I did some adjustments to my initial build and I have come up with this.
- I added R9 290 instead of a GTX 770. I read about the overall positive feedback this chip set has created.
- I found a cheaper SSD and RAM which lowered my cost slightly. (Thanks to a member's suggestion)
Concern: 1. I have added the i5 4690K. The price is only a few more dollars than the 4670K. My only concern is I have no plans to overclock since this is my first build. Should I get an unlocked CPU still? And, should I even bother with a CPU cooler even if I purchased an unlocked CPU?
