Hey, I'm working on my first ever build, mostly for gaming and if I ever get time maybe even video editing. I know it isn't full but I already have a power supply and was hoping for suggestions for a video card. I'm looking to play League of legends/Dota type games and wondering if this will cut it. (Also if there any suggestions for cheaper parts that run the same, and all that) I don't want to spend that much on anything other than my CPU, and I wont be overclocking.

I wouldn't recommend you Velociraptor drive, one HDD+SSD will be a lot better.
