Nice Build I really do like this Cpu. Might Base this one on my own.

Also in the last pick what is that extra tv and on the top right. Also is that mic a blue snowball? If so i have one too :D

Thanks! I love the 2600k, it's amazing, especially for overclocking. Very stable, runs pretty cool.

The 3rd monitor is for my stream encoder when I do live streaming, as well as temperature, performance, usage, and network monitors. Yeah, the mic is a Blue Snowball. I got it for cheap and I could probably never go back to a headset mic after using it.

Why the 570 over a 660 ti? Nice build apart from that

Why not a 7870 or 7950 instead of the 570? Why an i7? What use do you have for the hyperthreading?

I read the description. You don't need an i7 to stream.

You don't need an i7, but its perfect for streaming while gaming.

580 was the best card at the time of this build. I'm also quite the Nvidia fan-boy :D

The i7 was chosen solely for hyper-threading, actually. I game while browsing the internet, live streaming, using a chat client, and usually listening to music as well. The hyper-threading is a must and the i5 wouldn't get the job done how I want it to.

I also got a GREAT deal at a local parts dealer on the i7 when it was fairly new to the market.

The 7xxx series wasn't out? In that case, I suppose that was a good buy.
