This build will be used for gaming and some coding, and I really need to know if the case and the gpu that I chose are good. So, what do you think?

You might want to add a case fan or 2 because that case only comes with 1 120mm exhaust fan. Or go with the Spec-2 version (comes with 2 fans STD).

For the rear exhaust: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-case-fan-co9050003ww

I misspoke what I mentioned before. It comes with an Intake and not an exhaust.

Would it be better to go with the spec 2 or just get a case fan?
