  1. That seems great! I can't see anything that i would change about it other than the DVD drive (which is all personal choice). You could go for a cheaper board if you are one a tight budget but otherwise its perfect!
    Good luck with the build!
  2. Parts are great, but as it is a gaming PC, I would advise you to go with a better GPU, you can get a cheaper mobo and 8 GB RAM. Aslo, get a separate case and separate psu. Tell us yor budget and we may be able to suggest an overall faster build.
