I should probably edit the OP to show the changes I've made. Anyway, I've since changed my storage setup to the following: 240gb SSD w/ a 1tb Storage drive.

I like the ITX build simply because I love the 250D case, and a small portable package would be most optimal as I'll be moving a lot in the near future. Though I suppose if it can be justified, a Micro-ATX build isn't out of the realm of possibilities.

As for the budget... I can get away with a final price as high as $1500, but I'd like to keep it as cheap as possible.

Whelp, that'll do it. I'll be changing some brands around to fit my preference, but the price point will stay the same. Thanks for the help! Maybe I'll post a build log when I actually start buying parts. I'll certainly be sticking around the forums!

Of course though, I'm still open to ideas. Any new input will be appreciated! thumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gifbiggrin.gif

If you have access to a local microcenter, the in-store price on the i7 would be $30 less, possibly a wash after shipping and time depending on distance and local tax rates.

If you're going to be doing screen captures while gaming the i7 is the better choice. One way to look at it, is that it can add UP TO 30% better compute performance in parallel workloads while only adding 6% to the cost of the machine compared to an i5, all other hardware being equal.

Not sure I would bother with a "color scheme" inside of a case with no window. Seems sort of counter-productive.

The 250D has a window on the top panel, and in any case (No pun intended) the only parts with colors that i care about (GPU and RAM) are on the lower-end of their respective price points. So I figured why not be a bit fancy? tongue.gif

I didn't realize that the i7 had that big of an impact on capture performance. Thanks for the tip! I was honestly thinking of going for an i5/780 combo instead, but you just swayed me. Plus the i7/770 setup is slightly cheaper. So win-win!

Tbis mobo has more has more power phases so is better for ocing
For heavy workload you need more than 8gb(video editing,3d modelling,compressing,etc)
The r9 has higher gpgpu performance than the 770gtx also has 1gn vram which leave a bit of future proof or for high modded games like skyrim or similar
This case is as good as the one you selected for less money
A modular psu whicj will avoid that bunch of cables while you build the computer and with enough power for a oced 280x and an oced i7
