This build is used mostly for gaming, schoolwork, and some work in visual studio.
CPU+ mobo: hopefully can keep these for several years. Have an open slot for a second 970 some day.
RAM: Fast and matches the mobo nicely.
GPU: Destroys everything at 1080p, rarely hits load. Love the way it looks too.
Case: Bought on sale for 80$. Very roomy and quiet.
Monitor: Absolutely gorgeous display.
