    Hi guys, it's been a very long time since I last built a computer (as you can tell by my system specs of my computer) as I have been using a laptop. But seeing as I have the funds for it now I am very excited to be building a mini atx computer! My budget is £1000 and I already have mouse and keyboard and will be getting a 1080P monitor very soon as well! Here is my final build tell me what you guys think:

    Case: BitFenix Prodigy M - http://www.shop.bt.com/products/bitfenix-prodigy-m-micro-atx-cube-dual-fan-ps2-psu-5-x-pci-usb3-black-9KFY.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=ppc product search&utm_campaign=Components and Storage - Cases, Cooling and Power - Cases

    Motherboard: Asus Maximus VII Gene Z97 - http://www.ebuyer.com/641559-asus-m...150-hdmi-8-channel-audio-matx-90mb0i30-m0eay0

    CPU: Intel Core i7 4790K - http://www.ebuyer.com/645546-intel-...1150-8mb-l3-cache-retail-boxed-bx80646i74790k

    GPU: EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 SuperClocked - http://www.ebuyer.com/509683-evga-g...cooler-2gb-gddr5-dual-dvi-hdmi-02g-p4-2774-kr

    RAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB (2X8GB) DDR3 1600MHz Dual-Channel Kit - http://www.ebuyer.com/509510-corsair-16gb-ddr3-1600mhz-vengeance-kit-intel-haswell-cmy16gx3m2a1600c9

    PSU: Corsair AX 760W Fully Modular 80+ Platinum - http://www.ebuyer.com/410042-corsair-ax-760w-fully-modular-80-platinum-power-supply-cp-9020045-uk

    Total Price: £979.39

    Also can I use this for wireless for my motherboard? Do I need antennas or do I just insert it into the mini pcie 2.0 slot and I am ready to go? http://www.uc-solutions.co.uk/produ...reless-AC-7260-Network-adapter?prodid=1427815

    Are you planning to re-use the Zalman 9900? It is a very good cooler, and keeps my 3770k temps very low on a 4.1Ghz overclock. I just haven't seen anything on how well it will cool a 4790K since they operate even higher, so it will be good to see what it's capable of!

    I think they were refering to a USB wireless adapter, like this USB 3.0 one:

    If you look around, you may be able to find different options. Another alternative is a PCI/PCIe wireless adapter, or even using Powerline adapters for an ethernet connection (however restricts mobility).

    Oh I see now, yeah I might just have to get one of them cause since I have a mini computer I want to be able to move around the house or like take it with me when sometimes I visit home and that.
