This is my first build. I got a little carried away and went all out on most the parts.
Everything went well with this build, and the computer runs pretty fast.
I bought all the storage to set up my own shared network around the house that I have yet to set up.
The video card came with 3 free games (assassin's creed 4, batman arkham origins, and splinter cell blacklist) which are all pretty cool, and look pretty badass on ultra settings.
I'm very happy with all the parts, and would recommend them all to anybody. Only a couple little things I don't like are that not all the SATA ports on the motherboard are 6gb/s, and that not all the front USB ports on the case are 3.0 (only 2 out of 4) and they are too close together if you want to plug in a few bigger thumbs drives at once. But those are all small trivial things.
EDIT I just went through all my receipts, and put in all the prices in case you were wondering. (I was kind of curious myself) I bought all the items between October 31st and December 31st 2013. (I waited for good Black Friday/Boxing Day deals). All Prices in CDN$ before taxes.
