So I'm going to be using this mainly for gaming, with a lot of editing on the side as well! I like to multi-task movie on one monitor and and game on the other and editing on a 3rd monitor perhaps, in a year or so after I get the additional monitors. I really want to future proof this build to past 10 years. Also can someone tell me if the PSU is reliable? It's EVGA, and they are a well known brand but this is a 1000w PSU and if it frys my components I will flip **** lol. So how's the build?

It looks good, I use an EVGA PSU and I haven't had any problems even with overclocking. Your SSD is nicely sized and you should be fine recording as long as to set the destination into the SSD.

I changed memory for more sticks (more is better) and it's faster, reduced the power supply as you don't need 1000W, cheaper motherboard, great case (it also has a perfect spot for the CPU cooler), more and cheaper storage (SSD and HDD). Let me know if you have any questions.

I was actually aiming for 32gb ram in the near future , you also need a z97 board for devils canyon. And it's recommended to have a 1000w for CF

Apparently you just need a BIOS update to use Z87.

Yeah, but you need a compatible CPU to actually update the BIOS with unless you have a very highend mobo that has the BIOS update button...

Thanks for quoting me, I appreciate it. :D

some systems will even warn you and ask you not to update your BIOS unless "COMPLETELY NECESSARY". So if you just got a board that was already updated it would be the safer way to go.

Yes but in order to update BIOS to use the new CPUs you need a preexisting CPU to install the BIOS update. however, I bought a MoBo that said it needed a BIOS update but the update was already installed. But I would just stay on the safe side and keep to the MoBo that says its supported.

He needs more than 750W. 30W of free space is definitely not enough especially when it comes to AMD cards.
