Hi! This is my first time building a computer. I want to make one that will be fast enough for games like Battlefield 4, Dungeon Defenders, Blackops 2, Modern Warfare 3, Simcity 5, the Sims 3, Terraria, Trove, Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 (and 4), Cube World, and future releases - GTA 5, and Dying Light.

My budget is 1,200 so I am guilty of going over but it would be amazing if you guys could help me build a setup that was within my price range but also good for gaming, and heavy internet / application use. (Loading speed is very important to me thats why I've chosen an SSD).

Here is the build I have so far:

Feel free to completely change my components. (I'm a newbie.)

Perfect my friend. My only thing is you may want a better case. Those are good components and the case will really make you want to keep or get a new computer because of noise or heat. Good cable management goes a long way.

Thanks for the reply! I just kind of picked a case that looked appealing to me. Do you have any cases in mind that would help with the heat and noise levels?

Much appreciated,
