Hi guys, how does this setup look? I would like to keep it around 1100 bux.

I like to play Arma, Dayz, rust etc.

I own all the peripherals and a case. Thanks.

If by chance you have a Micro Center within driving distance the 4790K will be priced $279.99 there.

If you're not also using it for rendering, you're spending too much on the CPU and CPU overclocking (expensive mobo components and too little on the GPU.

A build with a $70ish name brand motherboard with all solid capacitors (not "solid CPU capacitor"), $500 r9-290x, and i5-4670 non-k will perform much better and cost about the same. The i5 won't bottleneck at least one GPU upgrade.

Thank you for the info. I think I may move to a 4670K
