I have been building my first gaming PC on the site for a few weeks now, and after researching most of my essential parts, I have decided to bring the PC before the council for judgement. Suggestions? Thoughts? Likes, dislikes? It's a little expensive, the budget is 2500-2600, and if given the chance, I would definitely pick parts that will last longer in order to keep this thing going for years to come. I am also looking into some peripherals (keyboard, mouse, and headphones) on Amazon, if anybody has any suggestions for those.
Thanks in advance,

Really light color on the specs.
Your case comes with no fans stock, you need to order them. It will not have any lighting. The pictures are for promo only.
32GB's of RAM is overkill for most. 16GB's is generally fine.
I would get the monitor locally. If you have an issue with it or dead pixels, you will have a month turn around to get a replacement. Locally just s few minutes.
Don't let CP overclock, they tend to just ramp voltages up. Use the MOBO software or look up how to for your MOBO on U tube.
Never never the standard PSU. CP will throw in what they have. Maybe a decent one, if they throw in the true standard one it is junk, has a high failure rate, provides uneven power (ripples) and has been known to fry systems. Thermaltake, EVGA, XFX, Corsair (not the TX series) are decent.
The promo Keyboard, Mouse, mouse pad are not bad. These are better then the standard junk. Further down the list delete the cheap ones that come pre-selected.
Remember valor, honor, independence, family & clan; I do whenever I hear the ceol mor, the "great music" of the Highland bagpipe. I swear upon the holy iron of my dirk that I will not forget.
