I am currently building my gaming computer, however I just wanted to confirm that my build is well thought out and put together before I spend the money. Any input on this build would be much appreciated, thanks!

Looks good except for the SSD. Way overrated and expensive. What about a PSU? Do you have one already? If so, post make and model for feedback on it.

Go with this SSD.

The PSU needs to be higher rated and of better quality. XFX is one of the best (made by SeaSonic). Plus, like I said, the SanDisk SSD isn't worth it. 840 EVO has better performance, twice the space, and $50 cheaper.
