HUGE thanks to Warlock and aludka from the forums for helping me out. Wouldn't have completed this build without them!
I originally budgeted $850 for this build, but that quickly turned into $1k, which ended up being almost $1100. I'd never built a PC before, and this was a nice learning experience. It has handled everything I've thrown at it with ease so far. It runs fairly quiet and cool, GPU hasn't been over 70* C yet, the most intense thing I've thrown at it so far would probably be Next Car Game 2.0 with tons of objects and cars flying around.
Eventually I would like to be able to run Oculus Rift, and the next upgrade before that will probably be a new desk, lol.
Just thought I would share. Comments and Criticisms welcome.
