I'm attempting to transition from console gaming to the "master race". I'm completely new at building, but this set will completely replace my PS4 in the living room. I'm planning on focusing on 1080p gaming until I upgrade my TV. Any help would be very appreciated. PCPartPicker part list](http://pcpartpicker.com/list/WzzWf8) / Price breakdown by merchant

That'll do it. You'll probably want more storage, that 275gb will fill up fast.

For some reason it didn't include the 2 terabyte HDD as secondary. I plan on using the SSD mainly for the OS and possibly other applications.
