I already have a 3770k chilling in my closet so no need to worry about a CPU.

Mobo: Asus Maximus V Gene
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 8GB 2x4GB
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB
GPU: GTX 760 4GB (because modded Skyrim)
Case: Silverstone FT03
PSU: Corsair AX750
A couple of notes as to what I'm wanting for this build...
- The case is pretty much decided on. I wanted a sleek minimalist case since it will be sitting out in the open in my living room. I haven't come across anything that really fits the bill as well as the FT03 IMO. Any other suggestions would be great.
- I do run quite a bit of mods on my Skyrim so the extra VRAM is a MUST for me.
- Although the PSU is MORE than plenty for what I have in it I do plan to have another 760 (or whatever GPU I decide to go with) for SLI or CFX if I go that route.
- I have NOT done any research on the dimensions of the FT03 yet so things like the H80i and the PSU may not fit. *Putting this together in my spare time at work* So anyone with suggestions and experience with the FT03 would be greatly appreciated.
As I was putting this thread together I thought about the Shield. Since the main reason for this build is so that I can game on my couch with a controller I have tossed around the idea of going with the Shield and just popping in a GTX 780 into my current rig. I haven't researched the Shield that much but I do know it does have some kind of video output. Along with being an Android device I should be able to connect my 360 or PS3 controller to the Shield and just stream my games to my TV in the living room. It would save me a couple hundred I suppose so it COULD be an option. *shrugs*
