Re: First Computer Build ~$1000
Everything is compatible, and its overall not a bad build.
That being said, there are some tweaks I would personally look at like getting a SATA III SSD; if you're going to OC 1600MHz RAM, if not ditch the aftermarket cooler; and getting a better brand power supply, though you don't have that option when buying an iBuypower pre-built.
If you're willing to build it yourself I'm confident you could either build this machine with quality parts, or a better machine altogether, for the same price.
Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
