Hi, this will be my first ever build. Going with an ATX factor over an M-ATX factor as this appears to make the build process easier. Need the computer to be fast...especially on boot-up. Will still like to play modern games, but don't care about maximum settings...medium will be fine. Will also use system to do everyday tasks (surf, mail, watch videos, word processing, spreadsheets, etc.)
Would appreciate if you would recommend other parts than the ones I've already chosen for now or if you all think my build selection is good enough.
