Well this is my first build. After saving up over $1k to buy the necessary parts, looking for hours upon hours for cpus, mobos, etc and studying each part carefully to find the perfect balance, and building the computer itself, I can say this has been one hell of a journey.

I do plan on overclocking with that CPU, but after I get a watercooler. I probably should of gone with the GTX 760 for about $40, but it's okay. I can still run games on High with incredible FPS. Coming from only having laptops and buying my most recent laptop for gaming about 5 months ago for $570, I can say this computer is a dream come true.

Like the build and all but just a little question. Why not go for an R9 270X? It's essentially almost as powerful as a GTX 670 but much less money.

I was actually going to go with that when I first decided what parts I wanted, but it was sold out almost everywhere and I wanted to go with nVidia.
