    Thanks! I don't know if I should keep it that way or change some part of it... If I would change it I would change the Graphics card or the CPU and motherboard. I don't need a sound card (I think). I might change the RAM to 32 GB so everything would run smoother but i'll wait and see.

    32 Gb of ram would be way overkill for all gaming, so unless you plan on doing heavy multitasking with video editing 16 gb will be fine. Also I would get an extra SSD and raid 0 them.

    If i would buy a 32GB ram and make videos it would probably need a sound card to it. Although i can start off with 16 and upgrade the RAM later on.

    I might get a extra SSD to it too.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Why the extra 120gb?

    It's the SSD (Solid State Drive). It's faster than the Internal Hard Drive (IHD and/or HDD (Hard Disk Drive/Floppy Disk) and it is more secure. it doesn't have a spinning disk inside it like the hard drive. So if i want to access files faster i might as well use the SSD instead of the IHD.
    you can read more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solid-state_drive
    As Kingofguns78 said before:
    You might as well have more than one SSD (I might). Most modern Laptops & PC's have at least one or more SSD.

    Please tell me if i answered your question or not.

    Honestly, it's a bit excessive, especially for minecraft. I'm running an i7 (Not really sure which one, but it's a few years old) on an Asus motherbord (Again, not really sure which one, but it's a few years old at least) with less RAM (8GB) and a GTX 660ti. It also has a GTX 470 that I tend to dedicate to PhysX on games that use that.
    I regularly get 300-800 FPS on all Minetime servers. It also plays every other game I have pretty well, as long as I don't turn graphics all the way up.

    To those of you who think more RAM makes everything faster - You're wrong. 8GB is the sweet spot. 16GB is good for heavy rendering or running lots of memory intensive programs.

    I would change that 4770 for the newer 4790k and get a Z97 motherboard. For the case, I would change it and not get the extra fans. As for the CPU cooler, the Arctic Silver 5 isn't necessary and the H60 isn't that good of a cooler. An extra SSD isn't worth it. Everything else is fine. Other than that, not much else I can say because you never said what you wanted to do with it or what games you wanted to play.

    Here's something I just put together on PCPP: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/872pQ7

    First off:
    Thank you for your review and the build you made. I appreciate it.
    Second off:
    I agree with the cooler i might get the H100 instead or than i am going to get Zeidon 240m (reason is my PC case supports the cooler). I still haven't got it if i am going to get a Arctic silver with the cooler or not? (this is the CPU Thermal paste)
    Third off:
    The suggestion about the newer version of the CPU and the motherboard is good. Thanks for the information on that one too. As i said in my first post i started about 1.5 years ago and that was when i chose my CPU. I have looked at different motherboards but not the actual CPU though.
    Fourth off:
    The SSD. Are you referring of getting an extra to the one i have in my build or the one i might add and do a RAID 0 to it. Cause i would like to have the SSD to install my OS to it and have some important files at quick access.

    About the fans:
    Yea i guess your right. I
    don't need the extra fans for the case I'm buying. It has enough already. Main reason why i have them is cause i had a case that looked quite cool (weasel words also my opinion) but i had like one fan at the back beside the motherboard (i think that was where it was). So i wanted more fans to it.

    EDIT: Here is the new version of the list:
    http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Feebas15/saved/yVkWGX
    If you want the written version just leave a comment.

    The fact is I'm not only going to use it for Minecraft though. If i was going to use it only for Minecraft i would not need the 16GB of RAM (i do agree that would be a bit excessive). But i was planning to use it on Games that requires higher graphics to look nice and be an enjoyment to play. (horror :p My favorite) also i would use video editing programs and recording programs while playing different games. Not saying 16GB is necessary but i think i will want that later depending on my career that I'm choosing to go to.
    Thanks for your
    review :D and personal opinion!

    Cool, have fun and don't bend any CPU pins. Or put a FireWire in a USB or vice versa.
