Hello guys, This is my first post ever and i wanted to ask you guys about my pc build , let me show you:

[CPU] : Intel Core i5 4670K
[GPU] : Gigabyte GTX 760 2GB
[MOTHERBOARD] : help me here please
[RAM] : Kingston HyperX 2x4GB
[HDD] : Western Digital Blue 1TB
[SSD] : help me here, i dont think i will use more than 120gb
[POWER SUPPLY] : Antec Neo Eco 620C (620W) "80PLUS Bronze"
[CASE] : help me here
[COOLER] : I've read that EVO212 was very good but what you think about

So as you can see i dont know really a LOT about pc components and i need your help. I need a good pc to play games with good quality , ive been playing games on a macbook the last 3 years and well .. im tired of 15-20 fps i want something powerful to play, render videos, animate, etc mostly for gaming.

Note: Unfortunatelly im not in USA where everything is cheap and easy to find , im at Chile , yeah and its hard to find good components , i used this webpage "www.solohardware.net" to find some components.

Thanks for your patient guys , i just want to be a member of pc master race

Overall, it looks quite good. For a motherboard, Asrock is a decent low end brand, and ASUS comes highly recommended at most price brackets. I would simply find one that suits your tastes. You may, however, require more if you plan to overclock.

SSD: Samsung and Corsair have good track records. Honestly, as long as it isn't a no-name, any of the following will probably do quite nicely:
Kingston
Sandisk
Crucial
Corsair
Samsung

Case: Dependent on the motherboard, you'll need to pick a case that meets the standard. Otherwise, see if you can find internal measurements for it via a website like PCPartpicker.net. From there, you can figure out if it'll fit your card or not. A fairly large case that's usually a safe bet for ATX/mATX systems is the Antec 302 Gaming Case. It's a simple black, but it's large enough to hold most hardware with plenty of room to upgrade.

The EVO 212 is a decent cooler, I just installed one on a build I did for my younger brother. My strong recommendation is to put the back bracketing on first, get the Mobo seated and most wiring done, and then attach the cooler. The pea-in-the-middle of thermal paste should do the trick.

Remember: That cooler comes with "tape" on the back bracket and other stuff. DO NOT REMOVE IT. This is electrically insulating and designed to avoid shorting your mobo - it's constructed so that shouldn't happen, but it's a good additional precaution.

Anyhow, I hope this shed some light on some of these things. I prefer to give advice over seek parts, but you'll surely get some other people to do the rest of the footwork.

Also, get the 4690k instead of the 4670k... it needs a z97 Motherboard but it has MAJOR heat problems fixed in it....

Well the as i said the only way i can buy components its by solohardware.com , so :

1. They just have the i5-4690 , without K , what you recommend me then, The 4670K or the 4690

2. Here its the webpage with the filter of Z97 [[ http://www.solohardware.net/motherboard/search/?min_pri... ]]
Can you help me to choose one? That would be extremely helpful. Thanks!
