First system to be built from scratch


Nov 23, 2012
I just wanted to check in here and see if anyone notices any conflicts that might arise. Everything I've looked at indicates all the components should work together but better to check with you guys that really know these parts. Any comments on the configuration are welcome also.

A couple questions:
At some point I want to add a second video card will that power supply handle both?
I don't really know anything about HDD and SSD working together. Whats the best way for me to set them up? The computer is primarily for gaming and I tend to play a lot of them so putting games on the SSD doesn't seem like a good idea.
