    What are you playing that is more processor intensive than graphically intensive? Honestly, I just want to know. I am not criticizing you, but if you need it more balanced or with a decent cpu and a better graphics card then I would go with a cheaper i5 and a GTX 960 or better, probably the R9 380 at this point in time. Anyway the GPU is good for a budget, I was just wondering why you chose a more expensive cpu with this gpu. Excuse the lack of knowledge I may have.

    I can relate to this build. By the time you price all the I5 options you're best off for the price difference to make it the top end I5. The fact it's I5 and not I7 is the prudence in putting the savings into the Video card. The higher end processor lets you sell the 2 Gig Video and replace with 4 Gig or higher as the money comes in. Also - as you find out how much video you need for the games you play. Smart build. Lottsa options these days. Boggles the mind. Changes too as the prices change.

    you don't need a 600w power supply for a system that needs 282w. you probably don't know this, since you cant spell "specialised" right. But, more power in watts doesn't make a PC better at gaming or increase speed, it may just explode from not using its power. go with a 300-350w Power Supply next time.

    Yeah I know that I don't need a 600w PSU I got it for headroom so I can upgrade to a better GPU later on and thanks for correcting me on my grammar I knew I got something wrong.

    i understand this is your first build but, you must have lost some of those who "specialise in computer building". "specialized" is what you should have said, young pc-wan

    I agree with Eric, you probably want to invest a little more into the GPU if this is intended for gaming. Also if you are going to be OCing your CPU I'd recommend a 3rd party cooler. A good cooler would be the Cooler Master 212 evo for like $25. Other than that its a pretty good build.

    Ericray-Z Maybe you should just let the kid do what he wants, but i suggest he get a GTX 950 SUperclocked with AGV 2.0 for only like 15 dollars more!
