LOL I completely overlooked that! I was 20 when you were born and Packard Bell was still a company so I feel old!

If it was just a Wifi card then I would have populated the top PCI slot with it, but the bluetooth feature requires me to plus the card into a USB header on the Mobo. That's the only reason I chose the slot I did. It should have no performance impact what so ever.

Looks like a great build! Only suggestion would be to add a 1TB mechanical hard drive cause the 120 GB ssd will fill it quickly.

All motherboards support this build my friend. Just not all support overclocking or increased RAM speeds.

Any z97 motherboard will do to overclock the CPU, and $170-130 is kinda the sweet spot I was searching for with my build. If you have a Micro Center near you, go and save yourself some money, have a great selection and face to face with someone with knowledge. (hopefully)

First, the RAM I have chosen is compatible with my Motherboards XMP profiles and CPU which allows it to reach speeds of 2400 Mhz.

Second, the speed of the RAM has little performance gains for someone like me, so would be considered a luxury purchase.

Third, the RAM will run at the highest speed your motherboard and CPU support if you do so desire. Otherwise it will run at stock speeds of motherboard or CPU, usually 1333Mhz-1600Mhz. Which again has very little performance gains in real world applications.

I would recommend the cheapest 16 GB kit you can find, the size matters more than the speed, and 16 GB is much more than the average consumer needs. But is super cheap right now.

For me it meets the needs of everything I use it for. Other's might prefer the next tier up GPU's which is subjective, but noteworthy.

Bought the 16 GB kit last week to replace my 8 GB kit I paid nearly triple for in 2013. Wanted to upgrade, and it's always better late than early to PC parts.

And yeah I just got a really good deal on the PSU making it hard to pass up.

Get a pencil with an eraser and spray paint it black. use the eraser end on you gpu, measure and cut accordingly. Lease conductive way and you can hide it behind the power cables. :)

Yes, the GPU lanes go from top to bottom from CPU. Regardless of it being an x8 or x16 slot it travels to the top one first. It's more beneficial to have two x16 slots, like I believe this motherboard has, in an SLI configuration.

No disrespect towards seagate, it was just personal preference friend. I was just keeping short cables in mind for the build but if it does not fit as suspected then there are several good options for 50 dollars.

I just wanted to use the 950 as the budget card, there is a smaller EVGA variant that would suffice just fine.

Thank you for your feed back fellow PCPPers
