    So I've started choosing my first PC parts. I just wanted some advice on what parts to choose, and feedback or change suggestions of the hardware I've already chosen.
    Parts I'm thinking of buying:

    Graphics card: GTX 970 Gigabyte 1G
    Case: NZXT Phantom 410
    Processor: Intel i7-4790
    Cooling: Nanoxia Deep Silence 120mm Ultra-Quiet
    Hard Drive: Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX 1TB

    So I still need some more parts obviously, and it would be great if you guys could suggest a motherboard, RAM and a power supply that are compatible with all this stuff (or with anything you suggest)
    Also, could someone tell me what performance I can expect from this when playing games?

    I assume you intend to play games with this system.

    First thing I see is the WD blue drive. The blue series is not a performance hd; if you have to have a mech hd, then go with a black series drive OR a raptor drive. A much better option would be a ssd drive for the system drive and a WD black drive for backups, data, etc.

    As for a mb, I use either asus or gigabyte boards; either one with the z97 chipset will be fine.
