Thanks a lot man this is great I can go ahead and stick to the build now. I'm definitely gonna get the EVGA card now.

EVGA is still having issues with their coolers on their 10 series GPU's. I'd swap it out for a different brand so it doesn't cook itself. I will second the comment about the SSD. It's pretty much a waste of money to get the Samsung when something like the Crucial MX300 gives indistinguishable performance for less upfront cost

Oh EVGA still hasn't fixed the temp problem? oh damn I really like the EVGA card coz of the RGB and how simple it looks. I'll think about changing cards... In terms off SSD I think Samsung would be more reliable, I'll think about changing, the Samsungs look so good though compared to some other brands.

Pretty nice build with a nice monitor :D. You could go with a different ssd but samsung is realiable and if you are happy with it then go for it :)

Thanks I kept refining the build got rid of the noctua cooler coz of the colour and the g.skill ram coz of the colour as well. I also changed the mobo from the msi gaming m5 coz of the colour. I just want a black PC that I can modify with RGB in the future. So one day I can have black and blue, the next day black and red etc.

Yeah your build is cheaper but I think im gonna stick to my build I like the way it looks and I guess I can always overclock the ram but I think it apparently it doesn't do much for gaming anyway.
