Hello all,

Post is regarding my first build I will be work on in the upcoming weeks. I was originally going to get someone to build it for me, but i realized its much cheaper and
will be a learning experience for me if I build it myself. Let me know what you think. All these components come to around $2700 which is the max ill go. This all comes from amazon. I compared the price to Newegg, which was surprisingly more expensive. Also since this is my first build, (Stupid Question) would I need any more cables/wires etc. to add? I know most of the components come with it already, but thought I'd ask. Thanks ahead!

There's a lot that you could get rid of if you'll just be gaming on it. You really don't need the i7 extreme or 16GB of RAM. Also, why the NAS hard drive? They are more expensive because they are designed for use in servers.

Well with the parts I could downgrade, I would probably get in the future upon upgrading so I rather get them now then later. :)  On the Hard drive, what do you think would work? Sorry didn't realize it was for servers : /

You can use the NAS because it's backwards compatible with SATA, but it'll just be more expensive for you unless you get a good deal on the WD Red.

Here's a WD Blue with 2TB storage.
