Also, Why a different CPU cooler? What cooler do you recommend? I cant really do much more than that price, but I could probably go up to around 50 bucks for a cooler.
Eh, I really want a SSD, but I cant really afford that and a hard drive, and honestly I need space more than I need speed.
That looks like a nice drive, but doesn't blue mean its slower or something? I trust western digital for sure.

Get the Blue drive. It uses a 1TB platter and is faster than the Black. And the Hyper 212+ EVO is about the best bang for the buck cooler you can get - it is a good choice.

If you want to save a few bucks to fit in a SSD, you can get the Asus P8Z77-V LK instead. It'll perform the same as the -V as long as you aren't going to CrossFire/SLI. You could also drop to a 550W power supply if you wanted.

Edit: Actually, I'd switch to a Rosewill Capstone 650-M anyway. It is just as good as the Seasonic, and $30 less. If the 550-M ever comes back in stock, you could get it for another $30 off.

The monitor is EPIC 2560 x 1440 IPS Panel. I've been wanting to get one for a long time! I'm curious though, as I haven't done any research on it, but would that graphics card run games at that resolution? If you want to save yourself a bit of coin, Samsung make a nice 1920 x 1200 24" 19:10 monitor for 200$ not sure how much over there. It's not 2560 x 1440 but still nice, and they have an awesome aspect ratio for gaming. This would allow you to buy a SSD, and a good cooler, or whatever you want. I never saw the appeal of an SSD until I got one, and now I never want to go back! I also don't need space on this computer, as I have a media server that I throw all my data onto.

I completely understand if you want to keep the monitor, I can't wait until I buy one! Just my thoughts. Good luck with the build!

Okay, you've convinced me on the HDD, i'll go for the blue. As for the PSU I've always been told not to cheap out on those, and rosewill is not a very reputable brand. I was originally going to go for a cheaper corsair, but I thought the modular looked nicer.

Also, the other motherboard doesn't have onboard wireless, and I kinda want that haha, so i'll stick with that.

I've researched it, and from what I found the 7950 should run games at 1440p without much of a problem, but if I do end up having troubles, I can just scale the resolution down to 1080p or 720p on games. I really want to the real estate 1440p gives me

Yeah, I don't blame you! 1080 or 1200 would be fine for games. My little GTX560 has no troubles at 1200p, not sure what its like in games between 1440p and 1200p but I'm looking forward to finding out!

Not right now no, but maybe sometime in the future.

I know where you are coming from, but the Rosewill Capstone series is an excellent PSU - as good as pretty much anything available now. It has Superflower internals and it is fully modular. Don't discount it just because of the name.

Meh, like I said, I would just rather go with a more reputable brand. It was honestly going to be corsair or bust, but I saw the SeaSonic, and it looked really good and i've heard good things about them. So i'ma stick with it I think.

SeaSonic is Corsair without the Corsair name. Same parts, same quality, same goodness minus. I already take back that statement perhaps a Corsair Rep can clarify more but most of Corsair PSU are manufactured by SeaSonic

Do not quote me on that statement exactly but it's something like that
