My last topic was deleted, not sure why.

My first build, see any incompatibilities? Anything I need to add (fans,cards,etc..)

I want wired and sound card in my motherboard built in and I want to add the wireless to the PCI

Again, thank you.

My second option would be this, add a GTX 770 2gb card and CX 750 PSU :

Mobo: Check out the MSI Z97 Gaming 5 or 7 to see if you like, IMHO i like them better than gigabyte

Everything else is good and compatible

How's it look now? With this Mobo, it has wired and sound installed. Does it also have wifi or do I still need that wireless adapter?

Looking good, you still will need a wireless card either by PCI or USB.

If i were you, i would get a 1 or 2 TB SSHD Hybrid Drive by seagate or a 1TB SSHD with a 120 GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD
