It baffles me how components are being designed to use less and less power, and people still buy these PSUs.
And yeah, 32gb of ram is only useful for some pretty hardcore video editing, rendering, stuff like that...stick with 8 or 16, but I'd say 8 is a good minimum now.
also can be used in Ram disk and Ram cache witch i suggest him doing
for example get ur In ternal HD caching on the 16gb of ram with speed of 1866 will make ur Hard disk flaying opening the files and copy paste faster then the SSD
so if u want to live that experience go ahead, on the otherhand i7 3770k is good for overclocking and folding ofc so go for it way better scores then i5 ,my suggestion go for maximus V formulla unless u wana be Extreme then go for the extreme and do the ram caching with half of the memory 16gb- leave the otehr 16gb for system
for that ram speed thing most of ppl are wrong 1600 mhz is the max for windows index to utilize if u go and do perfomance check for windows and get score 7.9 with 1600 mhz aanything more wont give u better windows experience but in softwares its different story and this guy he said extreme and custom water cooling he is not doing it for use or need only he like the stuff as a hobby want to get high scores and benchmarks etc.. with love to fold am i right ?
for monitor i say go with asus latest monitor 1440 hz amazing smoothness when i saw it i was like omg super smooth
