What are you planning to do with the system? You have i7 cpu chosen which is a considerable price jump up from an i5 but then a smaller gpu(not bad just a lot weaker compared to the rest of the system).

Yea i'm not saying the specs are bad but you have chosen an i7 which isn't going to give you a noticeable benefit over say an i5 4670k or 4690 which would at least in my country (canada) save you 100$ that would be better spent on a bigger graphics card or just saving the $$.

For gaming spend less on the cpu and more on the gpu and a bigger psu.

^That's a nice spec, if it were mine, I'd drop the SSD and the RAM to 8Gb and put the money towards at GTX770/R9 280X or even an R9 290 if it can be squeezed in but then again, I'm a Dinosaur. ;)

I agree with this but personally I'd do 8GB of 1600mhz RAM as any faster is pointless(ex 1866mhz, 2133mhz, etc.). I would also keep the SSD, they are really something anybody building a high end system should have, worth it for sure.

But to clarify, the build you listed will work fine and is good, but you only really need 8GB of RAM, 16GB isn't necessary for gaming and should be spent on a better graphics card instead. SSD isn't necessary, but I'd keep it. Up to you though, if you care a lot about boot and load times.

Alright, i'll go with the second build then! Thank you.
