Hi guys, so its going to be my first pc build and I am kind of a newbie to this website. Here are some questions

  1. Is my build OKAY?

  2. With the list, there is a compatibility issue which states 'The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6Gb/s ports are disabled'. Will I be okay with this?

  3. Stupid question but does the 950 Samsung SSD hold 256gb of memory. It is just so small, so I'm sceptical.

  4. when choosing a RAM. the most important aspect is its compatibility with the motherboard right? so if the mother board is DDR4 the ram should also be DDR4. I ask this because, I see other RAM sticks which are 16gb and seem cheaper.

  5. Any advice for a first time build?

PLEASE REPLY SOON.

I will be buying the parts in the current week.

Hi guys. Thanks for your advice. My budget is about £1400. However with these components, I have seen places where there are cheaper places. I am happy with my original build as other users on this forum created this build for me a couple of months ago and I'm SATISFIED with their build. I'm just asking you guys. Is it okay?

I will be gaming and doing university work.

I definitely want the CPU and GPU, and the Samsung 950 ssd. As I do demanding uni work

Thanks so far, keep the responses coming
