Hey everyone I'm pretty new to building my own PC and have been reading and listening to other people about the +/- of doing so and figured i'd give it a shot. I'm a big gamer and am really only looking to create a computer that will fulfill that need.

Here is a link to the specs of what I'm looking at:

I really want to make sure that the GTX 690 can handle basically anything I throw at it with this setup. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for change. Thank You.

The set-up is rock solid but honestly a GTX 690 is an absolute overkill for a single 1920x1080 monitor. A GTX 680 is more than enough for gaming. Also I would take the Samsung 840 Pro over the 830.

Okay well that seems like a justifiable change and I will be running double displays as I already have another Benq 24" RL2450HT

Okay, that makes more sense. If money's no problem then go for the GTX 690 or you can consider getting a 4GB GTX 680.
