This is my first time posting here as well as the first time attempting to build a computer.
This is what I've put together so far and wanted to get some advice as to how it looks.

There are a number of things I would like to do with this computer. First, I want the ability to play games at mid-high settings. I also would like to use the computer for development projects including CUDA. I want to use the computer as a media server as well.
Right now I want just a normal 1TB HD, but ultimately I want one of these SSHD: http://www.seagate.com/internal-hard-dr ... rid-drive/
. Once the SSHD become available, I want to use the original HD to store media and then SSHD for booting/installing programs.
I included the extra sound card because I've got a basic midi-keyboard I like to mess around with from time to time.
I'm leaning toward not getting an optical drive.. is this wise? I don't really want to get one for the sole purpose of installing an operating system, but I'm not sure what I would use one for besides DVD/Blu-ray backups.. My laptop hasn't had one for a couple of years now and it's never been a problem.
So yeah, that's what I've put together so far. There is a huge chance I might have overlooked something so please bear with me haha.. It's my first time and any/all advice is much appreciated! I'm here to learn
