After talking for a bit the scope of this build has changed; it's no longer a tentative upgrade build but instead an entry level gaming rig primarily for League of Legends.

As such, the i7-2700K is heavily overkill and I will be using a much cheaper Core i5-2400.

Posted Image
i5-2400 in the socket, this is both a step down from an i7 and also not a K (overclockable) one so its desirability as a gaming CPU is lower. However, for games with low performance requirements it's more than enough; League runs at around 100fps with max settings when paired with a dedicated GPU.

The GPU of choice is an Asus GTX 950 Strix. A few changes since the last photo set include the power supply and water cooling for cheaper units.

Posted Image
Even though it's not as big as its flagship brothers, the Strix heatsink and fans still look good

Posted Image
Another request for this PC was for it to fit in a green color scheme, so I swapped out the power/hdd access LEDs

Posted Image
Replaced them with 5mm green ones

...and also swapped out the LEDs on the WNIC as well to match. These were 3mm ones soldered straight to the board.

I finished up this build and it's sold. Future upgrades may include LED fans and/or a case swap, but for the time being this PC is complete.
