Have a card already. Will switch to on board on my current build and put my Nvidia GTX 680 in this one.

Apart from the case (just not my style) I like the build, I was looking at that mobo this week because of the ASUS thunderbolt 2 add-on card.

I can't believe that case is still that much. I have the regular, black version of it, and I still love it two years later.  (Y)

Nice choices for your build.

 

My recommendations/changes would be:

 

PSU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139010&ignorebbr=1     with a rebate and free shipping.

 

Memory - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231623&ignorebbr=1      faster and I am partial to G.Skill -  never had a failure.

 

Though any of your picks would make for a great machine.

You seem to of picked a Internal Solid State Drive that requires and Motherboard with a M.2 PCIe connector like this one.

His motherboard choice does have the M.2 connector.  The Asus supports module lengths of 80 and 60 mm and the Gigabyte modules of 80, 60, 42 mm.

The motherboards offer nearly the same feature set, the Gigabyte is the cheaper and would be an excellent choice also.   I was a diehard Gigabyte user, but recently went with an ASRock and have been very pleased with the performance, features and quality.

The EVGA motherboard has the m2 pcie connector plus it doesnt have the onboard VGA, DVI connectors which you arent using anyway, it comes with 2 HDMI ports which in my opinion are better if you are using your own video card.

Understandable, the connector doesn't really stand out and it's way down on the features list, too.    :)

You should look at microcenter.com. You will get the same hardware at a better price.

Thanks for all the advice guys.. I think i'll change the case to a black one (unless some one wants to give me advice on a particular case) but i'll be changing the motherboard to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128714.

 

Thank you for the suggestion Raze.
