Please give me your opinion about this build, please leave any suggestions no matter what it be. Any problems or improvement suggestions?

I have no current SSD as I sacrificed that cash for better parts, however, I will invest in an SSD in the very near future. Any suggestions for good SSD's since I'll be getting one later on?

Cheers guys :)

my recommendation

Less than $1 per gig is a steal and the drive performs very well .

may i ask outside of gaming what else will this computer do?

I7 vs I5 i mean is very little for gaming in general as the I7 have hyperthreading and the I5 doesn't you could actually move to a I5 and the performance loss would me minimal and take that cash and buy a SSD which is one of the best performance increases you can do .
