Hello this is my first build. I Have done a lot of research and would like to know if what I came up with is a good build, before I purchase anything. I am trying to keep it between 1000 - 1200 if I can, and I have found most my parts at Canada Computers and Tiger Direct with a few exceptions. Please let me know what you think and any suggestions is greatly appreciated.
