I am not OP, but, yes. Add tax and shipping + import fee if you are shipping it to a country that is not USA.

You must be my long-lost brother! Will spend 20+ hours on researching and building a PC tower, but will not spend an hour cleaning up the house.

Everything looks beautiful. How is the H110i GT? Do you have it in Pull or Push.

Man, this thing is a mess in parts and it is even more horrendous once put together. Whoever recommended you to buy that $600 i7/MOBO combo for your gaming build should be on your list of enemies.

Hi, I am a Nigerian Prince. I will write you a $20,000.00 check to buy this PC, but you need to send me back $10,000.00 via Western Union. Seeing that you are too lazy to even post a decent picture of what you want to sell, you don't even have to send me the PC, just the $10,000.00 via Western Union is fine. Bobsled!

This build belongs in the "Build Guide" section. Love the fanless, wireless, cordless PSU!

The Green Dragon is the best looking part of your build! Pick up the XFX R9 295x2 for the same price as those 970x2, but water cooled and higher performance. I would probably go with a better case. Since this is a fake build, your thread will likely be delete soon.

How is the XFX graphic card? I want to buy it sooo bad, but the reviews do not look good.

I have it in my current gaming build. It keeps my i5-4670k OC'ed at 4.5 GHz under 67 degree stress test. I bought it mainly because I am cheap, lol, and wanted to keep my total cost under $2k. The only downside to it is that you cannot control the pump speed. The pump will run at 2200+ RPM ALL THE TIME! You won't be able to game at 1 AM without getting nag by your gf/wife. The loud pump noise is the only reason I am replacing it with a Noctua DH-D15

Beautiful, and quality parts too. Seems a little bit strange that with a full tower case and $5k+ budget and you picked the H100i AIO cooler. Most of us pick it because we want an to save a few bucks on an AIO cooler.

Hi, I have the same case, but with taller RAM. Can you tell me how close does the Noctua NH-D15 come to touching the side fan? Thank you.

With a full tower and 1000w, I would have gone with: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-100360sr to save $400. With 2 x 980, I think most people will agree that the: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seasonic-power-supply-ss760xp2 is more than enough. I am obsessed with the 760w Platinum, I have it in 3 of my builds, complete silence! On the other hand, you have enough power and space for a custom water loop.

Monitor: There are better monitor at that price range. If you want a gaming monitor, try to go for 144HZ with lower response time. This one was recently on sale for cheaper because of the Paypal $25 off on $200: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-vg248qe I game at 1440 and I find it is impossible to go back to 1080, but it is a personal preference.

Optical Drive: Not much to comment here. If you watch or burn DVDs, then buy this. If not, then don't. Use a USB drive to install your OS if you don't need a DVD drive. I hardly every use my DVD writer.

Power Supply: my 7 year-old AMD system is still using the original Corsair 650w, so I really like Corsair PSU. 430W seems a bit small, there isn't much room for wiggle. You may want to pick something a bit more powerful so you can overclock. Use a Power Supply calculator to determine the size you need, and go with a good brand because a bad PSU can kill everything in your PC. http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

CASE: This is a huge personal decision because you have to look at it everyday. Pick what you like, and don't be cheap with it, because you will look at it EVERYDAY, and it's the first thing people notice when you show them your PC.

Video Card: From everything I have read, the 970 is great. EVGA is a great brand. I have no experience with the EVGA 970, so I have no comment here.

Memory: http://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/1349-ram-how-dual-channel-works-vs-single-channel If you only want 8GB, then you should go with (1x8GB). I recommend 16GB, but if you don't have the money for it, then 8GB should be good for gaming.

Motherboard: The MB that you picked is expensive because it has 3 PCI express 3.0 x 16. It will allow you to run 3 graphic cards in crossfire/sli. If you don't envision yourself to ever run 3 graphic cards, I recommend something cheaper. This is currently $91 and it looks good: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-z97ssliplus MB is personalized for everybody brand/color/etc, so it really is up to you.

CPU Cooler: I have the CM 212 Evo on my AMD system that I built 7 years ago. The system still runs great, and the cooler still works great. However, if you want to overclock your CPU to 4.5-4.7gHz, and don't mind having a huge block of metal in your case, then I recommend The Noctua NH-D15. It is as good a CPU cooler as you can get. It is better than water coolers in that you won't have to worry about water leakage, and there is no water pump to fail. It is just a block of metal with Noctua fans that have 7 years warranty. It could probably last you 20 years if you clean it once a while. The draw back is that it is HUGE!!! With ugly Noctua color fans. It may not fit in your case, and it may even block the 1st Dimm slot on your Motherboard.

CPU: When you build your own PC, you have to pick the unlocked CPU because, soon or later, you will have to/want to learn to overclock. Pick the i5-4690K. This maybe the best time to buy this at Tigerdirect.com because of the $40 off I linked above.

I am a trained Biochemist who retired at the beginning of this year at the age of 35. After almost a year of traveling and eating all over, I came to the realization that retirement is really overrated. I only picked up PC building as part of my "learn-something-new-every-month project", so my advices should be taken with a grain of salt. The best part of building your own PC is that you can pick and choose the parts that go into your PC, and you can wait for the prices to drop on the parts that you want to buy. Use the Price history chart, and don't buy any part that isn't at the lowest price. Currently, Tigerdirect.com have a $20 off promo if you order over $100, and another $20 off if you use visa check out. http://slickdeals.net/f/7515676-20-off-100-purchase-w-mail-in-rebate-tigerdirect-com

+1 I touched myself while looking at this beautiful build. On the last picture, is that a window? How did your mom put a window in her basement? My mom told me it couldn't be done.

"One game at a time!"

Seems like a pretty good rule for gaming machine. Putting a i7-5960x into a gaming machine is like buying the most expensive Land Rover to drive around Manhattan.

If money is not a factor, then the people buying i7-5960x for their gaming machine would be putting in at least 2x GTX 980, if not 4x, which still satisfy the rule.

You can pick up a 120gb SSD for $60 or less, but it will be a huge improvement. Also, please don't put the tower on carpet floor.

I think automatic overclocking is a really bad idea when you OC'ed it by 50%. I don't know anything about the G3258, but 1.5V seems really high, especially when you have it in adaptive mode; I am assuming you did not set the perimeter because this is your first time. I also don't see a liquid cooler for the video card in the list. The NZXT g10 need to be connect to a compatible liquid cooler, otherwise it doesn't really improve anything. Need more pictures.

Newly created screen name. $5k build with 1 picture, where the picture of the monitor is not the same as the one in the list. Fake/dream build?

Very nicely done. I wanted to do this, but then I saw the price of Asus 295x2 is only $999. +1 and thanks for sharing.
