Hello, Thank you for looking at my thread.

I'm building this pc for gaming/recording game play and editing videos, I'm looking for all feedback as I'm sure there are better parts and places i can save some money to upgrade elsewhere. I'm located in Detroit, Michigan.

I also need a monitor, I'm currently on a 18" and its really small and awkward. I haven't decided if i want to go with something like a 27" or Two 20-22".
(Too stay in my budget, I just seen this on sale and might be looking to get two of them depending on the feedback i get.

My Budget is around $1,000.

there is no point of getting 2 monitors when you havent even maxed out your rig that powers them. id get this

took out all the overclocking in place for a much more powerful GPU and SSD

Thank you for the response, I like how you got rid of the overclocking, I'm not really sure how beneficial a SSD is as i have never owned one. I'm not too impatient with loading times, I like the monitor you suggested. Whats your opinion on dropping the ssd and maybe going for a better looking case and maybe a 660 ti or hd 7950?

there is a 7950 already in the build. as for the case, it should be more than fine but you could upgrade to the corsair 200R instead

SSDs make all the difference in the world. you may not think waiting is a huge deal, but when you save half a minute loading a game or booting up windows, you wont ever want to go back to a hard drive only system

Thank you for everything, I'm going with your build. The only thing i noticed is the SSD says its for a notebook, would this still work on this pc?

there is no difference. it says notebook since it has a thinner profile but that doesnt matter in a desktop anyways
