Hey everyone,

I'm doing my first build (Budget of $3,000) and this is the list that I have so far. Would anyone be able to take a look at this and tell me if this all matches up well? Or just give me general opinions, constructive criticism or any other comments(i.e. regarding power and voltage issues, etc)? This build is for a high end gaming/editing pc. Would appreciate any and all input. THANK YOU!

That is a very good build! There are a few things I'd recommend against though!

Get the 900D instead of the 800D, the 900D is a wonderful case with lots of room and options.

Razer Black-Widow has a high defective/faulty rate with customers from what I've seen. Get a Corsair mechanical keyboard; solid products.

Get an EVGA 780: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

These are great case fans too: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Series-Performance-Editio...

Everything else looks solid.
