Hello, Let me start off by saying this is my first build. I am putting together a gaming pc, this is what i have so far. I was looking for any feedback i could get on this and suggestions on a motherboard and power supply. Also the case is an issue as well I'm not to sure how to tell if it is big enough for everything. Any feedback or tweaks to the build would be appreciated.

Yeah I'm with Troll, not knowing what the budget is will allow us to better assist.

But for now you can certainly cut down on the case and the RAM - there's no reason to pay that much for RAM. And you can cut out the BD-R drive unless you need it for backups.

I want to keep it under $1200
I'm in the US California
I'm only planing on running one card
As far as overclocking i haven't got into that yet so i probably wont be.

If you don't need OS then use that money and get a good SSD.
