Good gaming pc build? (Need answers ASAP please)

Hey guys! Im new to building computers so i wanted your help to decide if this build i created would run minecraft max settings, 60+ fps while skyping. I may also try to play some fps shooters so how would this hold up with those. Im confident that i chose good parts but i wanted second opinions. My max budget is $900 but i have a monitor and peripherals. Any help is appreciated i want the most fps i can get!

  2. GTX 750 ti is a weak card, a bit unbalanced with i5 cpu

    you can start from here
    i left $100 headroom, you can use it to change the gpu to GTX 770 or add 120GB SSD Crucial M500

    yep this is a good pc right here
  4. Just realized, you're going to need a CPU cooler to OC. Acceptable ones start around $30 and are the hyper212 and xigmatek gaia(slightly better.)

  6. Ok thanks for the help, but can you explain how woltej1s build is slightly more powerful then mine? Is it because his gpu is better but his mono and other stuff is slightly cheaper?
  7. AMD RADEON- thanks for the reply, i plan on trying to over lock though so the i5 4440 would not work :/

    i think i will try a combination woltej1s design and mine? Btw, wolt are you sure the mobo you picked will work for me without doing any "experiments"? And would your case have enough room? Sorry for all the questions im only 13 and new to this stuff so thanks

    with your budget, i dont think it is wise to pick oc build
    it will limit your budget to gpu

    i5 non OC + GTX 770 is better than i5 OC + gtx 760
    it applies only if you want gaming pc, all about FPS and performance. but if you want to use the build to learn OC, then it is okay
    if only you could afford i5 oc build + Gtx 770
  12. With the 4670k Expansion Options
    PCI Express Revision 3.0
    PCI Express Configurations ‡ Up to 1x16, 2x8, 1x8/2x4
    Max # of PCI Express Lanes 16
    so down the line if you get a dual video card it will only run at 8x a card

    Ok, i guess i will not OC so should i just get the non oc version of the intel chip i picked? And a cheaper mobo?
