Description

I started planning this build awhile ago, it probably changed 5 times a day. When I went to go buy it all things changed. I wanted to build it for gaming. I wanted to go with new style of things. I like the z87 motherboards. I plan on overclocking once I get my H80i (I forgot to order it somehow). The ram I got wasn't what I wanted but it came at a good price, I will be getting another 8gb. In a couple of weeks ill be getting a ssd for booting the OS. The video card isn't what I wanted but it has the same rating/performance as the one I was going to get and it was on sale. The case I loved from the beginning, I like the reverse atx and the size. I will be making some changes to it. I already had a few things, but will be adding 2 monitors

I will be buying new parts whenever.

If anyone has an opinion to help out the build just say something!

Built 9/25/13

I will upload better pictures soon.

Are the pictures upside down or did you mount everything upside down?

Interesting choice on the GPU. Personally I would've gone for a 7970/280x for the price of this build.

this case has reverse atx. it flips the motherboard for the gpu on top. And I originally was gong for a $300 gpu. ill probabaly upgrade to something around that price if I can find a good one in a month or 2,

I don't really know how to rate it. Being the only one I've ever bought. But it's good, I would go with the gold version more tho because its fully modular. This one is only semi modular.

i7 is a bit overkill for gaming, probably should have sank the exchange into a better GPU.

it was a gift, i didn't spend any money on it, I think im going to return the gpu i got. someone said a gtx770 or r9 290 would be a better choice.

Yes it absolutely would. It depends on what you would prefer. If you want something semi quiet and cool, go with the 770. If you don't care, 290 is the way to go, but they are LOUD and HOT.

As someone stuck on an HD 6850, I would go with the GTX 770. My system becomes a space heater when I do any 3D work, huge calculations or game.

In the description you say that "You didn't know that the i7 3770 was better that the i7 4770k." What do you mean by that? The 3770 is definitely not better than the 4770k, who told you that?

on a few websites people were saying it has a lower temp when being used and that is just runs overall better.

Maybe lower temps, but not better performance.

$17,000 dollar build? Okay.

It's got to be a joke. 60 grams of thermal paste? 3 Blu ray drives? An FX series instead of an Intel Extreme on a 20K build?

Most likely.
