Building my first pc, I started with a few parts but have changed them over time. here is what I have:

I would like some feedback on this build and a good power supply, also if you think there's anything wrong with the motherboard I have picked out (I wasn't too sure on the motherboard I chose).

You will be able to get a very good overclock with this

Wouldn't it just be cheaper and better to get this?

It's got more or less the stuff I need, all it needs is a graphic card? (Not sure if it has windows on this computer, doesn't mention it anywhere, but it would still be a good price)

Of course you can reuse HDD and SSD from an old computer, you can reuse any component you like as long as compatible with new build!

You would have to wipe them of windows or else you will have TONS of problems and you will have to delete all soft wear on them for drivers

Tried and succeeded numerous time, you just format the drive first, and then install a fresh copy of windows.
