Hey guys this is what my planned build is. just wanted to see what you though of it.

 

Link to the build:

 thanks.

A lot of that is personal preference, but one thing that needs to be swapped out in the PSU. Never cheap out on a PSU, it is (electrically) the most important component in the system. I would grab something like this http://us.ncix.com/products/?usaffiliateid=1000031504&sku=73043&vpn=P1-650X-XXB9&manufacture=XFX&promoid=1284 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139031&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID= something along those lines.\

 

Also im not trying to say the build is bad, but there are improvements to be made here, currently working on a build.

The 290 is not meant for 1080p. Also, the fans on the H230 aren't that good. Combine that with the 290's bad stock cooler and you have a situation that's not so good.

You shouldn't be leaving the 8350 with a stock cooler.

In that case, bump up to a 990fx mobo: http://au.pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-m5a99fxpror20
