This is my first build I've bought all of the components but after reading up it seems like I should change the ssd drive to a samsung one for longevity. What do you guys think ? Also for the graphic card I went for Palit GeForce GTX 1070 8GB Dual Video Card but there is some many brands out and I'm wondering if I should of picked a different brand, any tips ?

Thanks for responding.

Looks fine to me

The only thing i found iffy about the graphic card is that it don't have a backplate

Mmm wouldn't that mean better air flow ? Or am I completely mistaken?

I don't think backplate really affect airflow, since backplate is located in the back and the cooler is blowing air directly to the gpu

Do you think the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 GAMING X 8G. 1920 would be a better choice?

I guess that depends on the price of that card. Don't get me wrong, the MSI GTX1070 Gaming X is the better card from a more reputable maker of the two. And it have higher factory oc, better cooling (better oc potential), and stuff. But in the end they're both a GTX 1070 card and the performance won't be that much different. Going with the cheapest card, which the Palit Dual is, are usually a good idea.

Do you think the longevity will be the samend?

Also the MSI is only £8 more
