Hello guys!
I'm chilean (sorry for my bad english) and i'm looking for a new desktop PC. I want to buy some parts of it in USA, and i just armed the parts i want to buy at www.pcpartpicker.com (it's an awesome website).

So here is the link: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Benja.13/saved/fMvqqs

I'm going to buy the other parts in Chile, to avoid too much weight on the trip.
Anyhow, here is the rest of my build:

- Samsung Monitor LED 24''
- Genius Subwoofer 5.1 SW-G5.1 3500
- Cooler Master HAF X Black s/F Case
- Razer Anansi MMO keyboard
- Razer Mamba mouse

I've always played on console, so I'm pretty new in the PC world (and excited, too). So I need some feedback, comments, suggestions, everything that could help me.
I would appreciate any suggestions from you guys ! Thanks !

Well, your desired build is very varied and may not run well. Intel and AMD are 2 different companies and so having an Intel processor and an AMD graphics card will cause issues to your PC. I have a good AMD processor (don't know what the name of it is) and a AMD Radeon 270x graphics card and it works wonderfully, if it helps. I also know nothing about MSI xD so I can't help you with that.

Made some changes. 16gb RAM is not needed for gaming. i7 again makes not difference in gaming an i5 is fine. The price on the original build was $1300 so I tried to stay within that.

EDIT: Dont listen to QwanDoser the difference in pairing an AMD GPU +AMD CPU vs AMDGPU + Intel CPU is minuscule and will only really show up in benchmarks no real time difference will be noticable if it really is true which I've never heard of this. And only someone who doesnt know much about PCs would tell you to go with a 270x on a $1300 budget

I would go for the EVGA GTX 770. It has a similar price to the graphics card you listed. Also, spend a bit more to get the 4790k. Only costs a bit more, has higher base and turbo speed, and a bit of overclocking won't hurt if you didn't originally plan to. If you're only going to use your pc for gaming, then 8 gb of ram is enough. You only need 16 gigs if you are using applications such as adobe after effects. As for the peripherals, don't get the Mamba unless you really need wireless. The Deathadder 2013 is better in almost every way. I would go for a blackwidow instead of the anasi, since it's mechanical and you don't need that many macros. Good luck with your new PC!

Its perfectly okay to have an AMD graphics card and an Intel processor in the same computer. Many computers do. It is just a gaming pc myth.
