One of my best friend's wanted to build a computer for his girlfriend for Christmas. He asked if I would pick parts, and build it for him so... this is what I picked.

Did you buy the Z97 mobo thinking of future CPU upgrades? Nice build for the price, she should be happy. What games are gonna be played on this rig?

The G3258 can be overclocked, and easily oc's to about 4.5 ghz if not more, which brings it to mid i3-i5 speeds, it's an amazing processor.

I know it's a fantastic CPU, especially for that price. However, you can overclock it quite decently on lower budget chipsets. Here is a pretty handy list and info: http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2389948

Yes and no. I think the G3258 can be more than adequate right now, but I'm sure at some point she's going to upgrade to an i7 and a 980 haha. I think she's pretty happy. Thanks for the positive comments! Not entirely sure yet. She is just starting to get into gaming. Right now we have been playing some Diablo 3.

Oh man, I haven't played D3 for a couple months. Damned work, getting in the way of my gaming! :D I was actually ranked as a Witch Doctor (I was 922/1000 for solo Grater Rifts for quite a few weeks).
