Hey everyone just need some help and recommendations on my first PC that I will be building. I'll primarily be using it for gaming. I just need some idea on what in the build should be changed or is too overkill or not enough. Thanks for the help!

Looks very nice for a first pc :D there's a few things I'd change tho...

As per the pccasegear page the case comes with 4 fans already so you could drop the extras

If you're gonna overclock the cpu/gpu I'd increase the psu wattage to give it a bit more breathing room

780ti could be overkill depending on your monitor setup & what fps you want, but you'll be good with it for a while so... amd generally offer better bang for your buck, but it does vary from game to game

Unless you have some old wifi devices you prolly don't need 802.11a

I wouldn't want a rig without a ssd these days but that's down to you and your budget I guess... :D
