Hi everyone, i will be buying a new system once the r9 290 non reference coolers come out and i was wondering if this is a good system build:

CPU: i5-4670
GPU: R9 290
RAM: G.SKILL ripjaws-x 2133mhz
MB: MSI g45-gaming
PSU: RM650
CASE: Fractal Design R4
CPU COOLER: Hyper 212 evo
Optional Additions: 2 fractal design 120mm silent fans for case

PC would be for gaming on 1920x1080 (1080p) games like bf4/cod/crysis/gta v (once it is released on pc). I would love to hear the communities thoughts on this build, thanks!

Are you getting the i5-4670 or the i5-4670k? Make sure to get the K version or else your CPU cooler will be a waste. Anyway, it's a good build.

^+1 definitely get the k version. It will allow you to overclock.

Yeah i was not too sure if i even needed to overclock the cpu, i think its good as it is... but who knows if it is needed in the future. I thought my q8200 was bullet-proof when i first bought it 5 yrs ago...

If you aren't buying the K version no need to buy the after market cpu cooler cuz you cant and you mentioned don't wanna overclock..the stock cooler should suffice..and you haven't mentioned how many gigs of RAM..8 gigs at 1600mhz would be lighter on the pocket :D

Yew can but the purpose of an after market cooler is when the stock dies off or you are planning to overclock the cpu
