Hello people of Tom's Hardware, I am ready to build my first ever system and picked out all the PC parts that I will use for gaming and some Blender software projects. I have been saving money for a long time and I need to make sure I get this right or my 689$ will be wasted. So tell me, Look at the parts I chose out and make sure that these are compatible or a recommendation.
