got the parts as they come on sale starting when i got the evga power supply last October. Finally got to build it 2 days ago and got it to post on first try.
waiting on gtx 970 (looking at either evga ftw acx 2.0 or asus strix) prices to settle down a bit so i can sli them or a single 2x 295x for hopefully sub-600 :)
when i get to that, i will probably update the cabling for a cleaner look.
note: benq monitor, logitech 710+ kb and g430 headphones carried over from previous set-up.
edit: no longer going for nvidia coz of their 3.5gb issue on the 970. shame on nvidia
