How does my pc pre-build look for gaming?

Hello, I am finally building my first gaming pc. I am just a little skeptical on it. Not because I can't put it together, but I don't know what parts are good and is not.

I already have a 1TB hard drive I was going to use for storage and a CD drive thing.

I am also planning to get a Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 120GB to act as a boot drive.

I am looking to play on the ultra setting at least 1280x1024 or higher.

Here's the games I play/ will be playing

- spintires

-BeamNg.drive

-Black Ops 2

-MW3

-Battle Field 4

-America's Army: Proving Grounds

-Need For Speed: Most Wanted

Here's the pc: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/dcQBJx

Reason why I'm going for the 750W is because I'm planning to Crossfire the GPU down the road.

Thanks for your help!

  1. Your parts look fine, but keep in mind you'll need a case to house all of those. Also, your graphics card will be able to handle 1080p games. Don't hook this computer to a tv or buy a low resolution monitor, buy a 1080p monitor.

    I would change the SSD to a Samsung EVO 850 128GB drive and the power supply to this, mostly due to the price after MIR and RM series aren't good power supplies.

    I second the 850 EVO, I'm running one now and it's great. However, I would go for an evga power supply as opposed to the one listed in this post:

    This one is great in its price range. Also, never put McAfee on your computer.

    Oh sorry I must have forgotten to put in that I already have a Corsair 200R case. Can you tell me how many fans I can hook up to my motherboard? Or if I can use this ( http://www.amazon.com/Phobya-4-Pin-Splitter-Power-Eight/dp/B00OD7MO6E/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1427668909&sr=8-8&keywords=pc+fan+splitter) to have all the fan slots on my case filled

    Your motherboard will probably have 3-4 inputs for fans (and one for the cpu fan), so if you want to use more than that, the amazon item you listed will work just fine. You can also connect fans directly to your power supply, but then they'll be running at full speed all the time.
