    The CPU and the motherboard that you chose aren't compatible and the CPU is weak. The PSU can deliver way more power than you would actually need. Here are my suggestions. I don't know if you have a separate HDD already where you can store most of your data, but if you don't, you might want to consider one because the space on an SSD is quite low.

    Ravenloft usually
    Stalkerzzzz list is okay the only things I would change are the ram and video card

    7850 is probably enough to run whatever you need to run as far as the ram goes ripsaws have big clunky useless heatsinks on them get something like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233186
