Hi,

It has been about 10 years since I've built my own computer and not sure If I can even do it again. It looks like a lot of new tech has come out... liquid cpu coolers?! So I've been looking through PcPartPicker for two weeks and have finally put together a build. The Compatibility Check is green so I'm assuming everything will work. Anyways just wanted to post this for any feedback or any suggestion; I may be missing something and I don't even know it.

I see a lot of builds without a optical drive. How do I install a OS without a optical drive? Any help is much appreciated. Link to my build is below.

This site is amazing btw! http://pcpartpicker.com/list/8CX3RG

Nice build. If you do not have an optical drive, then you should purchase Windows 10 on a USB stick.

Instead of the corsair rm750 a good 550W is more then enough like the EVGA 550G2 http://pcpartpicker.com/product/qYTrxr/evga-power-supply-220g20550y1 or Corsair RM550x http://pcpartpicker.com/product/3zNypg/corsair-power-supply-cp9020090na. Or if you plan sli in the future a 650W would be enough.

You can put the OS on a bootable USB drive, or use a USB Optical Drive, or when building the system hook a normal OD while you have the side off.

Looks like a nice build, hope you enjoy:)
