I'm looking to buy these components and build my first system. Before I hit the "order" button, could I get some input on my choices?

1. Do these all look compatible?

2. Is the PSU sufficient?

3. Is there anything you would change/downgrade/upgrade?

4. Which SSD would you choose. It will be used for main programs while the standard HDD will be used for media storage mostly.

This system will mainly be used for gaming. I chose an i7 processor only because I want this system to last for quite a few years. I realize that most current games don't make use of hyper-threading.

Thanks, in advance, for any and all help.

Very nice list, good stuff. The only change I'd make is the SSD and go for Intel or Samsung instead.

Oh one other thing, See that the PSU Corsair TX750 is a V2 which is Seasonic made.

Brazened,

Is it a bad thing that the PSU is Seasonic made?

I'll look into other SSDs. Thanks for the input!

Seasonic is one of the best makers. The non V2 version is made by CWT which is supposed to be good but had been questionable in the past.
