Description

This is my first build

Features a reference Geforce GTX 970 (which I find to be rare). i7 4790k (Not overclocked yet). 8gb DDR3. 1TB HDD. 750watt

This build is quite high-end, with one of the latest Intel chip sets and Nvidia GPU. The 970 I bought was over-priced at $380 but I think it was worth it to have the reference model which so few people have.

*Also note... This build can still be upgraded with SLI or more storage, even more memory, or another fan! Maybe LEDs?!?!

Don't know why people hate the reference card. I like it. Anyway great build :) +1.

This. I think it's the most beautiful version of the 970. If the slightly lower clock speeds bother you that much, OC it

I have the reference 970 also and I really love how it looks. It's very mean looking.

Sorry, I was generalizing for the ones that hate the reference card (y)

+1, great parts choice, nice photos. But why no SSD? It's completely worth the extra money.

Very clean looking build. +1 You did a great job. I have the same video cards, not sure if I will keep them since they run a bit loud.

at an all serious note dont go for the intel i7 for gaming (if thats what you do with it) your better off with an i5 or a AMD fx9370 and up because if you get amd you could get a better graphics card or an ssd

Doesn't an i7 kinda help future proof your setup because some games are starting to recommend it as a requirement like Metal Gear Solid V and Fallout 4?

You should sand off the green on the graphics card. How does it perform? I may get 1

No SSD YET! I did have a budget after all. Also you may notice the empty PCI x 16 slot...sli perhaps?
