If I'm correct, I don't see a Hard drive, are you planning to add it later?

Yes, I planned to grab one later.

Then this is a beast of a build, your CPU is adequate for that GPU, and thinking that you may have the OS put in the SSD it will be pretty cool! Nice work and good luck!

When are you planning on getting a hard drive 120gbs will not last very long

I'm checking out my order right now. I will probably purchase a hard drive in two weeks or so. Decided to put the hard drive money on that GPU for now.

Ok just making sure with the size of games now a days you'll probably only fit one game on there

This comes down to preference (and it's not really necessary as your case doesn't have a window), but seeing as your RAM and GPU are yellow/orange, I would get a motherboard that matches. There are many that are yellow/gold.

The actual RAM sticks come in red color (matches with the mobo heatsink): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313416. I just couldn't find that model here.

I will probably get away with that GPU also, since the orage-striped side is faced down in ATX cases :) will not be able to see that most of the times.

looks like a mighty fine build to me.

any chance of SLI in the future?

  • 71 months ago

I probably won't. This GPU is all I need for at least 2 or 3 years. After that I will just upgrade to a newer card if I need to.

good luck with the build, man!
