Hey, this is my first build. I am planning to sli in the future. Just want to know if this will be good for modern and future gaming. Feel free to state your opinion. I will be playing at 1920x1080p

Thanks.

I would recommend for you to purchase an after market cooler, such as the Hyper 212 Evo. Also, I would avoid the hard drive and recommend a WD Caviar Black. It is way more reliable! Other than that, it is a solid build for 1080p gaming!

Maybe a Red themed with SSD build?

Add a cooler if you decide to OC in the future. Only went with the Z MB and CPU for the SLI compatibility.
