Project - Dark Sunrise Panda

PandaCopyRight

This is my 1st computer build so i can learn a lot from this and if you guys and girls have any tips on what i should do or get you can say it ... i don't bite :)

Also since I'm just 17 and don't have a full time job it's kinda difficult for me to finish the build quickly but I'm trying what i can do.

My aim with this build is to make a build that can stream games (using Intel and Nvidia parts) with the color scheme of the motherboard mainly (btw my fav color is green so this will be fun :/), which was gifted to me for Christmas by my dad, and to make it near silent and the most important part ... have fun doing it and have fun with the computer.
The name of the build came from the color scheme and my favorite animal :) 

Color scheme so far is Mostly red and black but adding some yellow and orange slowly

So this is my build so far:
>CPU: Intel Core i7 4790K (stock for now)
>Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO 
>GPU: Asus GTX 960 2GB Strix OC 
>Case: NZXT S340 Red and Black version

Cooling: Noctua NH-D15 (might go custom watercooling once i need to upgrade my cpu and motherboard)

Cables: at some point custom red and black sleeved cables

first, upgrade the PSU, because thats the most vital part in your build, if it burns it will destroy every part in your PC with it, I recommend checking this tier list of PSU's 

http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/406160-psu-ranking-and-tiers/

 

second to be different, just use different colors, something that you wont get bored of, I personally chose white, neon green and a UV LED strip, I don't see a lot of builds that are similar, also I have a very modable case, an Air 240, which I'll be modding to make it even more unique.

To me yeah its bad, because its not well known, also 650w should be more than enough for your build.

oke ill keep that in mind but for now i think im not gonna upgrade to a higher quality psu.

also would 650w be enough for a 2nd 960 in the future or something? yes i know the term futureproof is not a good term .. but i at least want to be able to add a 2nd card in case i need more gpu power and cant afford a better single card solution

650W will be more than enough for 2 960s, you could SLI 980s with 650w
