I have made a build for my first gaming computer. I live in America, North Carolina. Use mail in rebates. Do not plan to overclocking, and don't want this build to go over 900$ is there any changes I could make thank you. http://pcpartpicker.com/list/L7wPJV

Honestly, I wouldn't recommend a H110 board for gaming, due to the big PCI-E limitation. (x6 @2.0) B150 and H170 are good improvements, both being able to run PCI-E 3.0.

That will most likely slow your GPU down in some GPU intensive games.

The build is good for the most part, so here, with a B150 board:

EDIT: If it absolutely MUST be under $900, then put the i5-6400 in there, as you only lose 200MHz on all cores under load, not 500, due to Turbo Boost.
