Additional Comments: Would like to overclock to 4.5 - 4.7 while still being quiet and cool). I want to max out graphics on games and still have a steady fps from 60+ . Most of the stuff is from Canada computers since I want to just head in, get the stuff, and head out. But i've been searching around and there are other stores which can provide me the same parts at a matching price. Just need input on the build ( maybe things i can change to help performance)

For gaming you should go with a WD Blue hard drive. They are faster than the greens. If it was just for general use like web browsing, e-mail, other basic use green would be fine, but I wouldnt use it for games
