Wrong subforum.

But ill just make a checklist of my opinion...

CPU: Good

Cooler: Good

Mobo: Get a Z97 instead.

Memory: G.Skill Sniper Series 2133mhz 9Cl 8Gb for 75.99

Storage: Kingston SSDNows arent that great and have problems, id recommend Samsung 840 Evo. Also, there is no HDD listed.

Video Card: I'd recommend a R9 280 for that price.

Case: Good

PSU: Good if getting 280, get higher wattage

Everything else is fine

Thanks a lot. Is the R9 280x 2GB with AMD 8530fx better compared to this ? Also, Can you please suggest a mobo for this combo?

I would personally just change the CPU to 8320 because of the chepaer price, upgrade the GPU to 280X or 770 and then grab a CX600M

R9 280X + 8530fx + 990fx mobo +600cx a better option even though for a few extra bucks?

I personlly believe so, 8320 not the 8350 since it's cheaper. and you can OC the CPU to get same exact performance as the 8350.

280X is in a league of 770 perforance and GPU is more important in gaming generally than CPU

The price difference is just 10$ now between 8320 and 8350

The i5 4690K is actually better than the 8350...

OP just stick with the 4690K it will perform a lot better.

pair with 280x or 770
