Building new high-end gaming PC. Hoping to some day ( maybe 2 years or so) upgrade to a 4k monitor, once the technology is there, and probably add another gpu for sli.
The PSU I actually use right now, but it seems to still be good. I know 32 gb is pretty overkill for memory, but the upgrade isn't that expensive and I like the flexibility. I had one of my ram chips die on me and I like that I don't have to worry about that. I am working on a case and would love suggestions. I am looking for something pretty simple, and small but with enough room to comfortable fit all components and possible future upgrades. I don't care much how it looks.
This is what I have right now-- any input is appreciated!

Also, does this motherboard require a BIOS upgrade?

Any motherboard should have bios upgraded once you receive it.

Just look at the read write speeds. it's up top 4 times faster than the one you have selected.
