New Gaming Build....Help?
Hey everyone, this is my first time building my own gaming computer and i've just begun to gather all of my components. I'd greatly appreciate it if you all could look over the list of components and make sure that everything is compatible, and it'd be great if you could suggest some upgrades where needed.
Also, I would like to implement a RAID 0, but i don't know if my motherboard is compatible.
