Hello, I am new here and this is my first attempt at building a computer in the future. $1,100 is about my budget with a 20 $ variation. Here is my list :

Are there any issues here? I would like to get a ATX Full case to upgrade in the future.

Will this case fit my CPU cooler and my GPU? Any advice?

Thank you so much!!

I'd dump the ssd and get a 770 instead you'll have way better performance. Get the sad when you wanna upgrade down the road. Its better than being stuck with a 760 and wanting upgrade.

Best solution

if you want to stay below $1100,
drop the SSD
and get moderate PSU
