Hey everyone this is going to be my first computer build ever and just wanted to list all of my chosen computer parts to see what you guys think of it as this is all so new to me. I'm only going to use this computer for gaming and the Internet just to download the games/steam. The case that I will be using is the corsair 750d. Also I am looking for a mobo with built in wifi since I will be too far away from the router to connect via cable.

I don't really have a budget for this build but I would like to keep it at or below the $1500 mark.

This gives you better performance for less. I wouldn't go with water cooling for your first build because if I were you I wouldn't want to keep worrying about if there is any leaks. That's just my opinion. Hope this helped!

The PC is good, but you pay too much for the MB and PSU, you can get the ASUS Z87-Pro and Antec NEO ECO 520C, because the gtx760 only draws 170W, also you can see in your list the estimated wattage is 373W for your system, and the z87pro has the wifi too.

I had looked at the z87 pro but wanted to go with a red and black color scheme while still keeping the built in wifi. The color scheme isn't as important as the performance. The main thing that I'm looking for is to be able to run games at the highest settings without any lag. Here is an updated list with some of the suggestions from above.
