Here's a link to my current part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/smorris15lb/saved/yQWKHx Any advice and/or criticism is totally welcome, I want to buy the best pc i can for my money. Only requirements are that it has to be less than $1400, and i need to purchase a 27" monitor. Thank you!

Here are some things to keep in mind - you only need 8GB of RAM, and while we're talking about that be sure to get 1866MHz RAM instead or if you can find it 2133MHz RAM that doesn't operate over 1.5V. 1080p on a 27" monitor can be too low-res sometimes, I recommend 1440p. All the rest seems fine. Good luck!
