This is my First real build I had a Dell from high school that i upgraded to the point i could then bought a laptop, and then I went with this Build you see now.

My parts choice is really what my friends had for sale. I think i put together a decent comp for what was available to me. Later on i want to get a aftermarket cpu cooler for my comp, a modular power supply, and maybe some cable extenders to clean up the case a bit better.

Comp is gonna be used to play games, music and stream. Not sure what it can handle right now haven't had time to run test yet but have windows on SSD and boots fasst like a marsupial.

Also feel free to leave comments and suggestions. Always looking for ways to better improve this monster of parts.

-EDIT- The card in pictures was a D.o.A. my friend gave so i went a bought a R9 just don't have a pic of it

Not bad!

The 2600k is still a strong chip today plus it can be overclocked.

I wish mine was a k model :)

I have non k 2600 and paired with a r9 280 it runs bf4 ultra at 50+ fps and GTA5 on ultra at 60+ fps

The video card paired with that should play most games on high to ultra with good fps.

Hope you have fun with it!

If i plan on overclocking later on what would be a good recommendation for a cpu cooler then?

You could use the ever popular Cooler Master Hyper 212 evo.

Or on the forum here there is a CPU cooling page.

I'm using a Cooler Master hyper 103 and it works ok on my non k 2600 @ 4.2 GHz. Keeps it about 65 degrees under load.

The 212 is usually recommend as best price performance cooler.

There are better but the price starts going up.
