Finalizing Parts To Buy for my 1st Game/school computer

I just chose parts based on their recommendations. It would be nice if anyone can look at the list to see If anything needs changing before I order the parts!

  1. Every thing looks good, but I would scale down to 8 gigs of ram. 8 is more than enough unless you're going to be doing some heavy video editing.
  2. What about an optical drive and good cooling fans?

    I have extra optical drives

    and good cooling fans can be added later.


    Any suggestions on good cooling fans with maybe Blue LED?
