Default Re: First time Build

Every thing seems perfect to me. I prefer i-7 processors to this build, but its still ok. Maybe you wan to compare here: PassMark Intel vs AMD CPU Benchmarks - High End

Also, I would choose a caviar Black edition: much faster. I have 5 of them and I'm really satisfied
Hope it helps
