This is my Christmas gaming/programming PC. I pretty much use it for everything but designed it with high performance gaming in mind. I have already gotten some good feedback and suggestions on it before and this is what I hope to be the final iteration before I buy it. Any part suggestions and feedback are much appreciated

here it is

Looks good just make sure to stay away from carpet and ground yourself while your building it.

Similar to the build I recently put together for my brother! It was around $1600 just minus the HDD and the 16gb to 8gb instead at 1600 and different case. but everything else is exactly the same! Your build is going to work REAL nice. Runs probably 9/10 high-end games on ultra with high fps for sure. my brother gets ultra settings on battlefield 4 at max fps no problem. the MSI GTX 970 is a BEAST. pretty jelly. have fun buildin!
