Hey guys, this is the first time I'm building my very own computer...I needed something for gaming, and building my own seems like quite the "Rite of Passage" for being a true PC gamer. However, being new to this I'm quite literally flipping out over this. Obviously, I do not want to screw anything up.
Here is the build I've picked out: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/L31O
Do you guys think that's all going to work well together? I don't want to be "bottlenecking" the higher-end parts. The PC is going to cost over $1500, so screwing up could be a major disaster for me.
My biggest worry is knowing which cables connect where. (I heard that SSDs have to be connected to SATA3? and HHD should be SATA6?...maybe vice versa...) I bought a modular PSU, so that should help I'm sure. Any tips/guides/suggestions from you guys would be great.
Also, should I buy the "De-magnetized" tools for $30, or is it really not a big deal to use normal screw drivers? Don't want to screw up an expensive component on my first build...
And do I need extender cables or anything like that? If I don't have to spend any more money that would be great...but if I practically need it, then I might as well shell out some more cash.
Anything else you guys can think of that would help a First-Timer like myself would be extremely helpful...can hardly sleep thinking about this build
