Built with an i7 in mind. An I7-4790k was chosen because of the following benchmark.
A Geforce GTX 970 was chosen because of the following benchmark.
Build includes everything from the wireless adapter to the monitor. After using it for gaming, I can say that it runs all games on the highest quality available, even with quality increasing, performance intensive mods. I would definitely recommend this build to those looking for a strong rig without breaking the bank.
Layman's Benchmarks (I literally just played the most intensive games in my Steam library and recorded the results):
Skyrim: Ultra High, w/ tons of quality increasing mods = Over 60 FPS
Metro 2033: Ultra, both in characters and textures = Over 60 FPS
The Witcher 2: Ultra High = Not a drop below 60 even in combat, with the fans purring like kittens.
Minesweeper: ....I'll get back to you.
EDIT: AT FIRST, I skipped out on an aftermarket cooler because I will not be overclocking the CPU. The stock intel cooler keeps the CPU cool enough and the performance of the CPU is good enough non-OC'ed. I still will not be OCing the CPU for now, but I went ahead and purchased an aftermarket cooler.
See the Benchmark in the description of my build. Great power, great value, no OCing required.
