Hey! This is going to be my first PC build and I am centering it around gaming. I’m very ignorant of quality parts and which are compatible with which so any and all feedback is appreciated. And if you have any changes you’d like to suggest please do. I plan to be able to upgrade this in the future, and not spend much more than 1000 on it now. Thanks.

-Not planning to overclock
-Could install a SSD for booting but I have not decided on that either, so any suggestions...
-The SSD doesn’t need to be huge. I was thinking the Samsung 830 or 840 Series with a capacity of 32GB-128GB
EDIT: As far as the SSD goes, I found this
one with a price that is attractive to me.
