Well, my trusty PC of 8 years has finally stopped doing what I need it to do...play games. It will surf the web fine, I can watch vids, but ANY 3d and the damn thing quits.

Here is the new build...I already purchased a 3GB Barracuda HDD ~2 months ago on sale...main goal of this build is to go 1440p and record/broadcast to Twitch and Youtube and keep everything under $2000. Also, purchased Windows 10 Pro on Amazon.

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200)...order 2 of these for 32GB RAM
Corsair Hydro Series™ H100i V2 Extreme Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm

there are a lot of different ways you could go with this build but the one thing I would personal switch is the PSU, I would go with a corsair

I was leaning Corsair for PSU as well until this EVGA went on sale...both had similar reviews for power and silence...one was on sale at the time.
