Is this a good build?

Hey guys! Is this a good PC build for the price? This is my first time building a computer and is this a little over kill? I have monitor and keyboard but would like to get newer ones.

Ya, should be great, but you're going to want another hard drive for storage.

MoBo seems a little overkill. Might save a few bucks by going for something cheaper like a UD3H.

ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

My thoughts:

-Do you really need water cooling? If so, OK, but most people really don't.

-You'll need a hard drive for file storage in addition to the SSD.

-You'd be fine with a slightly less expensive mobo, but it's not a big deal.

-You don't need to spend $80 on 8 GB of RAM. Again, not a big deal but savings add up.

-That case is freaking awesome.

-That power supply is overkill unless you are planning to SLI in the future.

I have the Fractal R4, but without the window. Such a nice case.

Here's one for about $30 cheaper that I got by tweaking your original build. I think it's a better value. It also includes an OS.

Cheaper RAM that is still good.
