This computer build has been a long time coming and I am extremely happy to have finally been able to do it. I will be using this computer for many things including video games, video game recording, live streaming, video editing, 3D model designing, illustrating, game design, music production, and whatever else comes my way. I was very particular about specific components being used such as the corsair air 240 case, the 25" LG ultrawide monitor, and the GTX 970. I did want to go with an MSI GPU but from the look of things from their pictures I could tell the heat sink would be too high and not allow the case door to close.
One problem I did encounter was the PSU apparently not supplying enough power to the GPU over the single connection I originally had it on, and therefore, games that pushed the GPU crashed too easily. I went to a few forums and someone was finally able to figure out the issue. I just wound up running a second cable from PSU to the second set of pin slots on the GPU to give it the power it craved.
