I am new to the world of building computers and was looking to build my first one, and i wanted to get some opinions about the set up that i was getting. I will post what i am thinking about getting and if you have any suggestions, recommendations, changes, or problems that you see please let me know. If you do think i should make any changes i want to keep my budget limited to $1500 and below USD. So if you guys could take a look and tell me how this set up looks that would be very appreciated!
