Hi all. Really like this community. I'm about to purchase my first build, so excited!! I'd really appreciate it if you guys can screen my build and tell me if it's suitable. I live in Hong Kong so I cannot order the items online, I will be getting them at my local shop. Also, some parts has two options because I don't know which one to pick.

Purpose: I will be using this for gaming (D3/Guild Wars 2) and I want to run everything at max settings. Secondly, this will be my everyday computer.

Mission: I prioritize stability, reliability, and performance at #1. Secondly, I want the things to be quite because I have a roommate and my girlfriend HATES me playing ahahha so the quieter the build is, the less attention I gain.

Price really isn't a problem. But I don't want to spend over USD$1200. Anywhere between 800-1200 is great.
