:hello:  I'm here because I know most of you would understand this more then me.
I've done a lot of reading on CPU's and stuff but none the less I should
get a second opinion I didn't build this. This was a "buy it" but I like the
specifications actually except for the i5 processor I wanted an i7 processor
but I've a budget so I'm okay with an i5 processor -- the case is "Corsair Carbide Series 400R Mid-Tower Gaming Case"
I honestly hate it looks a bit ugly to me...for +$34 I can get a better looking case but does it improve/decrease performance If so
please tell me and thanks! :) 


P.S. The other case that I want for +$34 is an Azza Fusion 3000 Full-Tower Gaming Case w/ 1x 140mm & 2x 120mm fans, front USB 3.0, HDD Easy Swap, & 360MM liquid cooling ready case

Get a 2500k for gaming, and beef up your GPU to at least a 560ti or 6870. Otherwise you'll be overpowered in the CPU department and underpowered in the GPU department.

I like your build though I'm only 15 and I'm not a handy man so I can't buy it off a site and actually build it although it'd be a great experience I bet sadly I can't do that I rather have the assembly people build it...Anyway I can make those specs on cyberpowerpc?

Go to youtube and type in how to build a computer and watch the videos by newegg. It's pretty easy. I'd come to your house and build it for you but I'm pretty sure that you'll be over 30 minutes away.
