Hey yall. Been lurking around again the past month, but you helped me out with my last build ages ago, and I'm back for more. http://www.staredit.net/topic/11997/

I'm looking to spend around $1500. I already have a good monitor and video card I'll be bringing over
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NNXVPS2?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M8E0K06?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00
So all I've done so far is look at tom's hardware, and picked everything on their "Best of" lists for October.

CPU - Intel Core i7-5820K http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MMLXIKY/?tag=bom_tomshardware-20&ascsubtag=[site|thaus[cat|[art|[pid|B00MMLXIKY[tid|14468399381035500[bbc|LEPRIX
Motherboard - I don't even know. Used to AMD, but not sure what I'm compatible with to pick off of tom's list.
Case - I had a mid, wanna try a full. I really want plenty of usb3.0 ports in the front now though.
GFX - Already got one see above. I might by another for dual monitors though. They have to be the same right?
Mouse and keybaord - Already got. Razor deathAdder 2013 and BLack widow ultimate. I kinda regret these purchases.
RAM- Mushkin Enhanced Redline 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 2133 (PC3 17000) dont really understand how this ddr3 is at ddr4 speeds, but ok? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EJFFFFC/?tag=bom_tomshardware-20&ascsubtag=[site|thaus[cat|[art|[pid|4846[tid|14468475954278134[bbc|LEPRIX
I'm also looking for something to easily stream stuff from my computer to my big screen TV.
SSD - SanDisk Extreme PRO 240GB. I'm partial to my samsung PRO, but Tom says otherwise. http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Extreme-2-5-Inch-Warranty-SDSSDXPS-240G-G25/dp/B00KHRYRNM
I'll probably buy another slower one around 1TB. Don't even think I need a HDD anymore.

Hope Vrael doesn't mind.

Just over your budget, but you can wait for deals to keep yourself within your budget, or just decide you don't need the 950 Pro.

CPU: A solid i5 is what you need for a gaming rig, whereas an i7 is going to give you high parallelism for tasks like rendering. I built for the former. 6600K vs 5820K.
HSF: If you're looking for entry-level overclocking, this is the best deal right now. The Pure Rock is usually around $30+, so if you had to grab one part right now, I'd pick this.
Mobo: Everyone loves Gigabyte boards. It has three eSATA ports, so using the M.2 still leaves you with two.
RAM: All you need is something that works; anything else is bragging rights. 16GB is probably more than you need, but if it's what you want, you can have it.
SSD (1): If you want fast, you want the 950 Pro, released last month. Comparison against the Sandisk Extreme Pro 240GB.
SSD (2): The 850 EVO is an economical and fast drive. If you want to save a bit more money, take the Crucial BX100, which is another excellent SSD.
Case: If you really want a full tower, the Enthoo Pro is probably a good place to start. Highly rated and relatively affordable; you could do basically anything you want inside this case.
PSU: It's a Seasonic OEM, and large enough to comfortably handle two GTX 970s in SLI at an efficient load. Full modular, gold, yadda yadda. It's good.
Monitor: For aesthetics, just grab another monitor of what you already have. You can run them both off of a single GTX 970.

The sword and the faith

First of all, I'm extremely disappointed in you CAFG. Tom's has been bought and paid for for years. Never trust a word. You want reliable truthful info? Anandtech, Hardwaresecrets, and JonnyGuru. By listening to Toms you have proven you know even less than you think you do. Good job.

Second, clean up your post it looks like you face-rolled on your keyboard.

GPU is fine, good pick on that monitor, I'll be buying the 27" / 1440p version.

Next, a better build:

CPU: i5 better for gaming. i7 better for not gaming. Shut up.
Cooler: K series needs more MHz. More heat. Shut up.
Mobo: Krait is solid board for good price. Nice layout. Pretty. Shut up.
RAM: Cheap, reliable, not strange brand like Roys. Maybe pick Patriot if you want colors to match better. Shut up.
Storage: Fuck Toms and fuck their Sandisk. Pro SSD is best SSD. Also WD EZEX 1TBs are super cheap and fast for a storage drive. Now shut up.
Case: Full, black, window, USB3. Shut up.
PSU: Its a SeaSonic the fuck do you expect me to put here? Shut up.
Monitor: Get another one and shut up.

Notes: Shut up. Don't counter. Don't argue. You have no idea what you're doing. Do as you're told.

I like how CAFG has 1 GB of SSD storage. How are you installing windows on that?

The cpu I basically did. I had more money and just bumped it up what they suggested to the i7(which was suggested in another of their build pc topics)
MOBO - guilty. But only because they didn't reccomend with m.2 storage in mind.
RAM - meh. after look at ram OCing, I decided that I didn't care about that, and to just get the cheapest 16GB I could.
