you should be able to route almost all of your cables on the back side of the case. I would also suggest using the usb's on your motherboard, not the pc case. There isn't a big difference, but it keeps things less cluttered for use.

I had a deathadder once and it broke on me in the first 6 months. Not impressed with Razer. Had a Logitech G500 for like 4 years worked very well. Right now I have a Steelseries Rival, by far the best mouse I've ever owned highly recommend.

Although your PSU is a pretty good one, I would check the voltages and look for any big differences. If you do a little research on faulty PSU's they can cause problems with your CPU or GPU which could be causing the stuttering.

I agree, 850W+ would be my recommendation.

You should try and update the pricing a little, I'm sure this build was much more than $2253.

I have done my homework... I never said the 780Ti was the best performance per dollar. The 780Ti is a faster card (http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-radeon-r9-290-290x-review). As for the "savings" you get with the 290x, you could just as easily get the plain 780 which is $50 cheaper than the 290x with similar performance. I'm not a "fanboy", Nvidia makes high quality products. It has been proven for many years. Nvidia also tends to have better and more stable drivers. The review even says "In review, both of AMD's Hawaii-based cards are undeniably hot and noisy by anyone's standards. Running constantly at a near boiling temperature of 95 degrees Celsius, a lot of faith is being placed on the reliability of a single radial fan adjusted to its side." So don't preach to me okay...rant complete.

He said he wanted to SLI in the description, so he would need at least an 800 watt. Nvidia > ATI and 780TI > 290x.

Sell the baby for parts and buy a R9 295x2. IMO you can always make another one.

A single 780 Ti will have a hard time getting more than 144 fps on max settings with many of the newer games. So a single card is definitely not overkill at all, SLI is probably MORE appropriate for his situation and performance needs.

Although this is a very expensive build, I don't think it's crazy over the top. It looks like you made very reasonable choices for the performance you wanted to achieve. Great build!

8GB of DDR3-2133 MHz memory for $74 is pretty impressive. Nice job G.Skill

Yeah it's too bad that SLI isn't more effective. A single 780 or 780ti would have had the same performance, similar price, and much less of a headache. =)

Always have loved NZXT cases, I'm sure you'll be happy with it. Only suggestions from personal experience would be to get another SSD. I started with one 128gb ssd and one 1TB hdd but once you get used to ssd's you can't live without them; and games are getting much bigger +20GB. I would have picked memory that matched since they all cost about the same, but overall good build nice job.

I would suggest a SSD if you can gather up $110 for a 128gb Samsung 840 Pro or Evo. SSD's make a huge difference, your life will never be the same.

Yeah I can't get mine over 4.3Ghz without upping the voltage. I run at 4.2Ghz which is really good for a small voltage increase. Temps never get above 45 celcius

Yeah 650W is fine for a single GPU like you said, but zero room for upgrades 2-4 years ahead. Would have spent a little more on a more premium motherboard too, made the mistake once before getting a cheap mobo, not good.

if you click on the performance tab of that same link, you can see that it only gets 30 fps on many of those games. You proved yourself wrong...

Is your PSU installed sideways on purpose? I'm thinking that Corsair 900D can have two PSUs?

Dual 780's isn't crazy overkill, maybe he's looking at two monitors in the future. A single 780 can't run every game at 60+ fps on Ultra.

I agree with mcbrideda, I hate seeing people without an upgraded CPU cooler . They are really easy to put on and help a ton in the heat department keeping your rig cool.

This is SUPER close to the exact same build I have! Only change I would make is go with the Samsung 840 PRO, but otherwise she's a beauty.

You may need more than two GTX 780's for 4k if you want 40+fps. I think you just won't have enough Vram.

I've been using Windows 8 for some time now and I like it. I'm assuming you haven't used it enough and are judging it by things you've heard.

Same with the SSD $199.99 for a 120gb 840 is nuts, maybe you meant to list an 128gb 840 Pro which is like $120.

It says in the description that the case on the list isn't the case in the photos, hence you can't read.

Why such a small case? I'm getting anxiety just looking at those poor components.

Your PSU looks like it was installed wrong too it's tilted really funny.

Many people put the stickers on the inside of the case. You could put them on the glass on the side case too if you don't think it will obstruct the view. Above the glass along the side of the case would look nice too. I just think it looks weird all clumped up on the side like that :/

Also you should add a photo of your monitor setup too that'd be cool to see.

I definitely agree with your SLI GTX 780 choice here. I see a lot of people getting GTX 780ti's and for $250 more you get a huge jump in performance! Nice build, would have liked to see Samsung 840 Pro's but I'm a fanboy.

If you want you could have gotten something like an Asus Pro Z87 and had built in Wifi. Just a suggestion for mobo shoppers.
