That power supply is a little higher than you need. An EVGA G2 550W will be plenty if you don't plan on SLI, but for 5$ difference not a big deal. Will a 240GB hard drive be enough? Other than that, good build! thumb.gif

Those Xigmatek XAF fans you picked are super loud.
18 db HA i had those fans and they are more like 38 db.

18 db is a flatout lie and they might be 18 db... from 10 meters away.

I really like the original build OP, I personally would go for a different monitor though. AOC has their 24' 144Hz/1MS Free-Sync monitor out for around that price.

Recommendation for a cheap 140mm fan?

Yeah thats the one, but remember monitors are all preference. I recommend you look at a few in person, mainly the different panels such as TN vs IPS. Each having pros and cons but id let your eyes decide.

As as far as fans go, I personally have always used Noctua or GentleTyphoons, I have experience with the NZXT Sickleflows and didnt like them, and the Noctuas and GTs i will stick with as they have never done me wrong, move air well, and remain quiet.

Yeah I just looked up what the difference between TN and IPS is, quite a difference I feel like. Will def. have to get my eyes on some in person.

Yeah theres a pretty noticeable difference. I prefer my 144hz/1ms TN panel mainly for gaming, but then again I play competitive CSGO so everything helps and im not really playing for the viewing pleasure. The IPS panels definitely have better "viewing pleasure" as the viewing angles are infinitely better, and the color is far better than TNs, but usually at the expensive of Hz rating and a high MS rating.

I have been lurking the monitor forums and you can find good korean based monitors on ebay or online. Im probably going to be picking up a refurbished Yamakasi Catleap 27' 144Hz IPS. Only $200, it is refurbished but I will be using it as a secondary monitor mainly for movies, not as my main.
