I have a 24" monitor now, and i honestly think it could do with being a little bigger.

but $90 is $90

I'm really on the fence in between the 24" and 27"

Thank you for your reply, I think you've given me the best answer possible. I appreciate it.

To fill you in on what I'm doing. I currently have a 24" 1080p 60hz monitor paired with a gtx 960. I want to step my rig up, but I'll have to do it one part at a time. I figured it's better to get the monitor upgrade first and get something like a 1080 ti later. I won't be able to use the new monitor to it's fullest potential with a 960, but i can still enjoy up to 144hz and 2k youtube videos.

I'm probably going to purchase the monitor this week anyway, regardless of sales, unless you think that's a bad idea.

I like this replacement, sorry, I meant to refine this list before posting. This was just a quick list, so there was some place holder items and guesses on parts that were out of stock at the time.

Save your current build. Start new build at top. Remove all button.

After years of research and development, it was finally made... Visual new car smell. This site is now more beautiful then it was while equally useful. I love the new design and as I am getting used to the new layout of things, I learn to love it even more. Keep up the good work!

Great cable management for a first build. If the cable is long enough you can route that (USB?) header near your Ethernet port from the top and through your motherboard heatsink (blue thingy).

This is a nice, well rounded build in my opinion. I like the parts choices very much, your research paid off.

+1 for the build and for playing chivalry.

Thanks, well it looks really good. I'm looking to get a nice black and blue extension for my latest build. I hate that normal MB power cords look like the inside of a clowns septic tank.

Good build for what it's meant to do +1. Have you tried that 960 out for a spin yet? How does it perform? I'm thinking of getting the exact same GPU for my build , and once I do, I think these two build will look nearly identical.

As a person who had been using stock kb&m for the past 10 years; having a mouse and keyboard with some actual quality is wonderful. They might have membrane keys, but at this price point that is to be expected. The LED is good, you can also get it in red or green I think.

After about 1 hour of using the kb&m on my comp, just updating and stuff, I launched TF2 and played like I had had the kb&m for months. My only complaint is that it is very hard to see the letters when the LED is off, but why would you get backlighting if you weren't going to use it, amiright?

All in all it's a great quality board and mouse for $30, I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

If anyone has suggestions for blue LED strips for this case please don't hesitate to tell me. Same thing with my M.2 drive, wth do I do with that thing.

As far as I can tell it is very good. I haven't tried OCing yet, but it's a Z97 so I assume it handles well. Lots of fan headers, good placements too. It's a shame the board doesn't have SLI, but SLI is a gimmick anyway, amiright?

The black PCB looks sweet, and those chipset heatsink thingys are very shinny. If you don't have RAM in mind already, try to get some that looks like mine, it's almost spot on.

The rebate process was easy and it's a good value.

People are freaking out because what they are used to is gone, that is very understandable. Take some time to get used to it, I already have.

The site looks great, I would like to give all of the kudos to the devs behind this update.

Can you elaborate as to why?

Also if I install with USB how do I confirm I bought windows? The sticker on the disc sleeve I assume? So does it just prompt me at some point during installation?

Perhaps because it's CAD and not USD? Even then I've heard parts are more expensive in good ol' Canadia.

For what it is, it's pretty good. When you get the funds just pop a 960 in your machine and you will devour games at 1080p. Welcome to the realm of PC gaming.

how much does the cpu truly effect my gaming, could I cheap out with a fx-6300, get a 970 with the money and be better off? Thanks for the list.

Yes intel is better, we all know that, but a fx-6300 cost half the price and is still overclockable. It's a good build for what it is.

I guess I can set up my PC the way I want it and restock my library while I'm waiting, i guess there is no downside to building the system early.

Thanks, those links help me get an idea of the performance, to give you an idea i'm gaming on a AMD A10-5700 APU with a MSI GTX 750Ti 2GB , so how do you think my future setup with no 970 would compare to my current setup?

Also to clarify, do you think it is better to get GPU a month late or whole system a month late?

Sorry for the question storm, thanks for your help.

If i skimp out on the 80+, and go down from gold to bronze I can make up for the ssd switch. I have a feeling that would be dumb even with a reliable psu brand.

I need wattage for future sli in addition to overclocking overhead for my cpu and gpu's. Even then is 750 too much?

I want to keep msi board because the color scheme and brand allegiance.

Changed ssd.

I'm working on changing the ssd now. Keyboard and Mouse will do until I buy better ones, i'm just trying to keep a budget for now, can't be worse than what I have. CPU cooler in the future. Powerful PSU for sli, or is 750 watt still too strong for 2 way 970 sli + overclocking cpu and gpu's?

Thanks.
