Hey guys, about to go into work so I won't be able to check for awhile but are there any changes you would make to this potential build? I already have the case and water cooler. I'm looking to be able to play most anything on max settings reliably for awhile.

Edit: I got the h100i v2, not the gtx http://pcpartpicker.com/list/Tcr2kT

This is how I would go. You're spending way too much on your RAM, you could get better RAM for less money.

Next I realized that you didn't get an SSD. Get one! You won't regret it, everything becomes so super fast once it's on the SSD. I went with 250 GB because it should be enough for the OS and your favourtive Games/Programs.

Now please don't get the Founders Edition of the GTX 1070. There are so many good custom cards, so make sure to get one of them. I thought that the card I chose would look good in your case, because the motherboard is white. But you can get any custom card really.

850 Watt is way too much, except if you wanna do SLI in the future. Otherwise grab a 650 or 550 Watt Power Supply.

I was going to get the 850 because I was considering going SLI in the future. I've heard good things about the gigabyte 1070, I'll definitely look into getting a custom one. Thanks for all the other advice though, ssd completely slipped my mind.
