My First Build

Hopefully this is the correct place to put this. I want to make sure that this build is all compatible and also want to here any suggestions on improving it. I will be using this build primarily for GW2 and other games, Thanks.

More about build
  1. You could go with a cheaper Z68 board since you are going with sandy bridge, but you don't have too.

    You want to get an aftermarket cooler if you plan on overclocking that i5. Get the Hyper 212 EVO, cheap and does a good job.

    Also, that video card is pretty short, but you might want to look at some reviews on that case to make sure there will be no obstructions inside.
