    Here is my build:

    i7-5820K 6 core
    Asus X99Pro
    32gb ram ripjaws 2133
    GIGABYTE GTX 960 4gb (a little outdated i know but its not really a gaming rig)
    500gb SSD
    5Tb Hdd 7200
    Cosair H115i AIO
    Cosair750w power

    Nice setup. You have some big numbers there. Are you doing heavy duty video editing on it?

        Lol...outdated... That card will play any game out there right now on ultra settings.

        Here's my rig.

        AMD FX-8150 8 core (3.6ghz)
        Msi 970A-G46
        12GB ram
        EVGA GTA 960 4gb
        1TB and 1 500gb HD (sadly neither is SSD)
        Roswill Green Series 80plus certified 630w power supply.

                  Have fun with the new rig! I used to build my own optimized for flight sims from about '99 to '05 when the graphics cards cost more than a state of the art MB and CPU put together

                    Honestly what you have will likely last for awhile. My CPU is a bit outdated, but it's not bottlenecking me. When I was younger it seemed like you had to get a new PC every 6 months to a year to keep from getting out-dated. Now it seems like you can just do it in small chunks here and there. My CPU was originally released on 2011 (so it's 5 years old) I'm still running games like the division on full graphics with every setting cranked and not seeing any drop in FPS.

                    I'll probably have to upgrade my CPU/Mobo/ram in the next year or so, but at this point it's not anything like it was 10-15 years ago when parts were outdated soon after buying them.

                      Would you mind putting the cost down for your overall build (if not each individual piece). I've been kicking around building a new one as it's been a couple years

                        Agreed, i mean im building a "new" rig but using a chip made 2 years ago. Honestly thought about getting a i5 as that would have worked fine, but i want to this PC to last a while so i spent a little more to "future Proof" a bit, as much as you can with a PC

                          yeah i just got the graphics card and PSU last fall and i'm happy with it for a while. i don't have a SSD either like you, that's what i want to get next but it really isn't that necessary for casual gaming IMO.

                          that's also why i'm not running to build a true gaming rig.

                            Keep in mind my Budget i set was $2k, so i was pretty happy with the price i ended up with. Also already had wireless key board and mouse and monitor is my TV so didn't need those expenses. I moved those funds into extras like more ram and 6 core etc. Going intel also added $200 from cpu alone, so if you go AMD you can save more money.

                              I will state that the average gamer could save about $500 on your setup by just going to an AMD, chipset and getting a lower end Mobo. I paid probably $70 for my Mobo and probably another $80-90 for my processor.

                              Obviously we've discussed your rational behind going intel so I'm not saying at all that you did wrong in going the route you did. Just pointing it out for anyone else wanting to setup a mid-range gaming PC.
