Gaming build that will need only minor changes for me to be at my full build out.
Only issue noted was not being able to have the "M.2-2280 Solid State Drive" be the OS boot drive with the on-board connection. Had to move it over to the add-on card that came with the mother board. May look into why at later time frame.
Had changed the cooling to fans after not finding a water cooling system that would not drive me crazy, but the V8 cooler master works like a charm, even if it was tricky to install.
Part of my parts list does not have prices noted, those items were from the last system build, mostly upgrades that were still fairly new and working fine.
Future plan is to get secondary 1TB SSD to play around with raid setups, and another disk drive that will play the part of a data backup drive. Other options may be to max the memory out and/or SLI the video with a secondary card.
I have not done a personnel build of this scale for a while, but it was worth it since the last one was a first gen I7 930 proc. (I was way past due on going forward on this build.)
