Changed Your Mobo to make it closer to $1400.00

Changed your RAM. The one you had was CAS 11 and I got you the same speed, CAS 9 for 6$ more.

Got you a cheaper/better SSD.

Upgrades your GPU to a Dual Superclocked with 4gb of VRAM

Gave the non K version of the CPU since no OC, got a USB 3.0 wifi adapter, changed PSU to better brand.

you've done it again. Do you think 550 PS isn't enough I take it? Also, take out the K since I don't want to overclock..right?

How do the monitors look? Thought about doing one bad *** monitor..but I like the thought of two

any last minute recs on monitor? or dual monitors? Not sure I really NEED two...so was thinking of going with one really nice one. However, when I stream I think it'd be helpful to have two on hand. Buying this list today otherwise. Will post the build once I get all the parts in and back from my work trip next week.
