Nice Build! I just bought the same case over the weekend but my build is not completely finished yet. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of LED fan are those?? I need them on my case lol

Thanks for the guide. What is the difference between the 80+ Bronze, Silver and Gold? Will it make a difference between power supplies that have the same watt output but difference efficiency?

I've got a similar build to what you've got going, but instead of the R9 390, I got the GTX 970. Since it sounds like you have a lot of knowledge about this stuff, what's your opinion on the R9 390 vs GTX 970. I'm a leaning towards the 970 due to no drivers issue.
