This build is strictly AMD, so I am not planning on changing major components (the Intel build I had in mind cost a few hundred dollars more, but I would say this build offers better performance for the price). It is a black and red scheme as well. So, what are your thought and opinions? I do not plan on changing anything (I have OCD, so changing something, such as brands, will bother me).
@sadams04 I started looking for an Intel/Nvidia build now. I'm going to buy several components now which are at my price point, and buy the other not-so-essential components later (I'll reuse a few parts I have lying around until I save up a bit more). Thanks for the help everyone!
