Need Help picked all parts for new deskptop build

This is my first built so I have very minimal knowledge in building a desktop. Much help is appreciated. I picked all the parts in neweggs but I am not sure if these are right for me and will work.

I'm not a hardcore gamer but I will play some games, sc,cs,LoL. I run a lot of cpuintensive processes ,Alot of multitasking, downloading, video watching.

My budget is around $600. But these came out to around $700. Is $700 a lot for a non hardcoregamer? I'm thinking about longterm, so if this $700 build will last me 5+ years than I guess I will be fine with it.

Am I way over my head with this? :(

More about picked parts deskptop build
  1. firstly where is graphics card secondly if u r not gonna get a graphics card why do u have a 635 w psu???
  2. I thought I didnt need one since the the cpu was integrated with
  3. there is 2 big problems:
    1. you need a socket 1150 motherboard for an i5 4670k
    2. raidmax psus are garbage. choose a corsair, seasonic or xfx one

    a quality 500W is more then enough for your system with no discrete graphics card.

    as u said u arent a hardcore gamer and arent gonna play games like bf4 or crysis 3 so just get a low end card like hd 7770 or 650ti it would be great for gaming alot better than only the cpu
  10. Alright Thanks!
  11. Ill shop for a graphics card and go with a CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 430W. THanks for all the help
  12. You missed one of the points I said. THAT MOTHERBOARD IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH i5-4670k.
  13. MSI Z87-G45 Gaming LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX

    I got this. Its a combo deal on newegg. Do you know of anyother thats cheaper than this?
