My First Build, Budget

UrgotMeHard

Hello All,

Looking for some input, this is my first build and I am working on a tight budget. I have been playing around with different builds for about 2 weeks now. I have been reading the forums as much as I can. The following is the current build, any advice will be welcomed! Anywhere I can save money? I live in the US, and I am going to be primarily playing RTS (LoL, SC2, D3) and doing some programing. I can not wait to read all your thoughts.

Thanks,

As for the Hybrid drive I'm not sure about. I don't think the tech's right just yet. It only has like an 8GB SSD on board, and plenty of people have complained about a decrease in performance when switching to a Hybrid drive. I'd go with a standard Hdd and see if you could squeeze in an SSD into your budget.

Thanks so much for your input! Yea, I had my doubts on the hybrid. It sounds great in theory! I will make the change.
