How is this looking guys? I'm going to be doing strictly gaming. Looking to stay around 1750 to a max of 2000. Any thoughts or ideas are welcome

You don't need to pay so much for an SSD but that's up to you. 240gb seems to be the most economical.

They also say the asus 970 don't overclock well but they are still good

That's case is nice but the enthoo pro is just as nice for 50 dollars less

You could also get away with 600w and spend on a better quality one

How about this?

I already bought the case and I really prefer the Strix cards to the others that are currently out

Ithe h105 is the same price as the 100i I think and it cools fractionally better

That mobo is more feature rich for a streamer. There may be more suitable alternatives

You could run that that system with only 600w and you don't need to pay a premium for a Samsung ssd as it makes virtually no difference

These changes don't change much but they are just suggestions you may like - the build is fine as it is though. Have fun ;)

What would you recommend for a gaming motherboard with over clock potential as well as sli support? I could power it with a 600w, I agree but I like the extra room and peace of mind from the 750w. I don't mind spending the little bit extra for it

http://www.asus.com/us/site/motherboards/Z97/comparison/ This should tell you sli able mobos i would recomend the asus a and pro asus even have a pro games if you reall want a bugget opcion they also have the pro gamer which has some nice features and the same color spec as the one you chose. There's also the republic of gaming range if youre a real enthusiast.
