Description

This is my first time building a computer. The build seemed to go really well with no major issues. Computer is now functioning well; boot up time is really fast thanks to the SSD.

I'm open to feedback on this so your comments are very welcome.

This is a sweet gaming build, but watch out for the low storage space. Also, you could post more picture.

More pictures please!!!

Your computer is very similar to mine.

Good system, but why a gtx 770 instead of a 970?

I chose the 770 mainly because of the legal issues the 970 is running in to: http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/199684-nvidia-slapped-with-class-action-lawsuit-over-gtx-970-memory-issues

Might not be a huge issue

I'm looking into a similar build but am hesitant on the noise levels of the 450D case. Could you share you experience with how noisey the case is? Thanks!

The CPU can be changed to a Intel Core i7-4770k, the motherboard can be changed to a MSI Z97, and the Case and Powersupply can be changed to Raidmax vampires. The operating system can be removed and downloaded from internet to USB Flash Drive. If you're not doing 4K gaming at Ultra, then I just suggest the r9 280x sapphire vapor-x graphics card to go with the build color and for amazing gaming close to what the 770 can do.

I chose a lot of those parts to go with your build and because I think they look beast :D

I think when he said open to suggestions he probably didn't think of changing 75% of his build. Also never go with Raidmax.

I love their products and have never experienced anything bad using them.

Well the PSU's are low quality, and might give an electric shot that kills the system. It happens. The cases are fragile and have different colors. Just watch HardwareCanucks.

You could have used the GTX 970 or just suffice for a GTX 960 because a single 960 is $200 and preforms very well and is optimized.

A general word of advice is to avoid cheap PSU brands like the plague (Raidmax, Antec's lower end stuff, Diablotek, etc.)

From experience, everything that I had just told him is what I had in my blue build and doesn't fail to run 24/7 amazingly.

@wildskiller actually i would change the i7 4770k to the i7 4790k. it has higher clock rates and it's the same price

Raidmax isn't as bad as people think. Unless I'm the lucky one who gets all of their good quality products :/

The R9 280x is what I'm using with an AMD FX-8350, which is AMAZING. The 8350 does better than the i7 4790k in very few games, but I don't do too much gaming any way. If I didn't have a tight budget, I'd go with the 4790k.

With the MSI 940a G46, I overclocked the CPU to nearly 5.2GHz in a couple of seconds using a cosair H60. It's nearly impossible to do that without crashing with the standard cooling fan because of MAJOR overheating.
