Hi, I'll be building my first PC soon and I've chosen these parts. I'm going to be overclocking so I want to know if these parts are good for overclocking. Thanks

Much better. No CPU overclocking but new tech and MUCH better GPU. Better for gaming by ALOT.

A good PC. Im assuming you have a monitor, and some OS. Everything seems good, except the power supply. Its not from a name brand/trusted power supply maker, and when your trusting your 700 dollar computer to an unworthy power supply, you loose your 700 dollars.

Thanks a lot! I'll probably do a slight variation on this build with a different case and some other stuff.
