So I am thinking of building a gaming PC in a week or so; I got all my parts picked out, and just want to see what people think. Am I missing anything, Are some parts overkill, or should I swap some things out? Thanks.
i would go with a modular or semi-modular power supply so its not a rats nest in the case.
a 120gb ssd might not be large enough (factor in that you only want to fill it to 80% capacity then subtract 30gb for os) since you will have only about 66gb useable space. the reason for the 80% is so trim and other functions work right or you shorten the lifespan of your drive. i'd get a 250gb samsung 840 evo instead. your choice.
i'd suggest a more open case like the corsair 300r over the r4. more open airflow is better for overclocking. temps will be lower.
Thanks. I did switch to a modular, no point and having tons of extra wire's. I think your right about the ssd, and will most likely go for the 250gb. I'm still shopping around for cases, was just going to see what people thought of the r4; thanks for the suggestion of the corsair 300r ill keep it in mind.
