@8bit_archer: You have the exact same rig as me, minus the watercooling because it's not needed ever, and about half the amount of RAM.

Oh and only a 2GB card, instead of the 4GB version.

Nice...yeah the RAM is the thing I'm planning on upgrading first....then a SSD...in the future sometime.

Nice rig, looks really good! 770 is a sick card

Go with an SSD first. The extra ram is only going to help you if you are using it as a work station for some sort of rendering.

Nice stuff man!

Like SuperiorArmbar says, you wont really get anything out of going higher than 8 GB ram, heck i'm still running 6.
An ssd on the other hand, is pretty sweet, i would definitely prioritize it if i were you.
Currently, i dont think you'd get anything extra by going for a 4 GB 770 either, so its not a big deal.

...... now i want a wife

Congrats dude. It's a great feeling. Really tempted to upgrade my i5 2500k and GTX 570 now but I'll wait. :(

I will definitely not be the last to say, but congratulations on your build! It is a very nice build and an ssd would be perfect because going back to a mechanical HD would just be too difficult nowadays.

Is your computer in an entry hall? I am trying to figure out the small partition your computer is in the corner of. Are there stairs behind it?

Nonetheless, congrats on the new setup.

Wow, very lucky to have a wife like that. A fantastic set of gifts.

The computer isn't too far off from what I use. Same case, CPU, a 770... I love my new PC. I'm sure you'll get a great run out of it. Congrats!
