    You'll be fine in War thunder as I get a rough of 200 fps + just with a 760

    Yeah, you're right xD It's a little bit overkill for War Thunder but I wanna play new titles aswell :) Like Crysis, Hitman, GTA, Witcher 3 and so on :)

    Looks good to me. If you can, I would suggest a bit more of a beefy PSU but I think you should be fine. The 970 is a great card.

    I got some severe decision agony over this build(as i often get :P ) and now I've changed the build up a little. Now I'm certain the motherboard is solid and it's all bought from the same retailer :)

    Det ser riktigt grymt ut! Den där kommer inte behövas uppgraderas på ett bra tag! :D Hur lång tid kommer det ta att bygga den?

    Den blir awesome! Jag beställde grejjerna idag och får dem kanske på Onsdag-Fredag hoppas jag. När jag väl fått hem allt så sätter jag samman allt på en timme och hoppas att windowslicensen kommer fungera.. Annars må jag köpa det med :P

    When I saw "Is it balanced" I could not help but think of some poor sod balancing a rig on a window still wondering if it will stay there....

    Assuming your OC'ing otherwise the is no point in getting the K series of intel chips, (& you should OC, its as easy as piss nowadays)

    970's, generally the MSI one tends to be people's go to as it scored best in tests, but I believe the difference is not great between the redistributiors variances

    The build is generally not too dis-similar to the build I was wanted a while ago (didnt get it, brought a dremel & MIG welder instead :D )

    Also you have a normally HDD to supplement your SDD?

    If you want 100% confidence, or as near as you can get without doing the leg work yourself (not too hard to do, just takes time) using a site like http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/ will allow you to pick the parts & it will only show compatible parts unless you select a check box otherwise. (did it for you - N.B. case is black not red, but colours dont make a difference, ignore price as its in UK, not issues found http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/GWM9mG)

    Also noticed you dont have a CPU cooler on your list - you have one already or planning on using stock (make sure the chip isnt oem) - maybe it is in the bundle? If you do want to OC spend 23 quid (or equivalent) and get an after-market cooler (23 quid as that is the price of the go-to after-market cooler for i5-4690K's just cant remember what it is atm)

    edit for typo

    edit 2; Realised you have already ordered it, but thought would let you know that it should all work fine, but might want/need after-market cooler.
    Also boot times on SSD's are crazy (mine is 8s from power to windows login, another 2 after password to it is ready, with an 840 evo)

    Haha :D I never thought it would be interpreted like that xD

    Got it all today! :) Yeah! :) There was a discount for the 970 G1 model so I went with that one. Some say I should've gone with the R9 390 card but I think it's more reliable to go with Nvidia, but not too sure xD

    Haha! a Dremel and a MIG are both very useful so I guess you don't regret it.. too much!

    When the time of "should've went with a bigger ssd" comes I will pop in an HDD laying around ;)

    Oh :) Didn't know Pcpartpicker matched it for ya. Will use that next time! and thanks for ensuring me :D

    I will get a cooler later on when I feel like the need for speed, until then, a minor OC will do ^^

    First time having an SSD, kinda exited! I'll build it all together tomorrow!!

    As a ATI fan boy for near a decade I can hands down say you should go for the 970, ATI's drivers are beyond a joke most of the time. I am still running drivers from a few years ago, they work better than anything they have released since.
