I'm using this for gaming (battlefield 4, arma 3) and programming. I'm a computer science student going into programming and will be making games as a hobby. This is first build so please give your input on anything you feel necessary.

**Note: I already did buy some parts, for instance the graphics card and optical drive and case.

Corsair is an excellent brand (depending on what model of PSU you get). Personally I recommend SeaSonic & XFX. Corsair's fully modular like $150+ are good. -.-

Ahhh okay, I think I'll just use the cooler master til it dies and buy a better brand

I wouldn't do that...seriously? If it shorts it will fry your system...that's why I don't recommend anything I wouldn't run my 4,500 dollar system on.
