    First ever gaming build, need suggestions.

    Thanks for the input guys was really helpful. Computer Ed I will be gaming on a standard 1080 TV at first but after my wallet recovers from the build I intent to invest in a 2560x1440 or a 2560x1600 monitor and in future perhaps a multi display setup. I have more or less just tried to setup a computer that will last as long as possible and have more grunt than I need in case I want to do more in the future, which is also why I have chosen parts with (by all accounts) great overclocking potential. day to day performance vs cost is not so incredibly important to me as I am more than willing to sink a tonne of money into this project. Both you and d6bmg mentioned the power supply but were conflicting. Is there an equation or anything I can use to accurately determine the amount of power I am going to need? Thanks again, being new to this is quite overwhelming, I thought I was relatively computer savvy. Then I started researching this and it just makes me realise how clueless I am lol.

    Have switched the PSU out with a 1000W supply and changed the cooler to a Noctua NH-D14 also swapped the processor out with an i5 seeing as the i7 is over specced
