I would like a bit of help regarding this build, is there anything cheaper that does the same thing, os there other things that can be changed? Overall goal is to lower cost without getting a useless machine but also leave room for upgrading when in a few years ill eventually need new parts. Im using it for high end gaming, battlefield, wildstar, crysis, watchdogs etc.

Acctually I forgot to add ram. But why the 2 vid cards. I know it will boost gameplay but if I left out 1 would it be unplayable?

Sorry. Would you mind checking this one? It's cheaper which is my overall goal. I'd like this to get closer to 1k without hurting myself that much

And could I drop the cooling unit for the stock parts. If they even come with em

I noticed a few notes first off:

You don't have ram in your build, so I'm going to assume you already have ram

I don't know why you have a blu ray writer, but if this is just for the sake of installing windows, you can easily do that via a usb installer (there are guides for this online).

For gaming, you don't need more than an i5.

With that out of the way, here's my suggestions:
