Newb at Building, Any thoughts on my wishlist?

I am willing to spend up to $1000, but preferably I would like to stay in the $600-$800 range.

I already have a gaming mouse. It's a Logitech G300s.

Is there anything I should change or remove?

Im guessing this is a gaming build right?

If so then what resolution are you planning to play at?

Unless you are doing music production you dont really need a soundcard. The onboard sound from the motherboard is good enough.

I am planning a gaming/game making build, which I may also dabble in music making at some point. I guess I can do away with the sound card for now and maybe get one later down the line if I need it. I also wanted to play at 16:9 since I heard that's the standard.

I do have a few questions.

  1. If I only needed to buy either the HDD or the SSD, which one should I keep? Or is it better to get both anyway?
  2. Do I need to worry about cooling on the video card?
  3. Is the Corsair 200R case less reliable than the Phanteks to a point that I absolutely need an upgrade? I just need that cleared up.
  4. Is the optical drive unnecessary or redundant in any sort of way? Just wondering.
