I have pretty much no experience or knowledge about modern hardware, other than the past couple hours I've spent researching it.
I built a rig online here: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/BwmgLD
I was hoping for any advice/recommendations. Anything that I'm paying too much for, that I wouldn't notice a difference with a cheaper option. Anything that I'm potentially bottlenecking my setup by going too cheap. Any brand that I chose that is know for being unreliable. Etc.
There are a couple notes on compatibility shown, it seems like they wouldn't be problems for me but if you think it will let me know.
I especially know nothing about what makes a case good or bad, and what is necessary with the power supply.
I have never put a rig together before, I do have experience soldering from my EE degree. I don't even know if you have to solder stuff together, but if the case influences the ease of assembly let me know.
I already have a ergodox keyboard. I have heard a gaming mouse isn't really any better than a normal one. And I plan to have a triple monitor set up eventually.
I prefer to develop on linux, but I figured for gaming I'll need to get windows and maybe run linux on a vm.
The price is about where I'd like it, maybe a bit cheaper if possible. But working on this computer is going to be my livelihood so I can spend some more if necessary.
And just any general advice for someone trying to build a rig for the first time would be great.
