Hello, I have been thinking of purchasing a gaming PC for a very long time now and I think it's time to go through with it. Since January of this year, I have been planning to purchase a gaming PC on Black Friday. My build has changed a lot from then so I need your help in rating my proposed build and making changes to it. This would be my first build/computer ever so I do need a lot of help. Here's a brief overview of me. I'm a 14 and a freshman in high school. I enjoy computers and I think it would be an awesome experience building one. I plan to use the PC for gaming, schoolwork, surfing the web, and editing photos/videos. Since it's my first PC, I will need a new monitor, OS, keyboard and mouse. I think I need help on deciding the mobo, hdd, ram and psu.

Approx. Purchase Date: Black Friday

Budget Range: Less than $1350

Location: St. Louis, Missouri

Preferred Websites/Places for Parts: 1) Actual MicroCenter Store 2) microcenter.com 3) newegg.com 4) amazon.com

Selected Parts:

CPU: http://bit.ly/Pq90qR

GPU: http://bit.ly/XzB2I6

MoBo: http://bit.ly/SItOLO

HDD: http://bit.ly/RZpNCB

RAM: 1.5v: http://bit.ly/WME4bA or 1.65v: http://bit.ly/ZixCZJ

PSU: http://bit.ly/wkEx8p

Case: http://bit.ly/LGhTm

CPU Cooler: http://bit.ly/pGSIam

SSD: http://amzn.to/TFyZ0b

OS: http://amzn.to/PlOR4N

Mouse: http://bit.ly/50jxQN

Keyboard: http://bit.ly/ZiyvRN

How is the build overall? Feel free to make any recommendations/changes! I would love reccomendations for a mouse, keyboard and especially with the monitor. I have a question about the Ram which is it better to have 1.65v or 1.5v?
Thanks,
Ryan

You can get away with a 550w psu, I would invest in a msi 670 pe.

This is the build I'm gonna get once I get the money http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/p/njvx
It will give you more performance, plus a moniter. Except no ssd, since I don't mind waiting less loading times. So I took the ssd money and put it into the 670.
