I am trying to do my first custom build but like so many out there, I'm pretty broke. I have an i7 2600 from a previous PC as well as some ddr3 ram and 1tb HDD. I would like a gtx 970 Windforce for my gaming endeavours but other than that it's up to you. HAVE AT THE HE ME HEARTY!

Reuse the HDD. Put your OS to the SSD. A 390 is better than a 970. New generation 6 CPU makes the generation 2 CPU, i7 2600, look like a geezer. XFX TS is a great PSU, as it is made form SeaSonic, that will supply this rig with more than enough power.
