    That PSU is bad, but otherwise the build looks pretty nice.
    The PSU I'd recommend (has lots of headroom too): http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1750snlb9
    This is the keyboard I use: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/mad-catz-keyboard-mcb43107n0b2041
    Don't own these but I've used them a few times and they seem pretty good: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/logitech-headphones-981000257

    Great build, the only thing I would change is the cx 750w power supply because it uses Chinese Capacitors.
  3. ok i've changed the psu : )
  4. Looks good to me :)
    Just to be sure, what exact SSD are you going to get?
  5. If you are getting an SSD I recommend Samsung's 840 Evo, it is a great well rounded SSD

    Great build, you said you were in the market for a led backlit keyboard and I know just the one! http://www.amazon.com/CM-Storm-QuickFire-TK-Mechanical/dp/B00A378L4C/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1405126196&sr=1-1&keywords=cooler+master+tk
    I am using it right now (cherry Blue) and I am very impressed. Looks greate too!
  7. oh i thought he said a xfx psu was bad i was like what get out of here (lol). theres backlit keyboard mouse combos that are good like cooler master.
  8. a i5 4690k make sure you have a good cooler like hyper 212 or h 80i. also the r9 290 will kill any game except for crysis 3 at 4k but even then can handle itself
  9. I want to buy that processor and that vga too, i was thinking how to build a gaming computer, and i found i5 4690k and r9 290, same like yours

    you came to pc building at the right time when prices have dropped. I suggest you either get a 980/970(newest cards but cash grabs), r9 290 still offers great performance or wait it out for a couple more months like me(r9 390x/380x and i5/i7 broadwell which is better than the 4690k)
  11. @kunthakenthe I know the r9 390x video card, It's a freaking awesome gaming video card, before i want to buy r9 290, i want to buy this, but the price is more expensive than r9 290 right?

    yeah its coming out january-march next year(r9 390x), but you can still get the r9 290s for around 200-300$ where the 390x will launch 500$ probably.
