I have never spent a lot of time using Windows so switching from an iMac to this was quite a process. I didn't want to spend over $450 and wanted to keep it as close to $400 (not including monitors and other peripherals). Luckily I was able to find some great deals and made it happen. I think the highlight (at least from what I can tell from my limited knowledge) was finding the EVGA GTX950 FTW for only $110 on newegg after coupons and rebates. I know that the Rx480 is coming out soon and if I had known about it earlier I think I would have waited on this build a little longer to save up to add that.
So far I haven't overclocked the GPU or CPU, mostly because of thermal concerns and not knowing how to, but I hope to upgrade my coolers in order to do so.
Besides that, I'm not sure where to go from there. Hope you enjoy.
Side note: I'm really happy with my before and after versions of cable management in this build. Hope it's somewhat up to standards.
Prices I Paid after rebates and coupons: CPU: 75 GPU: 110 PSU: 20 HDD: 45 SSD: 40 RAM: 30 Case: 40 Mobo: 45 Total: 405
