First build polishing

I think this is a good first time build. It'll be used for gaming (mostly FPS) and MS office. Not planning on overclocking it at all, but I'm unsure on the heat management. I expect this computer will make a reasonable amount of heat under load, but I'm not quite sure on how many case fans are required and good layouts.

If nothing else, I'm trying to get as many eyes on this build as I can. I don't have any ego about it, so if it's not good, I want to know.

Might want to get a different ssd, I have heard a lot of bad things about the V300 series. Go with samsung, or crucial.

Swapped for a slightly larger Samsung SSD thanks!

There won't be much heat on this rig. But, if you want to be on the safe side, get another case fan, as there are only 2 included fans that come with the case.
