When you say "build" are you going to buy parts and put it together or just selection options for them to build it?

The specs are good for a gaming setup. I would not spend that much on an extra 1TB SSD unless you are planning on installing a lot of games on the thing at one time. For backups, an external sub $100 standard drive or internal drive would be better.

I'm just selecting the options they provide on the website for them to build it. What is the purpose of SATA and PCIe? Is one better than the other?
