Hello. This is my first build ever. I did a lot of research to see if I could build something that was cheap and that I could game on. Can anyone tell me if I'll run into some complications, or if I should swap something out .

The mother board was giving to me brand new, so I just started building from there http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Ejperez/saved/r2gZxr

Thank you for taking the time out to read this !

A 32GB SSD is too small, Windows will fill that in no time, and when the disk is near full performance goes downhill fast. 4GB RAM is not enough for gaming, you really need 8GB. That GPU is a bit too low end for gaming very well.

What I would suggest is to forget the SSD for now, spend the money on more memory and better GPU. It'll work, but you are going to have to turn graphic settings down.

Thank you!!! I figured I was going to need more space on my ram. And I needed to upgrade my cpu later. But the SSD I didn't think it was to small :p oh well I'll have to save up and buy a decent one :)

Thank you

Just an FYI if you don't have the money for something like a 256GB SSD you can get a Hybrid Hard drive which will give you performance levels near that of an SSD with the capacity of a HDD.
