when is your surgery? can you wait on your computer? or do you need it now? because if you need it now, you are using haswell, but if you can wait, you can maybe look into broadwell. but do keep in mind broadwell is next year (except for the tablet version of core M coming out later this month)

mobo wise, i'd consider a Z97 instead of Z87. if nothing else but for the M.2 slot opens up some possibilities. i'd look into a Z97 asus impact.

personally i'm not a big fan of CLC coolers, i'm more into something like a SG08 + noctua or thermalright cooler type builds.

I would not raid0 a pair of small SSD's. you are wasting it since the advantage isnt going to be that noticeable. better to just buy a bigger ssd in the 1st place for its overall increased useful life.

as far as mechanical drive... 1tb is way too small for a storage drive... i think the most cost effective size right now is between 3 to 4 tb size. remember you cant use more then 60% of a mechanical drive capacity unless you are willing to take a HUGE performance hit on it.

as far as keyboard and mouse.... i'd recommend you read more reviews and actually go to a store that carry the mouse to see how it feels. i'm not impressed with the RAT mice as far as how they feel, and keyboard wise... i've seen some bad reviews and it's not a mechanical keyboard... so up to you what you want to do on that.

I am going to be getting surgery soon, so I am going to need this PC very soon.
I will look into your advice on the Mobo, but the Mobo listed is the one that comes with the PC..The PC is a Barbone System. Just add CPU, Video Card, RAM, and Hard Drives.

I chose to do dual SSD's, because I already have a samsung 840 EVO, still in the box, so I decided to just buy another.

I appreciate your advice on the Mechanical Drive, and I did find another 1TB Drive that I am going to add for a total of 2TB.

Keyboard and Mouse---I had a rat 9 before and loved it..the keyboard that I ordered I have used before, and I loved it.

Thanks for your input on this. I might end up taking a few more things into consideration.:-)

Milk that surgery for all its worth my friend smile.gif I just had surgery three weeks ago and it was the most epic gaming/painkillers week in years. Although now that I am back to work it is total suck being on lifting restrictions and my two kids jumping all over me when I get home. But I will never forget the week I finished three games!

I am thinking of switching the case to a Nzxt H440, and an Asrock Fatailty z97 Board. I was thinking of using EVGA Step-Up to Trade in the GTX-970 that is on it's way and getting a second GTX-980 for SLI😄

if you are only using 2 vid cards, you really only needed a high quality 850w psu. you wont come close to the capability of a 1200w psu. also, corsair tend to be more overpriced. if you are in japan, you may want to look into something like a superflower PSU instead. 1tb storage drive is still too small for a storage drive. as far as additional fans, you really should consider the SP instead of the AF fans.

I already had the PSU in my closet. I forgot I had that, so no need to buy another one. I did not a mistake on the Fans, they are AF. ( Corsair Air Series AF120) thought SP, but I was wrong. I am going to add a 3TB once I find the one I want. Thanks for your advice :-)
