First, here's my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Rumaan/saved/nM2Qzy
Edit: (Updated part list based on xPat's advice)
So I've been using laptops for a while, most recently an Alienware, and now a non-Dell desktop will suit me much better. Upgradable components, better pricing, etc. I'm all lined up to buy this through Amazon (some of the discounts are listed wrong on this site, notably the motherboard). My hopes for this desktop are to eventually, when I need it,
get a second 970 card, maybe upgrade the RAM if necessary. I want to be using this thing for a good while.
Is there anything I have listed that some of you more experienced PC builders can recommend upgrades/changes to, or catch any problems that I may have missed?
My non-negotiable requirements are a 1TB SSD,
the 970 graphics card (I want at least this) (GeForce 1060 is better at the same price), minimum 16GB RAM, and a quad core processor. If there are good reasons to change these, I'm open to suggestions. Preferably reasonable upgrades. XD
P.S. I do have a screen, mouse, and keyboard already. Wired Internet isn't really an option due to the routers position. I also have a cat who like to hide behind my laptop because of the heat, so the case I've chosen works well because I can actually see the cat if she covers the fan.
