Thanks, I was looking for a smaller HDD. But as far as cooling goes, I think I'm gonna stick with the corsiar cooler. And I do like the EVGA card aesthetically, but how is the cooling on it? (vs the gigabyte version) Mainly cause I don't plan on using additional fans other than the ones included.

Nope, currently using a K70 RGB and a chroma deathadder.

But whats your input on the EVGA 1070 SC vs the gigabyte card I have in the build?

Ahh okay.

Also, I mentioned before repurposing an SSD of mine, however, I'm not sure if the required cords would come included as a spare of the sort with everything else. In the "Excellent build", I didn't see that any other parts were ordered with the SSD for hooking it up. So, should I be safe or are there additional cords I need to order?

Also, as far as the power supply is 750w too much? I may consider doing an sli set up so would the extra wattage be safer to go with? (rather than the original 550w)

Thanks again.

Ahhh thanks, just wasn't sure where to go.

Only reason I'm using it is because I have it at the moment as an external drive and I'm planning on repurposing it. But thanks for the input.

Well, maybe not as much as you're implying. However, I figured it be best to just be prepared for the future, but at the same time not get too much ahead of myself.

Mainly gaming, but I plan on doing editing at some point in time.

I love the build and am planning on building this within the next few months as a first custom pc, but I'm really big on aesthetics and the minimal RGB lighting on the GPU isn't really tickling my fancy. Is there any else I can do to make the most of the side panel on case? (fans, ram, etc. lighting)

Also, I see people talking about the power supply and how it may not be able to get you the most out of the GPU. What would be the next best thing if that's the case? And, I plan on bumping the system to an i7 6700k, but is there anything else that may be upgraded as well so that I may get the most of everything?
