My First Custom Build, Need Help

That's a solid build. MS screwed up and removed the start button menu from Windows 8 (will most likely be back with the first Service Pack update) but here's two links to check out if you want that button back.

I'm not sure about the speed boost tbh. I have Windows 7 and I really like it but Windows 8 will be most likely be my next OS. Iv'e always been one to move onto the next OS unlike a lot of people on here who are still stuck in the dark ages with XP.

Here's some reviews/benchmarks done here on Toms to check out,3317.html,3341.html,3334.html
