Building a new PC need help figuring out the parts

Hello everyone :)

I'm not new to building my own pc's but its been 1.5 years since I did any research or made any upgrades so I need some sharp peeps here to share their information with me please :)

I have a small budget for this PC as my work place is giving me the cash worldwide shipping does not work with papers I need so I can only buy locally (Lithuania)

So here is what I got on my list for a new gaming/server PC

MBO: ASRock Z97 PRO4, Z97, DualDDR3-1600, SATA3, RAID, HDMI, DVI, D-Sub, ATX

CPU: CPUCI5 3500/6M S1150 BX/4690 BX80646I54690 S R1QH IN

RAM: DDR3 Crucial Ballistix 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz CL8 1.5V

CPU CO: CPU Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

PSU: PSU Corsair CX 750W, Modular, 80 Plus Bronze, 120mm Fan

Now the question is does all this work out great or should I change something I can add up to 100$ max (cheaper is better) :)

Thank you for your time helping me figure this out

  1. Yeah it all fits together and will work fine my only concern is if you're thinking about gaming you will need a decent GPU such as GTX 650ti or R9 270x for low end games (lol, wow and internet games) or if you play newer games like Watchdogs and COD borderlands and so on you will need something a bit better for high end graphics but both of the mentioned will still run them at medium but I would advise the R9 270x fantastic GPU for the Price go for one made by Sapphire

    1. If a H97 board is cheaper, get that. 4690 can not overclock, so no point having a z97 board. Or buy 4690K or 4670K.

    2.If you buy the 4690, no point getting the aftermarket cooler. Stock one is good enough. But the 212 Evo if you buy the K processor.

    3. I would avoid the CX. I am guessing you will get a mid to high end graphics card, as you choose 750watts. The following PSU's are good

    1. Seasonic M12II 750 W
    2. Evga b2 750 W.
  3. Thank you guys, I already have a MSI GTX 770 OC 2GB (love it) :)
    About the CPU its for 1 year (not my money so I cant choose anything better at that price rage and better ones are too expensive atm...)

    Thank you for the PSU offer will check it out as I need a modular one for my HAF 912 case (I hate loose cables)


    EDIT: Ok got a new list of parts managed to squeeze few bucks :)

    MBO: ASRock Z97 PRO4, Z97, DualDDR3-1600, SATA3, RAID, HDMI, DVI, D-Sub, ATX

    RAM: DDR3 Crucial Ballistix 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz CL8 1.5V

    CO: CPU Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

    CPU: CPUCI5 3500/6M S1150 BX/4690K BX80646I54690K S R21A IN

    PSU: Seasonic M12II Bronze 750 750W 80 Plus Bronze retail


    And I have a GTX 770 and HAF 912 case and 1 TB WD black so all this fits ? :D
  4. All will fit and will perform great.
    The only thing missing in there is an SSD :)
