Description

I Have been building this computer for almost a year at this point slowly buying parts in between checks bc you know rent and what not. This build in my eyes is not fully finished I ultimately want to put a gtx 1080ti in this machine and also i still need to buy a monitor. I Traded in some old tech stuff at a well known electronic retailer and got just enough store credit to purchase the gtx 1070 so the graphics card being the last piece i needed I just grabbed it and ill save up for a 1080ti later.

I chose my motherboard for its good overclocking abilities and i went overboard on the PSU so i could have alot of headroom for future upgrades so i dont have to worry about upgrading that. The add on Wifi card was purely bc i wanted the best wifi connection i could get since i cant be wired.

Also yes this is my First Build ever in history of life for me. I Watched every Youtube video out there to the point when it was time to build i didn't really need much reference.

I Wanted to do an overkill build because i wanted to start out strong and just do long term upgrades in the future . I Started this build in 2016 and i Am just finishing it soo yea i have been patiently playing xbox lol. Please leave any comments and tips. be critical if you must but lets be kingsmen people .

Dang! Nice job! +1 why the corsair 1200w tho?!?

I think the reason for 1200w was "I Wanted to do an overkill build because i wanted to start out strong and just do long term upgrades in the future"

The question is why X299 vs X399? X299 has a 3 year upgrade path. X399 has at least a 5 year upgrade path (accordingly to AMD and the TR4 Platform).

Oh. Sorry about that. I forgot to read the description..... Good point though about x299 vs x399. Maybe you just wanted Intel more?

Yea i went with intel just for easier compatibility options and stuff.

Why that adapter? You could have gotten a USB adapter for $30 that would connect you to the same 5G / dual band networks and would free up a PCIe slot.

i felt that PCI-E is a faster connection to the computer than usb. plus the antennas are helpful for a couple extra feet of range. PLus its a pci-e lane off the chipset not my processor so i still have 12 lanes even with my graphixs card x16
