:welcome:   Bleach(Anime),

 

Not bad but what it comes down to is what it costs and what the computer will be used for, let us know both and we can then give you a more balanced answer.

 

Missing off the list is an optical drive and an OS such as Windows 64-bit.

Its up to yourself whether you answer, just looking to possibly save you some cash, time and trouble.

 

i haven't added drive because i have a 1tb drive at home 

 

 

An optical drive reads disks such as DVDs for installing Windows from. the 1TB drive that you refer to is a storage drive.

 

i have window 8.1 disc so ill upgrade to windows 10 

 

 

What type of disk do you have, an OEM or a full retail version.

 

As long as the OS is 64-bit it does not matter if it 7 or 10 but if me I would install 10 from the outset as Windows 7 will be retired in a few years in any event.

The build is massive overkill and expense if only for gaming, no problem if money is no object but fwiw you do not need or will utilise the capabilities of an i7 CPU or any more than 8GB of Ram, the 6GB video card the same but as the build is a gaming rig I would keep it in as there is no game around or due out that the card can not handle.

 

You do not mention the brand name of your GPU, avoid anything less than one of the more reliable brands EVGA, ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI in that order would be my preference, avoid PNY and Zotac.

 

Done you a list of parts based on your specs in your OP and put in a Gigabyte GPU to keep costs down Bleach(Anime) parts list, all parts are compatible. 

 

i have window 8.1 disc so ill upgrade to windows 10

Again up to you if you don`t answer but unless you have a full retail version product key for Windows you will need to purchase one, if you try and re use an OEM product key you risk being locked out of Windows as Microsoft will recognise that the key has already been used then prevent any updates from being installed and tell you that you need to contact MS.
