This right here http://pcpartpicker.com/p/YsqCqs is my first attempt at building a gaming desktop
This is my build because i want as much power as possible from for $1500 up to $1700 max, For my gaming rig, As this is my first build let me know how it looks.
I went with the 4770k because i love the look of the msi dragon and the 4690k said it may need a bios update, Is this the case? I dont have the money to risk the usb flash method i found on the internets somewhere And i dont have an extra cpu either.
Again i took the msi z87-GD65 because i love the look and have alwas loved dragons, is it a good choice? Or is there a same or lower price board with flatout better construction/ performance?
The corsair h100i for if it ever gets outdated or i ever get ambitious enough to overclock, arctic silver to get My low temps worth.
Team vulcan 2x8 because it was cheap and i read that its better to get two 8gb sticks in one batch as seperately Purchased cards may have problems.
256 crucial ssd because 256 sounds like a reasonable amount..
Segate barracuda 2tb because of space wonderful space (that seems reasonably priced)
MSI GeForce GTX 970 4GB Twin Frozr V Video Card because i would like to sli another when i have the money.
Raidmax Viper GX ATX Mid Tower Case its green.. i love green... plus the one review i read said nothing about cooling problems
EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply, guides i read said about double wattage Max is a good future proof, most i want to pay for the powersupply with the current prices.
Cheapest optical drive i wanted, cant be too cheap,
Lowest price windows 8.1
Cooler Master OCTANE Wired Gaming Keyboard w/Optical Mouse and Razer Kraken Pro Headset purely visual preference.
Apologies on my overzealous use of because, its just how i speak,
