yeah, the build that Egl suggested is a pretty good build, but i would spend a bit more and get a GTX 770 or if you plan on getting a second graphics card an AMD card so you can Crossfire without having to buy a new board because that one doesnt support SLI... like an R9 280/270X

Do you really need everything from amazon? It makes it an expensive build.Do those credits weigh up aganst the price difference with other retailers?
Like with the next you could buy most parts from amazon exluding the motherboard,ram and case,you could buy those from newegg.
