Description

This is my first build, and it was for the sole purpose of gaming. So far everything is working wonderfully, and I am very happy with it. My graphics card, the part I had been the most apprehensive about, has been great, and is able to run everything and anything I throw at it to its max potential.

I would have just gotten an i5 and spent the rest on a GTX 770 or a better CPU cooler

Same here. The i7, though awesome, is pretty overkill for gaming.

Drop the hard drive into the bottom cage and remove the top one for improved air flow. That cage blocks a lot from the front intake fan.

Nice build, and fairly good cable management.

If for the sole purpose of gaming, I would have gone for the i5, saved a little money there, and with that saved money. You can get a better gpu, and a better monitor :p what srgtMacfly said about the cooler is nothing. The evo is just perfect for your build, and it will handle a bit of overclocking. Otherwise, good job on the build and congrats!

Remove all unneeded HDD cages, downgrade to an i5 (as a couple of people have already said), consider downgrading the PSU to a 550/600W unit, acquire a better GPU/get another 760 and SLI (if you feel the need to) with the extra funds, get a gaming surface or mousepad, and an SSD for boot-up. By my calculations you'd spend approximately $60 more.

Overall a nice build.

"all for gaming" You couldve saved money by getting an i5. Then you couldve saved that money to put into getting a better GPU

Recommend you spend less on an i5 or A10 CPUs and on a Mushkin Blackline RAM 8GB 2400mhz and get the 212 plus CPU cooler because evo and plus have no difference and spend more on a better GPU. Asus is very trusty at coming into GPUs.

Never spend more on your CPU than your GPU

The GTX 770 in my opinion is barely a performance increase to the GTX 760. If you really wanted a BETTER GPU go with the GTX 780. Besides that great build, i7s are great for gaming and more games now are using the hyper-threading technology, and one more minor criticism you should have gone with a Seasonic power-supply. They make Corsair's and a lot of other brands too, they are considerably the best on the market.
