Hey, i need some suggestions whether the parts i picked are good. My budget right now is $1600 CAD and I'm buying all my parts from newegg. This PC build is mainly for gaming and just want some other peoples suggestion whether something doesn't fit or i should swap something for a better part. Thanks

Link for my build : http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/V9ZMFd

Thanks for the feedback! :D

Overall dude it looks pretty sweet, one suggestion would be to add an SSD since it goes to 1450 and not 1600 CAD for your budget. And maybe if you can squeeze it, get a better quality power supply like an RM series if possible for some cable management. Lastly, if you can squeeze out a K series processor because you do have a z97 motherboard, so you can do some overclocking. P.S. that CPU cooler will work for now but if you can swing that too, maybe add something from Noctua like an x61 or an NHD16 or 14.

Hey thank you so much for the feedback! Definitely going to look into a SSD. And didn't even realize I could over clock my PC thanks again for the help!

No problem! Anytime dude, I was once in your shoes so I get it. Just make sure you get the 4790k and not the normal 4790 as it can't over clock.

I would go for the more recent Skylake platform. on the 1151 socket.

And I would get an i5 for gaming.
