If I were building an X99 rig, I'd probably go this route.......many of the parts are the same as what you listed, with just a few different choices.

I wouldn't trust a PSU that has had components replaced by anyone except the manufacturer. If it's under warranty and it fails, or acts hinky in any way, send it back for repair.....if not, time for...

Buying a quality PSU, and one closer in wattage to your actual needs are more important than those ratings

I wouldn't buy that drive because you think it's going last longer , pretty much any top notch drive you buy today will typically last far longer than you are likely to want to keep it .

There is suppose to be a slight speed increase with the 850 Pro, but probably not a nickels worth to be honest. The 850 Pro, however, will last you until you get tired of it........it has a...

I do like the look of my Z77 Sabertooth, but more importantly it's been an absolute rock solid board. Unless they mess around with them in the future, I'll probably always go with a Sabertooth...

What I meant was, in a desktop environment, where it's not the main drive and not plugged up via USB adapter. SSD's don't usually work well hooked up with a USB adapter.

When you plug them directly up via SATA data/power connectors does anything happen? Does Windows recognize them, etc?

Yes, 2 GTX 970's will run triple 1080p displays, doesn't matter the screen size. I'd look into 23/24" displays because of the pixel density I mentioned. If I were going to step up to 27" I'd get...

I was under the impression AMD's across the board were hotter by nature than Intel chips. More power efficient, lower TDP, less heat output, etc.

23/24" displays will give you a little better picture quality @ 1080p than 27" monitors because of the pixel density. I only mention this if you are more interested in picture quality over screen...

I'd skip the 700 series now that the GTX 980's and 970's are out. Also, like essenbe said, get a Z97 motherboard if you plan on overclocking a K series CPU. Oh, and yeah......an SSD is a must have...

The 512GB 850 can probably handle 100's of PetaBytes worth of data written to it without breaking a sweat......another selling point.
