Hey guys,

http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/jj7C4D

Just wanted to know what you think of my upcoming build. What i wanted in this build to be future compatible, play high performance games and also to watch quality movies which why i chose 4k monitor.

Waiting for the Asus Maximus Formula vii to be released this year, to add on this build

Most of these parts I have chosen due to looks, not only I wanted good performance but i really want it to look great.

All these parts are going to be bought as a present, if there is any alternative parts that i can change just to make my wish list a little cheaper. any ideas?

but let me know what you think?

Getting a Maximus formula board is incredibly pricey, and the only real plus you're getting over any motherboard that's at least 100 bucks cheaper is the armor, personally don't think it's worth it at all (used to have a sabertooth motherboard)

This build is 400 bucks cheaper and more powerful:
