Hi Zac, Posted Image

I think your build needs some adjustments. It is heavy on the CPU/RAM (would suit a workstation build) and light on the GPU, It will work but a more balanced system would give you better performance.

User reviews for your selected case on Newegg, not good as the cons are all fairly similar, and only one washable filter on the PSU intake. Is there a particular reason for choosing this case?

If you would like some suggestions for a build, Please give us a budget.
What monitor will you be using?
Do you have a Retail licensed OS?

Hi
Below is a gaming rig that will give you top notch performance and a good upgrade path.

When you are settled, it would be worth looking at the available GPUs, as there will be fresh options or price drops.
