  1. Nice build but I suggest getting a bit better psu. Considering your overclocking, you might want a 550w or 600w but other than that it's fine.
  2. ok

    This SSD is even better.


    No it isn't - not by a long shot.

    You don't need the expensive keyboard - you can always get that later. The extra case fan isn't needed either.

    I'd get this:

    This is good. Always room for manipulation, but this will work very well.
