    I am so sorry GTej229, but i don't know why i couldn't use flash storage (also called and USB), but i think the reason is cause SSD's and HDD's are the central memory in your computer so flash storage would not be an option because you need to install the OS on an solid drive that will not be removed from the computer. (probably wrong but i am trying) also SSD's and IHD/HDD cannot be electronically modified or erased (thats what i understood about a post i read.) I wouldn't mind if someone corrects me or explained this better or right.
    @kingofguns78 would you know the reason?

    For making videos you dont need 32gb of ram, 16 is plenty. Also one SSD is enough just to store your games, programmes etc. You only need a 1-3 TB HD to store vids, A WD Caviar Black is what i use and it works great. If you are only recording minecraft this video card is a little overkill (totally ok with it tho ;3). Solid gaming PC :)

    This post is full of tech jargon, I don't understand a word of it, I'm not smart enough...

    Basically, flash storage is external storage devices (such as USB or External hard drive), these are slower than normal internal hard drives because the information has to travel further etc. Also it is very difficult, however still possible to run your operating system off a flash storage device.

    Flash memory is essentially what SSD's are made of, it is solid state memory. Standard hard disk drives (HDD's) are inherently slower because they need to read the information off of a disk then convert it to a digital signal, where as in solid state memory it is essentially already a digital signal. Electrical signals travel faster than anyone can even notice, so having a little bit of cable isn't going to make a difference. However, USB connectors do not allow for as much flow of information as most hard drive cables (SATA cables), but USB 3.0 is still decently fast. All that being said, I'd prefer a large internal SSD for memory (SSD's are made up of flash memory and tend to be connected with SATA cables).

    I don't know why not AMD I'm not too into a AMD CPU. My friend had it and my cousins have it, but i don't know....
    Isn't it cheaper too?

    If you would suggest a AMD CPU and motherboard that are better i could think of changing it. (i don't know anything about the AMD CPU's)


    I'm sorry...

    In tek syndicates benchmarks, the fx 8350 gave better fps, in most games, and out clocked your current i7, but it does give up a little performance in single threaded tasks, such as older games. Also it saves you like 100 bucks.

    here is the AMD version, @kingofguns78 this is the version i think is best for my build but if you think i should change it tell me. A quick question i noticed that the motherboard doesn't have a onboard video. But this should not affect my build cause i have my video card right?

    Use AMD graphics or Nvidia instead of useless Asus junk :p Nvidia GTX Titan Z is the best :) and the most expensive xD

    No it should not affect the build. It is up to you, it is like vanilla vs chocolate some people just prefer one.

    It is not worth that money compared to other parts that do the same.

    Correct. After a certain point the parts are not giving you as much price to improvement ratio.
