-------------------------------------------
I've been researching a mid-high gaming build for a while and these are the parts I'm looking at. Please let me know if you see any obvious issues like compatibility. My main concerns are if the motherboard can get full use of the video card and the ram (in terms of performance, it holds up to 32gb).

CPU
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition

Motherboard
Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3

RAM
Kingston HyperX 4X4GB Kit (or 8GB if I'm looking to make cuts later)

Hard Drive (Torn between SSD or HDD. I feel like the installed game space will add up)
HDD - WDC Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM (WD1002FAEX)

SSD - OCZ-VERTEX4 128GB

PSU (750W may be a bit overkill. I think this system only needs at most 600W)
Thermaltake 750W (W0382RU)
