This is my first time building a gaming PC and want feedback on the build. I would like to not go over the price im at now and also would like to stay with Intel CPU. Thanks you feedback is greatly appreciated.
First, why are you getting a 4690K if you arent going to overclock?
Second, switch that 750ti with a R7 265
what would you recommend for a cpu then? sorry im new to building pc's.
I'd recommend a 4690.
Just curious.. for building on a budget, why do you insist on an Intel cpu?
ive heard that it is better for gaming and thats what i mainly plan to use it for. could you recommend something better perhaps like amd cpu with a compatible motherboard.
I'm not an expert at this. I took a 6 year hiatus from building and went console (don't judge me...) but PCPP is making it easy to readjust. From my understanding, less than $800 should be an AMD build. A certain degree of that depends on your comfort level with over clocking. Below is an overclock 'friendly' amd build, similar to the one I plan to use shortly.

I hated to change the case, because the Spec 01 is what I plan to use as well, but my budget is 780, not 700. below is the build I plan on using.
I have heard it is better for gaming intended purposes.
I have heard it is better 'speed per core' and a stronger cpu generally. I've just also heard anything less than 800 should be amd not intel because money could be used elsewhere, gpu for example.
Edit: I don't mean to step on your toes by any means. It was just my view on things.
youre right about that. id stick with intel ..
how big of a power supply do i need could i get a 500w instead of 600w
The build I put together now has an estimated wattage of 373 watts. Even if you overclock the GPU you're not even going to pass over 460 watts.
if i replaced my power supply with the one you have would that work. Also would the the cpu and gpu in my build work together. thanks for the fast reply and great feedback.
The cpu and gpu you had originally would work together fine, and the power supply that i listed would work for yours as well. The build i put together for you gives you considerably better gaming performance as a result of a much more powerful gpu though.
