Hey guys I'm in the market to buy a new pc for gaming, programming and a tiny bit of 3d modeling. Also i want it to be quiet and last me about 7-10 years with maybe some upgrades to storage and the gpu but nothing else. I've basically chosen all my parts and want you guys to look over them before I actually buy them. Right now my build is a little over $2000 and if you guys could help me get it a little more affordable, maybe $1900ish, that'd be great.

I recommend an i5-4670K with an Extreme4. Drop down to 8 GB of RAM, and cut back on most of the fans. You can get away with an Ultra Plus SSD.

This will be much better for gaming.

Dropped you down to 8GB of RAM with 2 modules to take advantage of the dual channels.

I dropped you down to a 120GB SSD for your operating system, compiler, and modeling software. Everything else can go on the HDD.

Wait for the R9-280x.

That case will give you much better airflow and already has fans.

I got you a more reliable PSU.

I added an optical drive.
