hello. I am in need of a gaming rig and one of my friends told me to make a custom pc. I live in Canada and am buying my parts from canadacomputer. I would like to keep the cost of it under $1000 total. I already have a monitor and my cousin is willing to give me one of his hard drives. i already have purchased windows.I am not really a tech expert. My cousin told me that some parts might not be compatible with each other. I would like to know if these parts are compatible and if there are cheaper alternatives without sacrificing performance. I also care about how my pc looks. I plan to pick up my parts in store. here are my parts. I also plan to over clock my CPU.
