First Time Build will these parts conflict with one another?

ok I have an emachine et1331g-07w with an aftermarket NVidia gt 220 installed (yes I know pushing the power limit of the stock power supply and honestly it cant handle much more with out a massive upgrade to it that would basically cost a new from scratch build in time and money)

so that is what I want to do a "new build" for a new builder. I've done some research and the i5 4430's onboard graphics is on par with or not better then the gt 220 so even with out a new graphics card right now I could play all the games I play currently (slightly better in most cases). so instead of spending money now on a new graphics card I would rather take my 800 or so budget and push the other components with the idea of getting a new graphics card down the road say march or April when income tax checks come out and ill have a decent chunk of money to throw at a good card.

so here is what I plan to buy in December and my main question is will these components work together or do I need to change them out. my sub question is are there any inherent problems with these parts in failure rates or just bad design that I should avoid these particular models?

build as follows (from pc price picker)

I would prefer to use a single merchant so 794 would be the new egg price for all items (they are often the only one merchant to have all the parts I look at when I try to come up with a build).

thank you for your time and input as I am not close to being an expert on this (I would go with an oc able cpu but I have never overclocked and honestly don't know where to start to do that so probably best that I just don't for now at least)

  1. Best answer
    You might want to get a B85 or H87 mobo if you aren't getting an unlocked processor to save some money.
  2. there sould be no problems with this build. but if you change parts here and there u can add a gpu

    that is an idea, I mean the only thing I care about on the mb I that it is at least 2way sli so if I ever do need to sli I have the option with out getting a new mb. and that it has a 1k Ethernet connection built in so I don't have to buy an aftermarket connection. I mean my only real issue that I worry about is reliability which I hear bad things about every company that makes every component (forgot to mention originally that I plan to use my old hdd (500 gig) just for random storage and old games that are all ready loaded on it if that matters at all)
  4. I think you could incorporate a cheap GPU for such a budget and it will be much better than the integrated GPU. Just find cheaper mobo and CPU.

    I play games on Pentium G2030 and AMD 7770 on high settings. I think that if the PC is mainly for Gaming than try to spend less on CPU and more on GPU.

    i want to be able to play star citizen in the future but being that the system requirements are slowly climbing to beyond current tech (at least affordability wise) i would like to just keep my options open and either go amd3+ processor or intel 1155 just for the sake that if the mb dies before the processor goes out i could likely find one cheaper then an older socketed mb. being that this build will be a present from my wife for xmas im in no hurry to decide on what parts to pick (though would likely start to buy up stuff if i see something on sale for a good discount). so if you have a good processor/mb combo suggestion that is somewhat future stable i would happily look into it and forget the sli comment from earlier i completely forgot that the idea of a gpu sucking air from the back of a hot gpu disturbs me.

    and while gaming is the main focus i also do some cad (mostly just stuff that i think up nothing professional (old copy's of student edition auto desk and such yes legit as i was a cad student at the time i purchased them)
  6. My personal preference is Intel CPU coz I think they are better in terms of single threaded performance and also the power efficiency. I was willing to go for LGA 1155 and cheap G2030 (2 core, 3 GHZ) CPU and add some i5 or some xenon CPU later stages when i have the budget. I dont know however how long will Intel be selling LGA 1155 socket chips. You have a bit more future proof build coz you have LGA1150 Haswell CPU - if im correct they will be releasing new CPUS also in the same socket.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?search=Intel+Architecture&title=Special%3ASearch
    Broadwell-D: desktop version (LGA 1150 socket)


    And i think that future games will be playable anyways - maybe you will need to lower settings to some medium or smth. I dont think that the game developers will be trying to go for very high hardware requirements and forget about low hardware PCs as they want to sell as much games as possible.

    Cant comment on the CAD performance.
  7. thank you all for your answers going to pick a best answer just based on him/her giving me the question I asked the fastest but you all opened my eyes to some more options and I appreciate the point of views.
