I'm working on a list right now. You don't need the 4790K if you're not overclocking. It is basically an overclocked 4770K that has more headroom for moar overclocking.

cool, did you get that list done? though, i want the opportunity for overclocking hence the dual push and pull water cooling system. i changed my mind about that :). either way the 4790 is faster to render, runs far cooler, offers more fps, and all around outperforms 4770. not enough to pay a huge difference for or upgrade to it from the 4770 but considering the difference in price between the two are next to nothing it is a sound idea to get it over the 4770.

Alright I got it. I changed the Storage up. 512GB is really too small for all of your storage. 250 is plenty for the OS and a few games, leaving room for a high capacity HDD for mass storage. I also got a different set of headphones. Astros are flat out some of the best there are. I also did my best to maintain the Black/white/blue theme.

Added better components for the price, an HDD, and an Optical Drive:
