If this rig was a woman I'd treat her like the Queen of England if she was ever hot. With much respect yet with sorrow because I know as a common man I'll never be able to have her </3

It costs about the same as 2 non-reference 980's in SLI so I mean :P But 980ti should be pretty dope.

I think a Titan X with a modded cooling exterior would be sick in this build, if you plan to upgrade in the future.

Other than that I love the color scheme and clean cables.

Also impressive carbon fiber finishes.

Tad overkill on the PSU, but bravo.

Well I heard sketchy things about their after-market r9 series AMD cards, so I just kinda presumed ._.

RAM has been swapped.

Removed the not-needed adapter.

Ta-da? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/kW96Lk

Looked further into the performance of the 2 cards and ultimately decided on a beefy 970 card.

The Ripjaws RAM isn't listed for me so I just switched them for my convenience.

Added back the Asus wireless adapter because I kinda sorta need one because a wired connection is not a option for me.

XFX branded things scare me. Switched to a G2 EVGA PSU for 5 bucks more.

The two 970's would total to over what the 980 is priced in at and use more power from the psu. And a single 980 would be just fine for 1440p, particularly for what I'm wanting to play. Perhaps we're using different references for benchmarks?

I don't video edit professionally as I do a hobby. Therefore, the render times do not matter to me as much.

Here's what I propose: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/D6sGwP

The questions you're asking depends on what resolution you're playing on, what games you're playing, and what your budget is.

I'm sticking with the green team for sake of power efficiency. But your input is appreciated.

It has been shown that windows 7 a tad bit faster than 8. However it ultimately comes down to your personal preference.

Myself, I avoid Windows 8 like the plague. A lot of software I like to use has better support for 7 than 8, and I enjoy the classic start menu/glossy look. Also there's more customization with third-party themes.

But like I said, it's ultimately up to you.

Short answer? Yes. Yes. And, of course.

Although since you're recycling your old 8gb kit, and if you're not a fan of Windows 8, you could get Windows 7 home premium for roughly the same price. Though pricing may be different in your country.

This should be fine if you're doing 1080p gaming or lower resolutions.

Just added 6gb of ram and a r9 280. toned down the psu though.

If you're using a 1080p monitor, then the gpu listed should be adequate.

The 700 watt PSU is a tad overkill, but if you want to expand/upgrade later on then that should be fine.

Other than that, your build seems fine from what I can tell at a first glance.

Indeed I could paint the coolers. But I kinda want this to be more "out of the box" kind of deal. And I am editing the list to show only the internal hardware since that's more important than the two monitors.

Also just my personal preference, I wouldn't use both of the monitors for game play :P

There are none that have the black/gold look that the two EVGA gpus have.

Also two 770s should handle most if not all gaming applications without breaking a sweat.

I think you may be neglecting the poor CPU haha. But I understand reading over what you said. I went with the WINDFORCE series card because it cold at better temps and was cheaper.

I went with a IceQ X2 card instead of the suggested card. Cheaper, and it has 2 fans.

Here's an updated build concept: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/MalevolentDood/saved/4ErY

I can understand the reasoning behind adding a CPU cooler.

But why the RAM and GPU?

Alright so stock cooler is a definite "no" then. Thanks.

Well the summer months are very atrociously hot, and vice-versa in the winter time. But I guess I see your point regarding the "outdoor gamer" lol.

Still would like a white case though ;P

I'm thinking about switching to this: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-video-card-gvr927xoc4gd

It's more temp friendly and a tad cheaper. Only thing I need to worry about really is the space needed for it.

So the cooler with the CPU is a no-go?

Maybe the PSU. Aside from that, no. Though I feel a brand new out-of-the-box PSU that doesn't overdo it on the wattage would be better suited.

I'm gonna be running on a 1080p 1920x1080. And I am considering crossfire if I ever get the money.

I was implying that a white chassis would reflect light better as oppose to a black one; which absorbs light instead.
