Can someone please check out the link to the parts I've chosen, i'm planning n building my first computer at the end of next august, are all of the parts compatible and good for gaming? I defo don't wanna change the case, it looks cool imo, and you c probably tell that I'm planning on overclocking my cpu in the near future as well. Any tips would be great, as I wanna make sure I don't mess this up and I want to keep the build as hassle free as possible

MSI isn't too bad... and they definitely have better customer support than Gigabyte in my opinion.

I've changed the motherboard due to a sort of continued theme of people saying msi isn't the best, this is probably the final build, unless you can spot any issues?

Just noticed that iceclock suggested a slight cheaper z97 mobo, can some recommend which one is better, or should I save the tenner and go with the one iceclock suggested? Not too sure how overclocking works yet, but i think the different mobo can make it wasiee, since this is my first build could you plz suggest which mobo is easier for overclocking and getting the drivers in general since I don't want too much hassle with my first build

Ah ok ill probably change to that one then, if it's a good motherboard then I prefer to save the tenner, even if it is quite a small amount
