So, here is the final parts list I made, and I want all your guys opinions on it. Some things that I am questioning is the SSD, I think this is a good SSD, but I am thinking of a samsung SSD, either way I need an SSD with at least 240GB, and any other opinions on the parts will be appreciated.

IMO you should always get the same brand GPU as mobo.

Rest looks solid.

I decided to add an M.2, because its faster and only going to have windows 8.1 on it, chrome, and my only used most programs, than all other programs on my intel ssd, and videos, pics, documents, other will go on the HDD, and changed the GPU to an MSI GPU
