Hi, I am buiding a gaming computer for the first time and was looking for some input for a build I have put together. I have done some research but am still hesitant because this is my first build and it's a lot of money, any input is appreciated. Geared toward gaming. Thanks.

i have done hours of research and this SSD beat everything up the $200 range, take my word and my extensive research and this

i have that same video card and i extremely pleased with it, its dead silent and cool at full load

i would look into fractal cases, they make a really high quality product for a descent price, the arc midi and define r4 are two extremely good cases

besides what i said that is an excellent build, i would get the evo edition of the hyper 212 though
