A little over my budget so if I can slim it down at all I would like to, but to be honest I'm set on most of this. Really I guess I'm asking for opinions, this will be my first ever PC that I've built. Thanks!
I just built a computer for $770. I used a AMD FX-4130 which I think I got for $99 from Microcenter. It may have a slightly higher TDP than an Intel processor, but it does the same job and just as well as an Intel. It almost always come down to what name you want.
Yes. Only thing is though im not sure if that motherboard can overclock. Since you're getting the K version CPU I'll assume you plan to overclock eventually. You're going to want a z87 for that cpu, you currently have a h87. This will all bring the cost up and tbh you could stick with what you had before and be totally fine, it comes down to whether or not you want the latest and greatest. The performance difference wont be huge though i can tell you that.
