It looks like a great build, the only thing i would change it to get a r9 series graphics card becasue they normaly have a better price/proformence ratio but if you are a nidia guy i understand and it seems like a nice build

i would wait till at least tesday to get it becase the prices are droping to make room a new gpu. i think its called the tonga or somthing like that. you could wait even longer and get that but idk how good its going to be and the price. I think its going to be a mid ranged card.

Looks pretty good. The storage should be fine for gaming, however, you might want to expand if you're going to be doing any rendering, or editing ;).

A 770 4gb for a few dollars extra might last longer.
