I need help or opinions regarding my build. I'm looking to spend around $1k USD / CND until the end of the month.
I want to use the i5-4690 as it's new and a Z97 motherboard to have the possibility to upgrade. I don't know how to overclock and don't wish to do it.
Should I use a H100i instead? Should I get the OS elsewhere? Is the i5-4690 worth the price or should I stick with the i5-4670? Would you recommend a better motherboard or graphics card (better price, etc.)? I know the case is my own opinion but is there anything negative about what I chose here? I'm looking for a full tower / mid tower case for around $100.
