I'm looking for a computer that can run a few games (league of legends, maybe some shooters) on high quality with at least 60fps. My
budget is $920. I can't go above that price.
If you guys have any suggestions, please comment it below.
Many thanks,
Daniel

Is the stock fan for the 4690k good enough or will I have to buy one?

Well first off the build is over $920 that you gave us.... And secondly are you looking to overclock?
You can also save yourself some money by getting a 750 ti that's only $150. That way you can get your build price back under your budget. Then you can spend some extra money on a nice mouse.

If you want to OC at all you will need to buy one... I have one added into my build. I edited it putting a different video card in to save you another $15.

Ok I made the changes for a non-overclock build - was able to upgrade the GPU to a GTX 770 and still keep it under $900.

Why are you trying to get him to lower the GPU in a GAMING build... where GPU is pretty much the main thing he needs to put money into?

I had mail-ins turned off so when I looked at the build it was way over what it should have been. So that was the closest he could get without sacraficing the CPU

A build like this would be much better for you. It has a better graphics card, processor and power supply (The CX series aren't good) .

Yes either the GTX 770 or r9 280x... I prefer nvidia but either one would work.

Either(mine or Ytyoussef's) build would be good, mine has a better CPU (200Mhz faster) but also costs $15 more... Other than that they are pretty much the same, can't really go wrong with either one.

The better CPU won't make any difference in gaming, while the gpu would. He would get better gaming performance with the build I posted above. Oh and you shouldn't get the corsair power supply, it is not a good power supply, the XFX is much better.

How would he get better performance exactly? my build has the same GPU in it... Changed the PSU out awhile back... the only difference in our builds is you picked a different CPU/motherboard and HDD.
