I think I've optimized your build to the best of my capabilities. I must warn you though, that pretty much every "Gaming headset" is a waste of money. Hear me out. I don't know how much you care about sound quality but gaming headsets are always more expensive simply for looking like and being labeled as "gaming gear". I highly recommend these headphones and this microphone over any gaming headset on the market, minus some Sennheiser ones.

Thank me later. Don't get baited into buying overpriced and less functional "gaming gear"!

Hmmm, I'd probably hold of on the case fans and use that cash to get a GTX970; you're only about $20 away from one

I kept everything in his build that he wanted himself and replaced what I thought was necessary.
