Hey guys,

first started because I bought that acer monitor from newegg during black friday sale (great deal) found out the pc I have can't handle it, So decided to go with a new pc

Wanted a white case, newegg had a combo sale for the cpu/mobo combo

Was worried the 750w psu wasn't going to handle 2 r9 290 card, seem to work fine

updated picture with the new cpu cooler Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK, thanks for the suggestion Smk54 !

primary use is for gaming, mostly diablo 3 and wow, few fps I have on steam. Looks amazing! 3dmarks - http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/5823957

The rig looks clean, you should add an aftermarket cooler with some white accents so it makes it shine.

that and since you're going to do alot of 4k gaming, it'll definately help with cooling. Try looking into a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO.

Nice build. White looks great! I did a similar build with a white Corsair Vengence case. Turned out great. There are multiple aftermarket CPU fans that are white. Phantek makes several. Would look great in your rig.

hmm, I downloaded open hardware monitor, And reran 3dmark firestrike benchmark, looks like the max was 78c for 1st card 85c for 2nd card, Idling right now at 58-60c for 1st card

Wow that XFX card looks beautiful in there with the white and black color scheme.

Why is a 1000W psu part of your planned upgrades? You're gonna have 100W+ headroom with that 750 even if you crossfire

I was thinking about overclocking the cpu and/or 290s down the road, might need more, maybe...

What's your opinion on the Acer B326HK? I'm about to grab one on sale for photo editing, but haven't seen many reviews/feedback about it. Would you recommend it?
