Yes, this is my first build. I'm looking to put together a "nice" gaming rig and for opinions from experienced builders. Maybe I shouldn't go so expensive on a first build, but I would like the machine to have some longevity. I originally had 16GB of corsair vengeance RAM and a 240GB SSD on this list but stepped down the capacity of both because I was told the larger size memory and SSD weren't necessary. I also upgraded the video card from an msi GTX 750 2GB 128bit to an ASUS GTX 760 4GB 256bit. Any other thoughts? Should I go with a MB that supports SLI instead the current choice? I realize I have a lot to learn here so I'm open to any and all input. Thank you in advance.
