So far I like it

Similar case and system to mine.

 

All in honesty I don't see any difference between H80 and H100 much. Thought of getting a H80 and save some Money? H100 is better of course but for me upgrading was not worthy.

3770k is great but if you are not doing video encoding or stuff like that 3570k could be a better option. But if you do not mind the extra price between 3570k and 3770k than definitely go with the 3770k

Good memory

Good motherboard

Good storage

Good Video Card. I also prefer Nvidia products.

Good case but if you have the room why not try to go for a full tower? Corsair 800D is grea. Cooler Master Cosmos II as well

Good PSU. Even you can get by with something smaller.

Good optical drive

Operating system I would go for Windows 8. I love it but the experience might be different from person to person. I would not go back to Windows 7 after using Windows 8.

 

I don't see a monitör there. What are you going to be using?

Good monitors but if someone is to buy a new monitör in this generation, than I would recommend them to check out 1440p monitors.

 

People with 3 1080p monitors did the switch to a single 1440p monitör and pretty much all are happy.


But at the end of the day this will be your choice.

 

The monitors you showed are pretty good though but remember it is not IPS and only 1080p

your PSU is a bit much, a 650w would cover your build easily... even if you went SLI you would still be covered. unless of course you are planning on some serious overclocks! wink.gif

Well 1440p monitors in newegg are a bit expensive and this might be the cheapest one in price

 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236294&Tpk=ASUS%20PB278Q

 

So anyway we are talking about at least 650 dolalrs for a monitör.

 

However if you can import a 1440p monitör via ebay like most of us did here in OCN, than you can get a pretty nice 1440p monitör for $350.

 

The image quality of the Korean monitors and monitors such as Asus or Dell are the same.
