Hello,

Your build seems pretty good but there are a few things I'd change.
Those would be:
Power Supply:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
You don't need a 1000W power supply for this build. It's way overkill. The 750W PSU I linked is also a bit overkill. Go with either that or a 650W Seasonic PSU^^
Graphics Card:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... A very efficent card. Basically the same as you have now, but for a lower price point+ it's a bit more effective cooling wise too.

Also, I noticed you don't have a cpu cooler listed. Are you planning on going with the stock cooler? If not, here's a suggestion for a new cpu cooler^^:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It should fit inside your case.

Hope this helps:)

Hi thanks for the response! The psu may be overkill but its cheaper then the one you listed, unless there is another drawback to a big psu. Unfortunately I have to keep the gpu, I bought it awhile ago and im carrying it over to the new pc.
I definitely want to add a heat sink, but i was going to wait, is that not something I should do?

Hello,

The PSu is cheaper than the one I listed, but it is not a quality one. Non quality PSU's have the danger of not delivering the said amount of Watts and they usually break more easily/last less. It is also, frankly a waste to get such a big massive "monster" to power your system. It's the same as you would use a sledgehammer to smash potatoes instead of using something smaller and more efficent^^ (this might be a bad example, lol).
The heatsink is not neccessary, but for if you're going to overclock or if you want a cooler cpu, i would definately get a heatsink then.
The cpu cooler I listed is expensive, but if you want a cheaper one go with the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo.

Hope this helps^^

Thanks for the feedback, is there something slightly less expensive that I could go with? I would like to stay in that price range as much as possible Thanks!

Hello,

Here are slightly less costing PSUs that are still very trustworthy in terms of performance, although they do not deliver the same amount of quality as the Seasonic one I linked. Some of these are still made by Seasonic and other good brands, making them very reliable and efficent.

Produces less Wats, but it's still enough to power your system:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
