When building 1. Put the processor in the right way.... you would be surprised XD

  1. after completion prepare for the outrageous amount of hackers and DDos sesions.

Other than that have fun! We all enjoyed our first builds

Ya perhaps your right. I guess it also depends on the titles that people are interested in. But with Games like Star citizen and The Witcher 3 coming out, I see a push coming.

Ya you could put it that way. But Remember more and more games are taking higher amounts of ram yet VRAM is still wayyyyyyyyyyyy more important if you already have 8gb of system ram.

If you multitask and do a lot of who-knows what at the same time then go for the 16 and the peace of mind.

Stock coolers are ugly, under perform and should be tossed into the garbage right away (partly imo).

Regardless is someone overclocks or not, an aftermarket cooler extends the life of your computer processor and (if anyone cares) it will increase the resell value as the next person can then overclock.

I have to call it out or someone else will. Ditch the stock cpu cooler it dampens the awesomeness. XD

It has turned into a 'thing' though, where a stock cooler is looked down upon within the custom pc building community by many people. You spend this much money and to skip on something so cheap looking. It's just painful to look at sometimes.

Sorry it is just that most people around my age 19 and area Canada do go to university or college around this time OR at least have part/full time jobs and still have to save up for life's other costs. Don't you agree with the advantages of pursuing higher education?

Or maybe he can afford it but rather decides to save up for $50k worth of schooling and housing costs.

Ughhh.... Anti-virus software. Yes I am prepared for the flak but I don't even bother with it. Most software is designed to keep out weak malware designed by dumb people in the first place. I use a cheap little laptop to test most of my torrents and other sketchy downloads and if I get a virus, oh well I just do a factory reset. However, if you are not that much into programming or don't know work-around with your operating system then well... then it is up to you.

In the 4 years I have had my computer the worst virus (kind of funny actually) I have gotten was a computer lock down that said "this is the United States Government you have traversed into illegal content, please pay $90 to unlock your computer. *sigh...but I unlocked it.

From my experience with Anti-virus software, I have found them programs to be of an annoyance than slowing down my computer.

+1 for the build

I turn off Vsync in 90% of my games because I can't stand lag, so I deal with the screen tearing instead.

bf4 still has 90fps+ on oc'd 970 1080p. He should benefit from the extra frames provided he has good eyesight.

Most people who get a 144hz monitors rarely end up getting 144fps anyways. You are right it wont, but I think most people get the monitors to simply go above 60hz. After all 100fps is still noticeably different compared to 60fps

Imo yes... and no. There will be some performance increases in some games for sure atm but not as drastic as some people may want. However many games in the next 2-3 years will start to benefit from hyper threading much more. I guess if you have the money for it sure, but the i5 is great if you need to shell out some money for say an ssd.

How do you like your evga g1 psu? I know that there is also a g2 version. Is your psu really loud or is it quiet?

Indeed the pro wifi is a good choice. However, I feel the pro wifi is overpriced and buying a separate wifi card (provided you have room + its cheaper) means you could use it elsewhere in the future.

I for one went with the asus z97 AR because I am sick of asus being stuiped with their gold colour scheme and the rest of the gaming world being red and black.

:( "One monitor gaming peasant" that hurts real bad... imo I would spend around $500 on one good monitor because I just can't handle the * borders that companies are not changing!@#~)~@$!!

On another note, wonderful build!

One a side note: Why did you get the kone xtd optical over the laser version? just preference?
