    Desktop Build

    Last thread, I promise. After seeing how much cheaper it is, I've decided to build myself. Just want to make sure these components will play nice together. Anyone wanna help out and look them over for glaring errors or oversights?

    A GTX 780 would be far and beyond a better choice for a GPU. It's cheaper, and absolutely demolishes the 290X in performance.
    In addition, is there any reason for going Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX for the Mobo and Case?
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    I thought the 290X Would be more powerful Since I made a post about the 290 or the 780 and everyone said the 290 :L

    Everyone said the 780, with BF4 being the only close one.
