I've never built my own pc before, but there is a good chance that I'm going to give it a shot. It's either that or buy an Origin Genesis. I save ~$1K building myself. Anyway, I was wondering if you could review my part list just to make sure everything is cool compatibility wise. Also open to any suggestions you may have.

i thought i read somewhere that the crucial ssd was the fastest available. It is also a SATA 6 drive. I play poker professionally, and that is what i'll primarily use the machine for (however, i have a degree in computer science, so i'll def be doing some software development as well). The entire system is overkill for sure, but i've been waiting a long time to do it, and i'm sort of a geek, so technology excites me
i currently have a dual monitor set up - a 24in and a 22in. the 24 inch resolution is 1900x1200, the other is 1680x1250. the 24 inch will prob be upgraded to a 30in in the near future.
also, as i mentioned, I was initially going to buy from Origin. A newer company, but thus far their machines have received glowing reviews. Any thoughts on going this route?
