I was going for a build of a gaming PC for under $1000, what do you think? This is also my first build I've ever made and is going to be my first put together desktop, so any help with assembly tips is welcomed.

Any advice on changes or anything is much appreciated.

Since you're not getting the k variant of the 4570, you don't need a Z87 motherboard - a H87 motherboard would be more appropriate.

I'd change the HDD to a WD Caviar Black too.

Everything else looks good to me :)

Would you recommend going with the K variant? also do you have any ideas to slim the price down at all?

If you plan to overclock, the "k" variant is mandatory.

If not, the regular 4570 would be more appropriate, with a H87 chipset motherboard - this would be the cheaper option.

As for slimming the price, you don't need 16gb of RAM - 8gb would be fine, and a lot cheaper.

A cheaper case is an option as well.

Other than that, there isn't much.

I would go with the K variant. Chances are that you will want to overclock in the future.

From what I know about overclocking, I'm not all that interested right now, maybe in a few years I'll switch everything over.

Will this build be able to run upcoming games liek Battlefield 4 and arma II? Those are some of the main ones I will be playing, along with Skyrim and future elder scrolls games.
