Your config looks very good to me. I endorse every choice for price/ performance. Your video card will allow solid 1440p gaming at high for the next several years, and crush every thing at 1080p. All the rest is quality, well warranted, name-brand parts. Buy it.

Congratulations and welcome to DS. AwesomeThat is a good solid build and will perform like Cretae stated. I only will add that the warranty is only for 1 year parts.

Enjoy and do keep us posted. Big%20Smile
