    Indeed 10 years is certianly a long time. The system you have put together will make a kickass gaming rig. There are a few things I'd change but since you've ordered already, there's nothing to do. If you can cancel some of the items, we can allocate the extra funds to other aspects like get better RAM or a more powerful GPU.

    As far as the GTX 960 goes, it will do fine in modern games on 1080p. You're looking at around 40FPS to 60FPS at Ultra settings depending on which games. If you sacrifice the eye candy, you should do 60FPS+ easily.

    I said screw it. I bought the set you recommended. Hopefully wife doesn't kill me. I have now ordered $230 I have to return. V.v at least I'm only losing $16 shipping max.

    Thank you for the assistance.

    What do you recommend for 120mm radiator fans only thing left that I want good quality parts for. I was looking at corsairs performance but I'm not familiar with whether I need push pull or static fans.

    As for GPU, 960 is best I can afford. I was going to settle for less but I used hwcompare to find a price point I can work with. Compared to a 9600 gt 1gb I think I'll be more than happy. Until I can shell out money for a decent 780 to or etc.

    For your radiator you want to use high static pressure fans and for the best cooling push/pull would be the way to go.

    You're putting way too much focus on CPU power.

    If you're just gaming and doing some video recording and light programming on your machine, you should pour that money into a better GPU and monitor instead.

    The monitor is pre existing. I am not hardcore in gaming but I wanted a solid base, the CPU is the 5820, only 28 pcie lanes compared to the 5930 or 5960 which are 40 lanes but also $200 and $600 more. I wanted a base that will last ten years. This is what j consider the best balanced next gen based system. I understand j could have saved about $300 on mobo ram and CPU by stocking to x97 however this x99 allows me to expand whether its next year or 5 years down the road. Keep in mind I was playing with 2 9600 gets and 5gb mixed 800mhz ram. No matter what I'm going to be ecstatic with this build. I could have bought a baseline CPU cooler like corsair h100 for $100 but I wanted something expandable. Soni invested in ek liquid cooling and a large xspc radiator.
