I'd look at a different gpu. Evga has been having cooling issues with their cards, so why not kill two birds with one stone? Get a card that won't fry itself, as well as one that fits the look of the build much better? MSI ASUS and Gigabyte all have very good cards that would work well with this build

Awesome thanks. I didn't hear that about evga.

They fixed the evga cards with a bios update if you really want that brand.

The other cards would fit the look of the build better than the EVGA card. Realistically EVGA has no real benefit in this case IMO

Yeah I know but some people like to stick to brands that's why I figured I would let them know.
