It's my first time building my own computer, although I do know people who will help me with the assembly once the parts come in. I'm curious about opinions on the part list I've come up with : http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/mxtsP6 . I'm a young professional and will be using this computer for gaming (WoW, CS:GO, trying new MMO releases) as well as simple work tasks like email and excel. I'm looking for the computer to be able to run games decently for the next five or so years. I will be re-using an optical drive and PSU from my old computer(Uncle built me one a few years ago) and have a copy of Windows 8 that I bought on sale at my university.
I'm not sure if my build's parts are compatible or if any of them are overkill. I'm open to any comments and criticism, thanks so much for your time!
