Im pretty computer adept but i've never built my own PC. This will be my first shot at it, would just like some opinions!

PC will be for general use (web browsing, video watching, etc.) , gaming (AAA titles and indie).

Just looking for possibly better components i should look into, cheaper prices, or opinions. Thanks!

You dont need 16GB of ram, just get 8GB and youll be fine. Everything else is fine!

I chose 16GB with the thought of future proofing. I'll look into getting 8GB though, thanks!

Get the FX-9370 cause its an 8-core ,you will get 4.4Ghz ,and its cheaper then the i5

you can get the 4690k up to 4.5Ghz in addition to having better single core performance.

8 cores doesn't mean it is better.

4-core by next year wont hold up with the new standards for the up coming years

Yes everything gets outdated. It'll do just fine though.

I can play borderlands 2 with max settings on 5 year old GPU and a duo core processor. It's old but it still works.

but it wont be as good a an 8-core, plus it is cheaper then the intel series

Most games don't even take advantage of 4 cores.

Thanks for the reply. Tbh the GPU was killing me inside because $600 is really pricey. I will definitely look into your suggestions, thanks again.
