[Build Ready] First time building, but a tentative first attempt

This does stretch your budget a little but it definitely will be worth it, you could even play games on 1440p with this build, also XFX is a very underrated company who make really good stuff! I didn't add an optical drive to the build as I don't find a use for it as you can install windows using a USB, however if you want it add it in. Also if you have to remove the hard drive slot thing on the case you can simply install hard drive where the 5.25 drive bays are. I'm sorry for writing so much but just one more thing I'm pretty sure you can control your fan speeds with that motherboard if you're a silence freak like me. We'll here is your build!!
