    Well, you guys might start seeing me a little more often. I know i've been absent as fuck for quite some time, but i'm still around and i'm glad to see that some of you are also. I finally decided it was time to add a little recreation back into my life so except for 1 package (for the pc build itself) that should arrive tomorrow, i've received everything for the new build. My xbox360 controller usb receiver and a couple of batteries I ordered is estimated to be here next Wednesday. My build list is at http://pcpartpicker.com/p/8TVGWZ, feel free to let me know what you think. I plan on playing some steam games and downloading some other pc games. Let me know what yall are playing so I can join in!

    PC Build:
    if you are going with an i3 you could just go with a better AMD 8 core (just dont go with bulldozer).
    you may not have clearance for that GFX card on that board.
    500W PSU may be too weak.
    you can get a 4 pack of coolermaster 120mm fans for about < $14.
    Depending on the case a Cooler master GeminII may fit better than a sleeve .
    if you decide on an AMD board you may want to go with a sapphire GFX card and shave about $40-$20 off
    Arctic Thermal paste can be better & cheaper depending on what kind you need.

    maybe get a larger board (possibly AMD) and a case with cable management.

    Games:
    I mostly play on PS4 so i can gameshare & split the cost of games with a friend

    Honestly you could get better performance centered around an AMD build but that's just personal preference get a lot more bang for your buck edit looks like you already got all the stuff no sense in getting anything else unless you take the time to return everything which is a hassle nonetheless forthe amount of money you spent I would of spent the extra 100 on this bad boy http://pcpartpicker.com/b/6pwV3C not to mention it might be less removing the keyboard and gaming mouse.
