This rig will be my first ever build so I am being extra cautious selecting components (aside from also being just a tad bit nervous I'm going to screw this one up). I will be using this rig primarily as my gaming rig. I've gotten some great feedback which I've incorporated into my build and could use one final nod of approval or comment before I pull the trigger this week.
