DON'T COMMENT IF YOUR GOING TO BE A TROLL, ONLY OFFER CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM AND ASK QUESTIONS!

Upgraded - http://pcpartpicker.com/b/NMr7YJ

I know my MOTHERBOARD and CABLE MANAGEMENT SUCKS. I will be buying a way better monitor and maybe a speakers system soon.

This was my first build ever, putting in the parts was fairly easy with the help of my older brother and some you tube videos. The cpu cooler was a pain in the *** to put in, and I ended up putting the CPU cool the wrong way, don't worry I fixed it.
It runs assassin's creed black flag on very high with a little frame rate stuttering a times. I salvaged the monitor, hard-drive, and optical disk from my old pc to save money.

Nice build, but why did you go with the 4GB 760? The 760 is not strong enough to use all 4 GBs of VRAM. I would've gotten a cheaper 2 GB 760 and used that money to get a better PSU, maybe a modular/semi modular one with higher efficiency. Overall, nice build.

it's not about using all the vram... it will be able to use a SIGNIFICANT amount of extra ram if necessary, this is an advantage if the user wants to play games at a higher resolution or one more than one monitor.

games like bf4 peak at 1.8gbs of ram with all the settings maxed out at 1080p + eye candy at 4x. we will start to see games that will use more memory than 2gbs in at the end of the year or even in the next few months, having that extra vram will be an advantage. say if a game needs 2.5gb and the gpu only has 2gbs of vram, the vram will be a bottleneck and with the extra vram, the user does not need to worry about this.

The 4GB was only $40 more and I didn't know at the time what modular meant. That was the best graphics card for under $300 according to gpuboss.com. The PSU gets the job done, and the mother board will be upgradeed at a later time.

You shouldn't be giving tips when you don't really know what you're talking about.

Why did you get the 4gb card? 760 will never utilize Why did you willingly know the Motherboard had bad reviews yet still buy it? Don't blame the PSU for your crap cable management as there have been a few builds with this case/psu and they had very nice cable management.

Do you like the amount of clearance you get with that case and the 212 EVO or is it an issue?

You can barely fit the heatsink in there with about 1-2mm of clearance. I'm cutting it close.

How well does the 212 EVO fit in the case? I was wondering if there are any clearance issues with it.
