The do make a mouse now, but I have heard that the mechanical keyboard they have on one of their laptops is amazing. Hopefully they will make a stand-alone keyboard in the future.

I recently upgraded the monitor, and now have a dual setup with 2 Asus ROG PG278Q 27" monitors. Obviously i like these a little better than my previous monitor, but the Asus VG248QE is still a fantastic monitor. No complaints about it at all.

haha i suppose I would be obligated to consider switching to an MSI KB and mouse if they made them, just to keep up with the MSI consistency... I really like what I have tho. The mouse is perfectly made for my grip.

haha very true. Consoles couldn't hold this PC's jock strap tho.. I didn't actually pay quite $2500. But the actual price i paid wasn't much cheaper, so I didn't bother editing the price amounts.

In my opinion, 760 is a great card, and I imagine it was a little more expensive because it has 4GB.. I think where you could have really saved some money is the RAM. DDR3-2400 is a touch overkill, and actually more difficult to overclock (should you decide to do that).. I made the mistake of overpaying for RAM as well :( but overall I think you did a really nice job on this rig! Enjoy

thank you!

There is a difference between the HP and Quiet fans. I would be lying if i told you the noise wasn't there. It doesn't sound like a jet engine or anything, but there is a constant hum.. That being said, I usually wear headphones, so the noise isn't really noticed while playing. the HP fans also really helped my temperature readings, which was the main reason i wanted to switched to them. Hope this helps. goodluck with your build, can't wait to see it

thank you for the kind words!

To answer your question about your power supply, I think 750W would work just fine. That being said, the cx750m is a bronze certified rated power supply..which isn't necessarily bad, but if you are planning to sli 770's with a nice i5, I can only assume that you are going to be spending quite a bit of money on other parts (mobo, ram, storage, etc.). The last thing you want is your PSU to crap out on you and fry all those nice parts! So.. I think 750 Watts is enough, but I would recommend trying to find a higher rated PSU, like gold or platinum for example. Of course.. it will be slightly more expensive, but in the long run I think you will be better off. Hope this helps

I've never seen anyone use those 80mm fans that way.. I'm not sure if it is effective or not, but +1 for thinking outside the box!

nicely done! To come in under 2 grand (including your monitor, and extra accessories.. and that gift card for the SSD certainly helped!), with all these quality parts, is very impressive. Good, clean cable management.. outstanding job for a first build!

I wish I could give 100 upvotes for the description alone! Honestly though, that is one of the best jobs of cable management I have seen on a PSU that isn't modular. Good job!

my mistake.. the list says 750W, but the pic is obviously a 650.. but like i said, I think this rig will still be able to handle bf4 no problem, just maybe not on ultra.. i guess you will find out soon tho!

Nice build +1... I have a modular PSU, so it makes cable management a bit easier, but... whenever a bit of the "new" wears off your PC, and you can stand to go 30-45 minutes without playing on it, you should clean up those cables as best you can. -- You may not plan on it now, but it will make life much easier when you decide to go back in there to add things like a new fan, a graphics card, LED Lights, make sure something is connected, spray compressed air, etc. etc.

could you make a better build? perhaps... but to answer your question, yes this would absolutely be able to play bf4 on High/ultra settings. To get the best PC experience tho, you really might want to look at a nice monitor. 1500$ worth of PC parts deserve a nice display

ASUS VG248QE 24" 144Hz Gaming LED Monitor

It was 300 when I bought it, but I believe it is around 270 now.

while i'm sure this rig will still be able to run bf4 no problem.. if u want to run on ultra settings, the system recommended requirements on the official site call for 3GB of video card memory, as well as windows 8 - 64 bit :-/...

But adding another 770 is easy, just not exactly cheap.. NICE RIG THO! +1

very nice build kaioshui!

speaking to the differences between a sli'd 770 and a single.. my brother has a single 770, while i use a SLI 770 setup, and truth be told there is barely a difference visually. I get better framerates across the board on all games (we play mostly the same titles), but it is hardly anything you can TRULY notice.

In the future, it may prove to make a difference, but we'll see. Bottom line, you made a good call by just going with the single 770 for now, and leaving yourself options in the future. well done!

sorry friend. it was rude to throw in the "lern two reed" remark. But when you throw out some statistical anomaly trying to debunk my comment in an effort to defend the submitter's part choice, before people get on and start ripping him for his selection, i would consider that to be rude as well.

the i5 is awesome for gaming, But from what i have researched.. if you really like to stream your gameplay on Twitch (particularly at high resolutions), or run multiple programs simultaneously, the i7 is better suited for that stuff.. I would guess the submitter probably likes to do those sort of things

expanding on what AdrunkPenguin and istealunderwear (both awesome names btw)... even though your case doesn't have a window, you still should tidy up those cables. With all of your parts (including the cables) putting off heat, You can get a lot of stagnant hot air that can't flow through the case with all those bundled up cables blocking everything.

It doesn't have to be perfect. This is a good looking build though! Very cool father-son project

Yeah one graphics card would perform for you just fine. I would go with 7200 RPM HDD if you decide to go that route.. However, if there is any way you can manage to squeeze an SSD into your budget, I would strongly recommend it. You can really tell a difference when your OS is running on an SSD compared to an HDD.

Beautiful Cable management! Did you purchase those cables individually wrapped in blue like that, or did you have to do that yourself? If you purchased them, WHERE CAN I FIND SOME? I would love some red cables like that.

Thanks! I have Far Cry 3, Battlefield 3, Tomb Raider, Max Payne 3, Diablo 3, LA Noire, and some others.. More to come with the Steeam Summer Sale, I'm sure!

I run just about everything on Max settings get great performance. I have to make tweaks on a few games here and there, but for the most part I just max out everything and play without any problems.

I do have dual 770's... not trying to be negative, just stating facts. IamApropos hit the nail on the head. while you may not get 120 or 144 fps on crysis 3, you still might be able to get 80 or 90. Last time I checked 80 fps is better than 60 fps... please don't misinterpret, i think this is a great build!

Looks like a damn nice build to me. However, I SOMEWHAT agree with the monitor comments. While it could be better, I still wouldn't consider 60Hz refresh and 5ms response "crappy"...Considering how nice the guts of the PC are, I think "below standard" might be a better phrase
