So here is my breakdown:
CPU: Obvious Choice. Best clocked processor, overclockable, and 4 cores (don't really need much more)
CPU Cooler: Best cooler for the money, not worried about much with that
Motherboard: Asus is a good brand. I needed a Z97. so I went with this one. (Question: should I go with the MSI Z97 Gaming Edition?)
Memory: 16 gigs of DDR3 ram for a good price. Will help run games better also. (Question: Probably shouldn't go with anything more than this, correct?)
Storage: This SSD has been BOOMING. I'm gonna put the operating system on this, and all my more important games :) I don't really need the hardrive, because I already have a 4tb hardrive :P
Video Card: Went with a gtx 980 by MSI. Its cheap, and I personally LOVE MSI... (Question: Should I go with the Gigabyte or Asus 980, or stick with MSI?)
Case: Highest Rated for a reason. Not really gonna be looking at the case much, so I could honestly care less. I just want it to fit everything nicely, which this case does.
Power Supply: Went with a EVGA 750W 80+ Gold version. This will do great if overclocking, its gold, its 2x what I will need (according to pcpartpicker), and its fully modular, which will come in handy when building.
Optical Drive: I am really only going to use an optical drive to download the operating system... It's really well rated too.
Operating System: Already have due to my sister working at Microsoft :3
Moniter: I chose these monitors because they are a nice size (I have a pretty small desk). They have a 1ms response time, which will be amazing for gaming. Well known brand as well.
Keyboard: Razer. Black Widow. 5 macro keys. Mechanical. Enough said. :3. (Question: Should I get the black widow ultimate for 20 more dollars?)
Mouse: Razer. DeathAdder. 2 macro keys. Really don't need much more.
Headphones: Good brand with a filtered microphone. Pretty good ratings also, for a good price.
Speakers: Cheap and have some nice ratings. I know they are cheap, but that is just a backup in case I don't use headphones, so I'm really not that worried.
If the build is really bad (it probably will be lol), feel free to make me a build as well :3
I really don't want this to be more then 2,000 dollars, cause I only have 1800 at the moment (and I'm 12, so it takes a good amount of time to get money :3)
