My First Build. Please Help!

Hello all, I'm very new to the site, but have already read a lot of helpful info here, so thanks to all!

I'm looking for help/suggestions for building my first PC. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to this subject, so any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Here's what I've put together after about couple weeks of researching:
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=26466887

This PC will be mostly used for simple everyday tasks, like web browsing, video watching, burning CDs, MS Office, etc. I'm sure these things don't require a big amount of computing power, but I still want it to be fairly fast. Also, I need a SSD to store important documents that I can't risk to lose in the event of a crash.

Please feel free to correct the list or make any suggestions. Thanks in advance!

  2. I'll move this to the Systems section, as you'll get more responses there.
  3. This topic has been moved from the section Opinions and Experiences to section Systems by Buwish
  4. First, the build you have is a decent one, I don't see any glaring issues.
    You can get a 7770 for the same price as the 7750: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202011
    You want *backups* if there is data you can't afford to lose, not an SSD. SSDs can and do die just like hard drives; it just tends to be a controller failure and as such you get no warning. That kingston one is a decent drive though.
    You can get almost the same performance as your build above for less $ if that interests you with an a10-5800k and and FM2 motherboard (using onboard graphics).
