Thread Starter 
Ordering parts to build my first proper gaming rig tomorrow, maybe next day, heres a list of what im ordering:

Samsung 840 EVO Series 250GB SSD

AMD FX-8350 8 Core Black Edition Processor

ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z Motherboard

Silverstone Strider Gold ST85F-GS 850W PSU

Gigabyte Radeon R9 290 OC 4GB

Aerocool GT-S White Edition Case (just changed my mind to get black case lol)

Corsair Vengeance Pro CMY16GX3M2A1600C9R 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3

i was going to order a small cpu watercooler but might wait a few weeks and just order a complete water cooling system.

feel free to comment if you see somethng incompatible, or just a general comment/suggestion, thanks guys

Looks good to me biggrin.gif I assume you have another HDD for games and such besides that SSD?

Edit: I'd get the black, it would match the internals and look so much better tongue.gif

hey again peoples, just thought i would post again, show you what i ended up building, and how its going so far (am really happy with the result).




Original idea, and changes in brackets:

Samsung 840 EVO Series 250GB SSD (got the PRO version instead 250GB)

AMD FX-8350 8 Core Black Edition Processor

ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z Motherboard

Silverstone Strider Gold ST85F-GS 850W PSU

Gigabyte Radeon R9 290 OC 4GB

Aerocool GT-S White Edition Case (got the black case instead)

Corsair Vengeance Pro CMY16GX3M2A1600C9R 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 (got the corsair vengeance low profile design instead still 2x8GB 1600mhx)

purchased an EVO 212 cooler for the cpu too smile.gif

will load some pictures when i figure out how to not make them enormous tongue.gif

i do have to ask, if you can see in the pictures (if they work) should i face my cpu fan on the underside so it blows the hot air towards top exhaust fan? my only concern there is it might be pulling hot air off the graphics card?

if anyone can spot anything else they think could be changed/made better please feel free to msg. this is my first proper build and im really happy with both the end result and the fact i built it right first attempt, only had to change one plug, i plugged one of the case fans into optional cpu fan plug by mistake lol.
