You should link your parts list. :P

Preferably, paste the grid code so we can just see it without having to follow the link. Thanks.

There's a button on the top right when you're viewing your parts list. The default selection is the markup for showing the grid.

This build makes me drool a little.

Not sure about your intended purposes, but the i7 doesn't seem to offer much over the i5 when it comes to gaming, and 16gb of RAM is overkill for most of the time, but hey, it's your money and build. Maybe you're rendering video or something. More is always better.

All these parts look you asked, "What's the best _ I can get? Okay." They all look fantastic to me. Well, maybe the speakers leave a bit to be desired.

The keyboard/mouse doesn't fit in with the build quality of the rest of the pieces. I just got the same one and I really like it, though.
