I'm here :)

Jokes aside, I only see small error with this build. That's the power supply being overkill. Everything else looks fine?

What sort of games do you play?

Fast paced games = 1080p 144hz

Slow paced games = 1440p 60hz

Great monitor with awesome reviews, It's $205.49 right now on Amazon and even has a curved screen :)

I went with a TV instead of a dedicated computer monitor. Works well for me and is a big upgrade over my laptop's quality. (Using the TV as my main laptop monitor till I actually get my PC). My only gripe is that it only has one HDMI port.

I just wanted to see what my part picking skills are, because I am going to build a computer soon. I am probably not going to build this. Thanks for your replies :)

Unless you're going to overclock that 6600K through its nose (why you would do that is beyond me) an H5 would suffice. The R1 is pretty hot though.

How much are we allowed to spend on this monitor? Does this all have to fall into $1600?

Oh definitely, compared to an AiO the R1 is a steal.

What I meant by that was; you'd only really start to tax a cooler that good if you pushed the 6600K to ~5.0GHz...and if you're that serious about overclocking you wouldn't have a 6600K.

But if the money is there then hell, why not? It looks awesome! :)

That is cool. Saves people narking up one trying to paint it!
