Additional Comments: Looking for advice on a new build. Not trying to make it super fancy. Just want to upgrade from my old prebuilt pc and get the experience to build a pc myself for the future.
After looking around and reading up on pc components picked out this build. Looking for any advice on my current build. Trying to stay around 900USD and hoping that after building my first pc I can tweak it yearly. If you have any different recommendations or feel that I have overlooked anything or gone excessive on a certain part, please advise me. Within this build are 2 combo(CPU/MB and PSU/HD) deals saving me 26USD
Thanks for the recommendations. I'm pretty much set to keep a few of those items on my list, but I am interested on my motherboard now since you both recommended a different one. I truly don't plan to CF 2 GPUs so not sure if I should change it;
1)but if there anything wrong with the mobo I picked out, aside from CF?
Redid a few options so hopefully you, or anyone else viewing, can verify everything is ok/compatible. Think I'll change the OD to something cheaper, maybe with free shipping. Not really liking the idea of paying $7 to ship it.
1)Changed PSU again to a cheaper rosewill 80+ 630W and hoping that change is ok
2)Changed motherboard to the ASrock you had suggested. (thanks batuchka)
3)Picked up that combo you had with CPU/GPU earlier and only concern is that since this will be my first build that the case might be a bit small for it.
