    What's your overall budget? I recommend going for a cheaper case to allow for some better parts. So assuming all the parts you suggested are options I will let you know what I would choose.

    Case - Your preference
    CPU - 4690k (very similar in gaming performance to a 4790k, not worth the extra cash)
    RAM - G.Skill Ripjaws X
    Storage - 120GB Samsung SSD (for your OS and a few games/applications), 1TB HDD for all your other programs
    Motherboard - Gigabyte Gaming 5, or the Extreme 3 if you want to keep costs lower.
    PSU - I'd recommend an Antec EVGA or XFX PSU if possible.
    GPU - Asus GeForce GTX 970.

    All those parts seem pretty good though, but like I said let us know your overall budget and we can suggest the best parts for the price.
  3. So thank you in advance. My initial budget was of 1000€ but i already saw i wont be able to keep it there so i will need to go a bit go a bit higher. Not much i hope. Ill also provide further info. During the next ~1.5year ill be able to add some extra stuff i have on my mind (2nd ram stick, cpu cooler and 2nd gpu eventually) so I need a good mobo for that and a case that allows me that. The gaming5 seems the better option for the price. I can need some help regarding the psu. I have a cx series there but I heard a bit bad about them, and its the part i understand the less. The part I want the better performance is the gpu. With 10€ of difference between the g1 and the strix which one is better? Will the supposedly more powerfull g1 have a real world impact over the strix? Thanks in advance :-)

    I assume you are going to play all graphics heavy games like far cry 4 on ultra 60p?
    if you don't mind playing those games on high 60P, you could save yourself alot of money.
    What CX psu do you have?

    also where are you from?

    I don't have.. i said have as in the parts prices. im building this from scratch. i will be playing CS:GO.. just kidding. i will indeed look for the ultra every time i can, not farcry 4 but stuff equally demanding maybe even more. i will probably bring this build to the knees within the next 6 months anyway with the Witcher 3.
    im from Portugal btw.
    this was the CX i was Talking about "Corsair CX 750W - 109€". but as i read reviews and stuff i noticed that the CX series is something to avoid if possible since its like the low cost of corsair and that they arent much reliable.
    I really want to go the best in Graphical power (best price/performance and the 970 is just that) because i dont want to settle for lower because for that i have the PS4 :P
