Hello. Totally new to this, blah blah blah, absolutely lost even after doing a few weeks of research into a self build so I thought I'd ask experts and enthusiasts alike for some advice :)  As the title suggests I'm looking for advice on a system to run Planetside 2 on ultra setting(1080p or 1400), with a view to playing upcoming MMOs and possibly streaming with investment down the road. Heres my build;

Im aware that some of it is overkill. I dont plan to overclock any more than perhaps the manufacturer's out of the box boost. Comes in at about £1700 but could do with cutting a few £s off the tag. So any suggestions, or total rebuilds are welcome. Im based in Ireland so hopefully delivery etc wont cripple me. Thank you in advance.

If you're not going to overclock, just use the stock cooler. You can also use a much less-expensive H87 or B85 motherboard; Asus is my preferred brand, with ASRock a close #2.
Especially with a single graphics card, you won't need the extra space and cooling of a full tower, and can use an ATX or even Micro-ATX build.

One thing I would also suggest is go with 2X8G ram instead of 4x4G ram. You can overclock better and have expansion capability.
