Default Gaming Computer and Accessories advice wanted

SAo I just ordered all the parts for my new, and first, gaming computer. I admit it is over kill, and this is certainly not my first computer I'm building, just the first high-end one so I have aome experience. I wanted some input on my decisions though in regards to the strength of my build and advice on accessories. I want to know what gaming mouses or keyboards you reccommend as well as if I should buy a different pcu fan or additional fans, however I don't think I should because I don't plan to overclock. Another question is should I go the extra mile and buy the signature edition backplate card for the gpu under the warrant it actually helps.

Aside from the GPU and CPU, all parts were ordered from NewEgg.

A last note, the ram running at 2400 is something I'm a little set on. I know it is unnecessary, but my friend wants me to tell him how smoothly it runs with it.

If you want get the best performance for your CPU gaming, you can focus on VGA capacity. Use the minimum VGA RAM 2GB, and for the processor use only high speed processor, such as your spec above. I think your spec is good enough for your gaming PC.
