Parts for First Build- Gaming PC
Hey all,

Getting ready to build my first PC, and wanted to get thoughts on the compatibility of the build I'm looking at, and any general recommendations.

I am primarily going to be using this PC for gaming (Total War; BF3; ME3), but it will also be my primary home computer. I have all my music and media backed up on an external hard drive, and thus don't believe I'll need tons of storage space.

Additionally, I have never messed around with overclocking, and am not sure if I will begin to. With that being said any advice on whether some of these parts are overkill or just right would be greatly appreciated.

You're going to need a hard drive. Something cheap will do as you won't fit you OS and games on a 64GB SSD. Check out a Caviar Blue or Samsung F3.
