This is my very 1st build ever made I bought the parts on boxing day with my Christmas money and I sold Henry to add to my budget.
So 1st thing people are going to say "Why 16gb ram" My story is like this..... In a land far far away called Amazon.ca they mislabeled the MSI 7870 for GT630 so I bought 2 of the cards cause the price is only $71 ea.
On boxing day I went to get all my parts and everything, I was planning to build it on the next day. So while I was on my laptop I noticed I had a mail, It was from Amazon! I was really excited because it might be the tracking number for the cards but no. The email said.

Your order is now closed.
So I was like to myself you amazon ******* I already bought the ram because I was thinking I saved so much money on the graphics card so why not pickup a 16gb memory card and maybe a SSD if I have enough.
With the money that amazon gave back to me I figured out that Ill just buy a water cooler and overclock my system and Ill just get the graphics card later on.
