My first ever build! I tried to go for value rather than performance as I tend to play older games from GOG, but I do plan to upgrade to a GTX 960 when it reaches £100. My parts actually cost quite a bit less than the Partpicker price (around £510) as I used Flubit to order everything. I think that apart from the graphics card the system is quite strong for the price.

Nice entry level build! Also how well does the stock cooler do? I am planning on getting the 4590 and I'm wondering if I should get an aftermarket heat sink.

Any non K series Intel cpu will run with stock cooler since you can't overclock it
