Where did you purchase the case from? Having trouble finding it online. Is there a US-based retailer? Thanks!

It's older now. Get something like a Fury or 960/970.

How does that motherboard overclock? Are temps alright? Looking for a reliable motherboard to run an OC'ed i7!

You're quite the bargain hunter. It's too bad you didn't go for a modular PSU, but that's what you get when you need a good deal! Your cable management is actually decent considering the circumstances. If desktop use and light gaming is your goal, the single 285 and 16 gigs of ram you have shouldn't need to be upgraded any more. It's pointless to upgrade any further. But you can invest in a new mouse, that's for sure. I recommend the Mionix Naos series. The 3200 is on Amazon for $45 right now.

Swapped out for Ivy Bridge E and 16 GB of RAM. Get a WD drive if you want. The 850 Watt PSU is there in case you wanted to SLI down the road.

It looks like your CPU cooler is blowing air down towards your GPU, rather than up towards your exhaust fans.

Single GPU config, upgraded SSD, socket 2011 Ivy Bridge-E, add another kit of memory down the road to speed up rendering, get a nice keyboard and mouse for this setup.

If this is an editing rig, SLI does not help with rendering and Maxwell (for some reason) doesn't help at all either. I would go for a single GPU config and dump the savings into an X79 or X99 platform.

OP, please consider this part list before some of the other ones here. Upvote if you think I have a move logical parts list (swap out the CPU and mobo for a Z97 platform if you wish).

I can always go out any buy a Zotac Pico, though I'd rather build my own if I could.

If Linus said go for SLI 770's over a single 780, you're probably in for a treat.

inb4 "get a cpu cooler" You won't need a cpu cooler since you say you don't plan on overclocking heavily. When you do start overclocking, grab that Cooler Master heatsink like you say you originally were. The H100i will give you better temps, but at that price point, I HIGHLY recommend the Noctua NH-D14 or NH-U14. You'll get the same temps with the D14 and a lot less noise (quieter fans and no pump).

You might get a bit more airflow to the gpu as well after that change.

Just unscrew a few screws, clean off the paste from the gpu, apply new thermal pads as instructions included say, place new block on and bam! Water block installed.

If this is all you're putting into the 900D, you might as well have gone for the 800D

You should try Display Fusion and get more taskbars and more functionality across your displays. It's a whole other world. Also, I had that background at some point :D

EVERYONE DIES. Seriously, not much. Bugs, dust, unwanted things. There's probably a higher chance to zap the motherboard while handling the I/O. It's just a good idea to have it on.

THIS is the list of parts you should have used for your aunt. Bad deal on that hard drive, as $5 more gets you 1TB and the same price gets you 500 gigs. Not saying she needs it, really.
