First time builder! I'm going to use the rig for gaming and I'm at a 90% solution I think. I'm just looking for a sanity check before I start buying the components. Here are my main questions:
- Should I be concerned about my PSU being underpowered?
- I'm not real sure on my RAM selection, better options?
- SSD is pretty expensive but everything I've read says its the best, worth it?
I'm open to any suggestions/criticisms.
