I build my first PC gaming build, some parts I already had, but I just wanna know what you guys think on the parts list and How I did on choosing and purchasing parts. The reason you wont see where I bought my parts is because ALL of them were bought at best buy with the BBYCC for the 24 month interest free financing. Enjoy!

also since i had to use the saved parts list for some reason, here is the explanation I used.
So I built this computer for a few reasons. I have a PS4 and bought it litterally with the trade in I had from my old 360, and all my games and peripherals, didn't pay a cent for it, but there were no games?! I then thought to myself "well you have all your friends on pc so it's ok, we can wait to play PS4 games" Then my older Acer laptop I had been using for LoL had a shot motherboard................ Hence, I introduce, The Tarrasque.
(So first off, I bought all my parts at best buy, A. 24 months interest free financing, B. A friend of mine is a supervisor so I had him help me out with prices)
CPU: At first I was going to buy an I5 4670k for about 250, Then I saw the I7 4820k for about 70$ more, and I couldn't resist, with the larger amount of threads, and ridiculous amount of overclock-ability it was a no brainer, then my friend brought it down to the same price and I was like.... SOLD
CPU COOLER: So here is a fun story, my parts come in, and my computer is nigh built fully, and low and behold, NO CPU COOLER IN THE CPU BOX "CRAP CRAP CRAP" So I ran down to Micro center, and bought the 212 because everywhere I went people said it was the best for the price. Cha-ching
Mobo: So to be really honest, my MOBO was kinda a only choice thing, it was for 279 originally and wanted to buy the Sabertooth x79 instead but my friend said he would super discount it, and that it's a good mobo. Fine, bought.
Memory: I have always liked corsair, they always made a good product and I feel like they last a long time so this was a no brainer, kind wish I had bought G-Skill instead though, but no complaints.
Storage: The pny SSD was only 80$.... need I say more? Same with the Seagate, was only 60$....
Case: So again with the Corsair spiel above, but this case was 99.99$ I got it for 60$ mwhahahahaha!
PSU: Cheap, good, and will do the job for the time being.
GPU: Well it's NVIDIA made which is epic, it was only 169.99 so I got it very cheap, and happily too :)
All peripherals were something I already had other than the new k70 keyboard, which btw is quite epic if you are thinking about buying one. I will be putting more pictures up soon
