Hello fellow elites, I don't know how many computer enthusiasts there are here but it's been already three years since I built my current computer and today (Black Friday) I decided to check out some parts and cases. I want to build something that will look organized along with high quality.

The case that caught my attention is the Corsair Obsidian Series 350D
I saw some builds from other people on forums and they were very elegant.
I'm going to follow a red theme.My final product would look around something like this:

So far this is my cart in Newegg:
Corsair Obsidian Series 350D CC-9011029-WW Black Aluminum / Steel MicroATX Case with Window 99.99
CORSAIR AX series AX760 760W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC 149.99
ASUS MAXIMUS VI GENE LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard 209.99
Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell 3.5GHz LGA 1150 84W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I74770K 289.99
SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) 159.99

Since it's black Friday savings are totaling in at around 100 bucks!

I already have 16 GB ram so no need to get new ones, I'll also be purchasing the water cooling unit for the CPU.

I haven't made any decisions yet on the graphics card, I'll only be getting a single one as I'm not THAT into gaming.

I would love to hear your opinions! Thanks!

For watercooling system i have been using parts from ekwaterblocks and they build the best cpu/gpu blocks. I think there are plenty good reviews about them.
Else this is nice configuration but i am missing gpu. I guess you will not be using IntelHD?

EDIT: missed out. Maybe wait for AMD 8000 series.

Your computer build is great and that SSD will make it blazing fast. We are alike when it comes to choosing the graphics card, just pick a mid-range card and it should do everything you'd expect it too.

It's not a fully water cooled system. I was just thinking of buying the watercooling cpu unit:

A lot of people used it in their builds for similar builds to mine.

ok, if you are not an "extreme" overcocker than this should be enough. what is the price of this Corsair watercooling?

Yeah not planning to even overclock. This is overkill to what I really need it for but I don't care because I've always wanted to build something high performance.

It's around $100

with this conf right now that i will tell you you can play battlefield 4 on max with 60 fps on 1920x1080, low budget.

processor: intel i5 4670k
graphics card: msi GTX760 (If you spend more money u can get gtx770 and get more FPS but not needed)
motherboard: MSI z87 gd65 gaming
cooler: if you want air cooler then noctua NH-D14 if water cooling H100i
RAM: Patriot Black Mamba 1866Mhz 8gb
HDD: 1TB WesternDigital Black SATA3
SSD: 120GB Samsung

You don't need to spend money to get something better than this when you can get max speed and max fps in games with this.
If you want to play in more resolution than 1920x1080 then u need of course better graphics card.

I forgot to mention that the case uses a mini atx board
