One last time before I build

Hey guys,

Would love some last minute advice on my build here. What I've done right, done wrong, or should change. I don't have all the parts yet but I will have them soon. So I'd love to hear some critiques of this monster. Thank you

Gaming

You could save some money on a nice i5 and probably only lose 1-2 frames at most. Honestly an i7 is overkill for gaming. Other than that its a very powerful PC :)

True true but let's face it, this whole machine is overkill but that's kind of my point. It needs to last me a loooong time before another upgrade. Not only that but I've got a Micro Center not too far from me and I'm picking up the i7 for $250

I would have splurged on a tempered glass case also but that's me. One other word JELLY.
