My friend is selling me his 970 and I've decided to build my first computer with that.

Looks Alright, Would recommend snagging an 850-EVO SSD they are better than the Sandisk ones and it shouldn't be too much more. Besides that looks pretty solid tbh, good psu, solid hdd, decent ram, might go with a more future proofed motherboard but that one should do just fine.

I wouldn't recommend buying a 'grey-market' Windows 10 key if you were intending to.
