Really can't find any problems with that build, SSD I am guessing will have the OS in it? MAybe for a faster boot time, the GPU is a beast and with that CPU I wouldn't see any problems with a build like that.

Alright man cool!

That SSD is for my OS and for a few games maybe. I picked that because it is cheaper and has very good reviews.

no cooler for the cpu? Also while the vapor-x is a good card, I personally don't believe it's worth the premium

I have one already and im going to save up for the H220X later on.

good stuff, then my only recommendation would be against getting a vapor x. I know people talk it up and it is a good card. But here's the thing, the PCS+ cools equally well in terms of noise and performance. It's also 80 bucks less. Thing is the extra VRM work doesn't really improve overclockability as the 290x/290 gpu die isn't the greatest of overclockers.

I get your reasoning but I really love the look and by the benchmarks I have seen I really like how it performs.

Fair enough, then consider getting an asrock mobo to get the same shade of blue to complement it.

Agree there, blue ram/gpu is a major mismatch with the red/black mobo, g.skill have red ram too (not sure of range/pricing) ASRock z97 extreme4/6 would be perfect
