Hi, I want to get a new gaming pc but I'm having some trouble completing my list, so I would like if anyone could help me finish it.

This is what I currently have in mind, but I would need help.

It is also my first time building my own pc so I don't have a lot of knowledge about this.
I am going for good pc to run pretty much every game on max.

Also I'm not sure about gpu yet. Deciding between this two.
1) http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-n770tf2gd5o...
2) http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-03gp42784k...

Note: max I can afford right now is 1200$. No OS, display or peripherals needed.

Are you going to Overclock later on? Do you need a case as well, if so, atx or what?

Yes I need a case too.

It's the type, I'll just get you an ATX build, how much are you willing to spend on the case?

Not too much, maybe around 100$?

That is a very "game-oriented" setup with excellent overclocking potential. It may sound crazy, but the most surprisingly performance boosting component will be that SSD. If you have never used a high-end SSD before you will absolutely be amazed at the speed and performance gain that you get all across the board. Granted, I opted for a slightly faster version in the 840 Pro by Samsung, but I go from cold start to fully booted in less than 15 seconds!

Great, as long as it is fast.
If I'll need more disk space, I could still put in another hard drive or?
Also this might be "a stupid" question, but do I still need sound card and wireless/wired network adapters?
And at the end there is a compatibility notice. Is it an issue?

Yes, of course! You can add up to 5 more hard drives if I can recall. After using a high performance SSD I can't ever see being without one now. It speeds up your system like STUPID fast! LOL Your OS and frequently used files and games should go on the SSD. I suggest say a 2TB WD Black as a good "mass storage" drive. Keep movies, photos, video clips, etc. on that drive.....basically anything that you don't use on a regular basis.

You'll be very happy with that system. As I said, it is very "overclock" oriented. You can squeeze a lot of performance from it.
