Very nice. Coupla questions. Why the I7-4790? Without the K, the cpu is locked and you can't overclock it now or down the road if you wanted to. No liquid cooling? Might not want to overclock anyway.

And why the 970 instead of the GTX-980 GPU?

I generally dont overclock anyway, as im not really up to date on the ins and out. I've got liquid cooling onboard, im just not sure as to the cooling system as of yet. gtx 970 basically because the shop wants to charge 250$ extra for that card. I've got a nearly new gtx 660 ti in my current system. Was thinking about chucking that in aswell. I'll clarify the cooling system. Is there anything to be cautious with? I've not cashed out as of yet.

why 16 GB ram?

its simply over the top waste of money, unless you do heavy 3D modelling or something?

Gamewise, you get nothing out of 16 GB's

I got the 16gb of ram for the same price as 8gb this week as the shop had a special on items if the system was ordered before friday . I do alot of video editing for weddings etc aswell. Don't know if thatd help. If i was paying for it then I'd be ott? Cool man, im sure they maybe marking up somewhere.

I would tend to like the 980 to last a little longer. GPU will likely need to be replaced first down the road. I tend to get the best GPU I can in a new rig but the 970 is still a great card.

I'm not so sure about that power supply if you're considering adding that 660 ti card in the build. Gonna use it as a dedicated Phys-X card? Would they give you a 750w for about the same if you asked? Tell 'em it's a deal-breaker.

What about hard drives? Platter or solid state?
