I built this by myself and this is the first time I built a PC ever.

This will serve as a workstation and a gaming PC. I also want to future proof it as best as I can since I don't want to upgrade for a while. Any opinions and suggestions are helpful.

My bad I meant to put in the 650W G2. I heard that the 650 is the sweet spot for a PC and I am looking to maybe put in lights for the case as well. I just don't wan it to be underpowered.

I went with the Samsung Evo because it has tons of good reviews, but if the Crucial performs just as good then I'll get that. I also just like how the asus GPU looks, the RGB lighting, the extra two fan headers and the fact that it runs really quietly apparently. Thanks for the input!
