The PSU you chose really is a big no no, try to get something more reliable.

Just don't buy a GTX 970 right now, it really isn't worth the money. Either wait for Polaris or get one of the Pascal cards that just released.

    None. You really shouldn't do it, since Haswell is a dual channel processor. You won't see any performance improvements if you use more than two sticks of RAM. However, using four sticks of RAM would put slightly more strain on your memory controller which could potentially shorten the longevity of your components.

    First Gaming Build

    The GTX 960 is a really poor choice compared to the R9 390. Castdeath97's, Aeroldor's and my build would all be significantly better choices. Just take a look at this.

The Adata SP550 is a solid budget SSD and the PSU is also pretty good. If your mother was willing to spend a little bit more, I'd get a better mouse, preferably a Zowie, since precise mice are what you really want for CS:GO.

Don't get a locked CPU with a Z170 board and avoid lower end EVGA PSUs. Get the G2/GS/GQ/P2 series instead.

    Your PSU will barely break a sweat even if you overclocked your system to the absolute max, and your CPU will definitely not bottleneck your graphics card. However, you should definitely consider an R9 390 instead of the GTX 970 as it will offer slightly better performance and more than double the VRAM. You should also get an SSD as it will improve the responiveness of your system in day to day tasks quite dramatically.

    Mindfactory.de / promo

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it is. At least it was the last time I ordered a few parts there some time ago. Edit: As far as I remember you won't have to select anything. The shipping will be for free automatically.

    need help decide

    I think a gaming system for $ 700 would pull around 250 Watts from the wall under a typical gaming load. If you're paying 15 cents per kW you'd be paying less than 4 cents per hour of gaming in terms of electricity.
  15. I'd go for a dual rad. You might consider the Silverstone TD02-E. While it does perform slightly worse than the H100i it's really quiet and costs less.
