Just wanted to see how I did for my first time build. Will be used for mild gaming, movies, and CAD type work.
Cost me roughly 1300 total.

Also picked up a DeathAdder mouse for like $15 and have just a generic keyboard for now.

Does this all look good for moderate gaming or is there anything I should change or add?

Also what is a good gaming keyboard?

Besides the PSU not being great its a nice build. The Sidewinder keyboard is awesome for only $55.
