You are fine, I mean there are better cases out there than the spec alpha for around the same price and one or two good cases that are cheaper but otherwise you are fine.

I am guessing you want the spec alpha for its rather gamer style looks, tempered glass and RGB capability?

Even Corsair has some better options in that price range such as the spec 06 and the 275R

I only mention those as i am aware that the spec alpha has rather right space and it has caused some grief in terms of cable management.

A first time builder should be a tad more conservative, I mean yes its nice to have a cool gaming case with tempered glass and flashy lights but sometimes practicality is better.

 

Also i take it this is just going to be a gamer build? Because if you are going to do both gaming and video editing the Ryzen 5 2600/2600X and Ryzen 7 2700/2700X may be a better option.

I mean not much can beat the 8700K when it comes to gaming but if you are going to do video editing the ryzen series is not a bad option, you may loose a few FPS but the 2700X is cheaper and you dont need a high end motherboard to overclock with ryzen.

Thats fine, I was just asking what you were doing as you could change a few parts and save some money to devote to other parts.

Such as a SSD and such as you make no mention if you have hard drives prepared or not.

I mean you could lose that RGB RAM, sure it may look pretty but the cost of the RGB is something that would be better invested somewhere else.

You could save some money by getting say a pair of G.Skill Ripjaws which even though doesnt have RGB will still do the same job.

Same thing with that cooler, as you also have to keep in mind what will fit in your case.

the 240MM version of the H150i should fit though but ditching RGB would save some money there too

You could get a cheaper cooler, the cooler master masterliquid is actually very good if you want liquid cooler on a budget, it may not have the same cooling performance but is still a great value if you want a good AIO.

Remember to never choose form over function, first time builders sometimes go for the bling but never for the bang and sometimes that leads to spending money on something you dont need.

Plus you still didnt factor money in for your windows licence, if you want windows 10 pro it will cost you unless you go gray market.

You really didnt mention your budget but guessing you have such high end parts in mind I can gather money is not an issue but even if you have loads of funds sometimes financial planning does pay off.

I mean you will still need windows, plus possibly games to play if you are new to PC gaming.

Not to mention if you have hard drives or not.

For all I know you do all your internet browsing on a cheap android or even a iphone
