Thats a fairly solid build, try give a little more info about it.. budget and types of games.. do you intend to upgrade in the future.. how long you intend to have it last for.

Budget is under $1,100
types of games FPS, RTS, RPG, Racing, really anything from the highest production value AAA games to the lowest budget indie games
life span as long as possible and upgrading down the road would be nice but not necessary

All I would suggest it getting the i5-4670K rather than the 4430, It will preform better and you have the ability to overclock for that extra performance, and probably last that bit longer, it will cost you $50 more though. But apart from that you should be sweet.

Hey thanks for the suggestion I think I will get the i5-4670K just for the extra performance.
