You've chosen a great SSD, but very low capacity - I think you'll quickly want more space. Either get at least a 250GB or try an SSHD instead

You've specked an overclockable CPU but no cooler for it... U need either a H100i so u can overclock, or save some cash on a non-K-series CPU.

space wise the SSD will be for the OS and a few games, everything else (games, mods, e.t.c.) will go on the other HHDs.
