What comes in the box?

How about a Cooler Master CM212 EVO.

I'd probably go with the Crucial MX100 or Intel 530 for SSD if it doesn't cost much more.

99% sure the rig listed is what he has already, and what we've discussed is what he wants to upgrade.

Totally. I mean I'd say ditch the 3570k for a 4690k, go Z97, get 840 EVO, ect ect.

Well... I don't have that much money to upgrade in one go. I'll have to upgrade from the lowest spec first.

Don't take what I'm saying the wrong way. If you currently own the parts you have now like the CPU ect then keep them. That 3570k will last you a long while. I was speaking in terms of if you were buying all parts now.

Also, if you have an Antec Truepower 450w PSU then that will be fine for the GTX 970.

To the monitor, it's not IPS but the Asus 144Hz panel. Great for gaming.

Sorry that I misread the power supply. Is the FSP groups ATX-400PNR 400watt only. Only have 1 6pin power connector
