My Almost Complete Gaming Build - Midrange?

Design: All of these will be painted for the black/red look.

However, "almost" complete because:

Missing the cooler - Hyper 212 Evo is replacing it for now

Missing the keyboard - Razer Blackwidow 2014 in its place till then

Missing the monitor - Still on an Asus VS24H

And lastly, missing the GPU - Still on a Sapphire NITRO R9 380X OC 4GB

Bootup - 5 seconds?

Current performance in games (with the R9 380X):

Shadow of mordor - lowest fps 60. Highest 130.

Overwatch - low settings 240 fps.

Borderlands 2 - max settings - never seen a single frame drop.

GTA 5 - 90++ on full everything fps.

Fallout 4 - 100+ on ULTRA. Game detected Ultra and i found nothing i could increase.

Will update as i keep testing games...

Compatibility: See notes below.
