Description

I use this machine mainly for gaming and just web browsing. What pushed me into getting multiple monitors was the thought of being able to skype my girl while working on stuff or gaming. Im leaning towards into upgrading my mobo and cpu sometime around this summer. Any suggestions? Should I get a liquid cooling unit? My 120mm LED side fans and 140mm front fan is still on its way ill post updates as soon as my parts get here! :)

You should get a liquid cooling unit or high-end air cooler if you plan on getting a K series CPU. Awesome triple monitor setup btw!

I would get a new PSU to supply enough power for the crossfire setup.

Imho, some of the parts choices are unballanced.

Just a couple complaints, that really can't be changed now: I can understand if you bought the case for the case (if that makes any sense _^; ), it looks great, but its a pretty big for what you have in it. You could have probably saved some dosh and gone with a mATX case, but eh. Also, it looks like you have a misnomer on the mobo. You have the H87- Plus listed, but the mobo in the picture says H87M-Plus. Their isn't much of a price difference, the 'non-m' is a full ATX and the M is a mATX.

Now in terms of upgrades: If you want more expansion, you may want to look into a z87 mobo, but only if you are planning on upgrading the CPU as well. You are not going to be overclocking with that 4440, even if you did upgrade to z87. And if you decide to overclock with those upgrades, that stock cooler will not cut it. The 212 evo appears to be the goto cooler, and you should have ample clearance in that case. I used an evo for a while and I could push my 3770k (z77) to 4GHz without any heat issues. Maybe an SSD for the boot drive. The Kingston 120GB HyperX 3k's price is dirt cheap anymore.

Idk, this is just what I saw. You shouldn't have to worry about crossfire any time soon, that is a pretty solid GPU.

Personally, I have not used a hybrid, so I do not have much advice on that. Do a bit more research, and definitely ask arround.

Kinda new to this site and commenting on builds. With that said a little longer description and more pics would be great. With out a better description ill just have to go off what is posted here. I believe you could have saved easy 150-160 bucks and went with a few better options in parts. For one the Case while nice seems to me like you could have picked up a good 70-80 dollar mid tower one. Along with getting windows 7 home and saved 100 bucks there. With those savings you could have picked up the 4670k version of the i5. Also could have picked up a 2x4gb set of ram as your motherboard supports duel channel. Other than that i like the video card.
