It's been quite a while since I've done a custom build and I'd like to jump right into one! Due to upcoming career opportunities and the desire to occasionally do some light gaming (WoW for me, and Sims 3 for my wife), I wanted to put together a nice machine that has plenty of room for upgrades. In the past I'd deck the machine out spending thousands upon thousands of dollars up-front and have it as a trophy for bragging rights. A bit older and wiser, I realize that I can have a beautiful machine and upgrade it as desired. This also keeps me invested into the machine, and will cause for me to be more conscious about cable management improvement, cooling improvement, and further maintenance as time goes by.
Anyhow, I put together what I believe to be a pretty solid build for what I want, but I wanted opinions on this. I'm not concerned so much with lowering / raising the price, so as long as it isn't an unnecessary and extreme increase (eg: from 1600 to 3500). All in all, I'd like some feedback and hopefully I can get this build spec finalized so that I can start the process as soon as possible!
