Hello,

I am building a comp for Final Fantasy XIV, but figured I'd put a bit extra performance just in case I find some fps I'd like to play.

I was planning to go with the following build. If you feel I have parts that are mismatched, or are not worth it, or should be upgraded, please let me know!

Thank you!
