I am building my first computer, and I want some input on this build. Any advice is welcomed and please be critical to my build. Saying, "It looks good!" is not helpful. My budget is $1500. Thanks!

I think you have the saved build set as private.

Unless you're going to be doing a lot of editing or stuff like photoshop, 16gb of ram isn't needed. If you're going for 8gb of ram, go for 2x4gb as it's a little bit faster than a single stick.

If you're going to be overclocking, you'll want to stick in a cooler that isn't stock, the hyper 212 evo is pretty cheap and great for the price. If you're not going to be overclocking then you can go with a h97 chipset mobo and a non-k cpu.

You might also want to bump your power supply up to an 80+ gold rating, it'll save you some money on power in the long run for a bigger initial cost.

I've heard some people weren't too happy with mad catz's RAT mice, but I don't know for sure not to recommend it, but I'd look into some reviews.

Other than that it looks pretty solid to me.
