Is this a good build?

PC Experts, I need you. This is my first build, and please don't be afraid to criticize my build. If it sucks, let me know, but I've been researching for months on PC building.

The build I'm going for should go a little bit below or above $1000 dollars. It'll be a high end PC more powerful than consoles, but it won't be a 4k monster powerhouse with liquid cooling. I haven't really decided much on the power supply and disc drive. I really don't know as much about those. I want a disc drive that burns blu rays. I know i5 is all people need for gaming but, I'll be sticking with an i7 because I'll be making videos and animations on this thing as well. So that's about it.

I changed it to a fully modular. Do I really absoulutely need an SSD though?

SSDs greatly increase performance, whether that is booting up your PC, an application, or file transfers. I'd recommend it for the price point you are going for. 128-256GB will do you fine.

yes, it really speeds things up. get the 840 EVO good price . you only need a 256 GB one for OS and a few often used programs.
