So this build started when I seen a mother board on a FB sale site for 50.00 OBO, after that I told myself that I would slowly piece together the parts needed to build my dream gaming PC. Being new to all this I tried to do a little research I quickly realized what I bought, and started trying to learn as much as I could. 15 days later I was able to consider the build complete, I loaded windows8 :( and updated all my drivers. The only thing I was missing was a video card, first I went with the PNY GTX 780 but noticed how little the price gap was to try the STRIX 970 so after returning the first card I am completely satisfied with the choices I've made. I do realize that my CPU cooler is stock and that is actually the next item I would like to purchase, please let me know which coolers you would recommend. I was looking at the COOLER MASTER V8 GTS or the CORSAIR H75 due to my case and mother board combined limitations I can only fit a 120mm fan on top.
