    Im not sure if this is the right place for this, or the way things go in here, but here I go...
    Im building my first computer, and after quick research and some consulting from another finnish forum Ive come to this setup. What am I doing wrong and what am I missing? Is the power enough, graphics card OK with the motherboard? Suggestions for changes? All in all it seems good to me. The computer will be used for gaming and for some mid-heavy song demoing.

    Sorry if the listing is messy, but as a new user I can't post links or images here.

    You may also want a larger second hard drive 500gb goes quick with media files would recommend at least a 1TB

    I would go for an AMD processor and ATI graphics card. You should also get a name brand monitor like Samsung or Asus. You're also going to want a larger hard drive.

    500gig is good for now as can always add another drive later as you do also have that ssd drive as your boot drive. the processor is good with 4 cores & 4 threads plus lots of ram on the cache compared to some amd quad cores.

    i've used a kingston usb stick and honestly it was the cheapest p.o.s flash drive i've ever seen,not to mention after using it once lost all data on it.I hope for your sake the SSD is better
