My first build

I know I went a little overkill but I've always wanted to have a good gaming desktop or really my own personal one I've built.

  • not sure how to overclock so I don't want to screw anything up.

Compatibility: See notes below.

Compatibility Notes

  • Note:The Cooler Master Cosmos II ATX Full Tower Case supports video cards up to 385mm long, but video cards over 190mm may block drive bays. Since the PNY GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6 GB Video Card is 267mm long, some drive bays may not be usable. The Cooler Master Cosmos II ATX Full Tower Case hard drive bays are positioned where some of the bays may be physically blocked when using longer video cards.
  • Note:Some physical dimension restrictions cannot (yet) be automatically checked, such as cpu cooler / RAM clearance with modules using tall heat spreaders.

    In my opinion the optical drive is uneeded, motherboard too pricey, and without a need for any heavy editing or rendering, the i7 is wasted. I would recommend using the saved cash to up the GPU to something more impressive or putting it towards a monitor if needed.

    Several things to note (take this as an opinion) the case and having an eatx motherboard seem very, very overkill with listed parts unless your hoping to do very major upgrades in the future, $300 could be easily saved on these 2 parts. Not having a SSD in a $2500 setup seems somewhat odd. The GPU you have listed is a reference design, for essentially the same price you can get a factory overclocked card with a custom cooling solution from the manufacturer that will run slightly faster, be quieter, and cooler.

    I had already pre bought the CPU and the case but had to take a small personal loan from a family member to pay for the rest so I really had no choice to put in an SSD. I could have but I was a bit over excited about my first my second will most likely be a bit better and more reasonably priced.

    Thank you for the comment :)

    i would say dont choose that case, it is way too big for the parts you have and aslo intel recommends that you water cool their x99 cpu's with a custom loop or an all in one like the liquitech from entermax

    This is a bit absurd for gaming. You really won't see much improvement past 8GB of system memory, certainly don't need 6-cores. That mobo is really designed for over-the-top, competitive overclocking - save your money and get something simpler. Your storage media is what is glaringly out of place to me. Get an SSD. Period. An SSD would be a bigger performance benefit to you than the processor, excess RAM, and mobo combined.

    Thing is, he needs that much RAM if he is going to be recording him gaming.

    That's just completely and utterly untrue.

    Memory has very little to do with gaming (unless you are using integrated graphics), and even less to do with game recording. ShadowPlay has very little overhead, and most of that is on the GPU/CPU.

    Check your facts.

    Get a cheaper motherboard, you don't need 32gb of memory or a $300 case, get an ssd and a better cooler. (Great choice of peripherals)

    If you aren't using the most CPU intensive options, you won't need an i7

    Get a SSD to improve this build for gaming.
