Is this a good build? are all the parts compatible with each other? is the case big enough for the parts? and what about future upates? and can you tell me which parts do I need in addition? especially fans.

I really appreciate any comment.

Thanks

looks solid. You need a DVD drive, an OS, and case fans if you don't want to run the stock ones. Noctua fans are best IMO i have 3 as intake in my rig, and I also use corsair sp120s for my radiator and af140 for exhaust. Just make sure GPU and radiator have enough clearance for the case.

The gpu spec page, radiator spec page, and case spec page should tell you dimensions and clearance

Well I have real them. the dimension are okay on paper, but a little tight it seems. So I wanted to see if any one have experience with this setup.

So I decided to change the case to "NZXT - Phantom 530 ". Now can anyone help me with the fans? how many fans do I need? and which fans are great and quite?

The build looks solid. $750 for a monitor makes me cringe. I'd rather spend another $250 on the GPU and get something like an EVGA 1080 FTW. But to each their own! You won't be disappointed with this build, and it'll last a while.

Closest thing I could say is more storage if you don't want to worry about every having to reinstall a game

Thanks.

About the monitor, do you have a suggestion which is cheaper? I am looking at ultra wide monitors and don't care much about above 60hz refresh rate.

At 34" and ultra wide, that is probably about the right price range. It's a great monitor, and is 1440 so you certainly would be happy to have it.

I have duo 27" at 1080p, which I am more than happy with. It's on sale right now for $215x2 = $430. It's all personal preference. I'd get that monitor if you want 34" ultra wide

For this build and case, how many fan do I need?
