My build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/WHLQvK

Just like to know what people think of this system? I really like the Xeon especially since I've found a good deal on it (not on this site). It fits my needs. As the for the Radeon R9 295X2 it has been relatively low on Newegg recently even now there is an 8% promo. As for the other parts of the system I've found them to be well reviewed and think they would generally make a decent system.

Thanks for your time

6th paragraph after "May Updates" explains this well

For what I need I think it's good and I can get it at a low price.

No need for a Z chipset motherboard if you do go for a Xeon CPU as you can't overclock it.

The R9 295x2 is only going to get cheaper with the release of the GTX 980Ti and the imminent release of new AMD cards.

Would you recommend this motherboard instead: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-h97plus

And I do have one and I don't take up tons of space.

Off topic. Is your profile picture of Eisenhower?

Nice, although in my opinion no one beats Lincoln. We've had many great Presidents as well as not so great ones.

Pic looks better than mine
