Hi all, I'm trying to put together my first build. I was hoping you could look it over to make sure it is compatable and to see if you have other suggestions. The primary purpose of this rig is to play the Total War series, Europa Universalis and comparable titles.
As this is my first build, I'd also appreciate it if you notice a part I'm buying as being troublesome or difficult to work with.
I'd like to purchase this tomorrow, if possible, to take advantage of some sales this weekend. Thank you for your help!
Made some changes, i rather get low profile ram for cpu cooler clearance, also there's cheaper ram as good as the vengeance, the 4GB vram on the 670 is useless, get a 670 GTX with 2GB with a good cooling system, i included the 670 windforce 3x because it's cheaper, if you prefer evga brand, get the signature 2, also changed for a better monitor, an ips ledbacklit one, the capstone 750M is a high quality psu, made by super flower, so if you want to add another 670 gtx, it will do, and it's a lot cheaper then the nzxt hale90.

Hi, thank you very much for your help. I've incorporated most of your changes. I did stick with my monitor because it has a very good deal going on right now, and has 1000 reviews w/ a 5 egg rating. I understand the other one might be a little bit better but it wasn't worth the extra cash to me.
The only thing I'm curious about is the 4GB being useless. I understand right now there are only a few games that push past 2 (and nothing I plan on playing), but won't this start to change relatively soon? I just feel like it gives me a little more head room. Am I over-thinking things/flat out wrong here? It could save some more money going to 2. I wish they offered one w/ 3 but they don't.
