So this is my first PC and I'd like some help and advice on what I've put together. The build was originally someone elses and i made a few tweaks.
I want to play games like Arma 3, DayZ and BF4 etc on higher settings and hope to start recording videos for youtube but idk if this build is good enough for major stuff just yet. I'd like room for upgrades and things over time as well. The build includes a monitor and keyboard and etc.

it is my revision of your build

better mobo, H81 doesnt have pcie 3.0, only 2.0
gtx 760 4GB is a waste, better buy 2GB or GTX 770
cheaper ram. for non OC build, any brand will do
