I'm building a new PC computer for gaming and I just want a few opinions on how to get the best performance possible. When it comes to putting a computer together I don't have an idea on what parts are compatible with what! Just have a few questions! Is my ram the most compatible? Also is XFX a reliable brand? I choose this card because someone else told me they liked it, but I am up for suggestions. Also is this case good or can someone suggest another type? I am open for suggestions on changing something out. Thanks a lot!

Are you planning to overclock? If not, get a cheaper i5 and get a faster graphics card. Check my sig.

Sorry I forgot to include that. But yes I did plan on over clocking in the future not right when I get the computer though. I'll take a look at your sig
