Here it is. Price is negotiable and will be used primarily for gaming.

Thanks for looking.

My Parts List

Ok some clarifications.

1. I need wireless and would like AC.

2. I want the 2TB drive for video, picture, etc storage. The 1TB will be for other applications that don't need the speed of a solid state drive. The SSD will be for OS and games. I already have an external drive and a MAC with dual boot Windows for a backup of my 2TB storage drive.

3. I chose that case simply because I like it.

4. I've debated back and forth with myself as to the new 6 core Haswell, and decided that since I'm using it for gaming and normal everyday internet use, MS office, etc that I will not need nor benefit from a 6 core, nor the DDR4.

5. I'm not sure of any pros or cons to 970 sli vs 980. I kind of prefer going straight to a 980 and down the road if it gets to where the 980 can't handle it then perhaps go into a dual sli 980.

Thanks for your input I will look into some of those options. Due to your input I did edit my original post and add some clarifications. That monitor looks like it is a glossy screen rather than matte, and I definitely know I don't want another glossy screen. My current iMac 27" is glossy and I can't stand it. I want to see my game and screen image, not myself.

Ok well for pure gaming id do this and save the $ as 970 the best option for performance per dollar 980 isnt that much faster to warrant its cost.
i pick my parts based mostly on reviews
