That previous build is a pretty good one but gaming won't benefit from 16GB of RAM.

Mine is a little bit more but includes a better case, cooler, power supply, and larger HD:

If you are not going to overclock you can get an i5 3570 without the 'k' and an h77 motherboard and stick with the stock cooler. You can save about £120.

Yeah but then there's no point to that as you're overpaying for an extra +.1 GHz increase - which doesn't really make much of a difference in the long run.

I just meant an i5 without the k. An i5 3470 would do just fine

edit: only if he does'nt want to overclock..otherwise your build is fine.

why the need for i5 for minecraft, sims 3 etc. sure he said no price limit but why get more than one would need to play those games.
personally i would suggest an AMD APU based build around an A10-5800k and radeon 6670 gddr5 with 8 gb of ddr3 2133 memory etc.
it would cost less than $600 to build and i think its perfect in his case.
why recommend an i5 and 7870?
even an i3 and 7850 would be plenty for those games.

So why don't you put a system around an A10-5800k together to give him some more options. I am not an AMD fan, but that's not to say they are not any good. I personally wouldn't build any machine without at least an i5..but that is just me. This is the trouble when they don't put a budget together. Specs are very subjective without a budget or personal preferences.

Games like Starcraft and Sim City don't require a ton of graphics power. I'd actually be inclined to agree with the above post and go with the A10-5800K in this situation - the onboard video is more than enough to handle it.

you could drop the i3 to a pentium without much performance hit and upgrade to 7850
