Hey guys.

I'm building my first computer, and I would really appreciate some advice on my build. I intend to buy it during the Black Friday sale on newegg to get the best deal I can.

It's mostly for gaming. I've never had a good gaming computer, and I'd love to have one where I can max out graphics while maintaining great performance and a high frame rate.

I'm not the kind of guy who upgrades every year or two. It's been 6-7 years since I got my last computer, and it's a laptop. I want something that will LAST!

I've done a lot of incredibly disorganized research, so it's quite possible I'm missing compatibility issues or obvious better options, hence me seeking a second opinion. Any help would be much appreciated!

Here is my newegg wishlist: http://secure.newegg...Number=21366948

I'm waiting for Black Friday and/or Cyber Monday sales to do most of the purchasing.

Thank you very much!

I believe the link you provided goes to a page specific to your profile. Can you link the individual parts instead?

Whoops, I had an extra letter in the web address. Thanks for pointing that out.

Looks like a great build. You should be great on maxed settings for a couple of years and after that, it should last you a long time if you are willing to turn down the settings a bit. Nice choice of fan too, you will be able to get a great overclock out of that (if you're in to overclocking :D)

Forget the toolkit and static mat, you only need a Philips head screwdriver.
Everything looks good, the only change I would make is the the PSU. It's the heart and lungs of the PC so it needs to be strong. Check this guy out or if you're looking more budget friendly This guy will do it but you wont have as much headroom in the future for video cards.
