Are you wanting to save money, or what?

Basically any opinions whether to make it better for the price or making it cheaper

Well if you only want to do 1080 and not beyond, a 290x is overkill. An i7 is also overkill for gaming too.

i plan on going 1440p in the future. Also, i want an i7 for multi threading which games in the future will be using

I only know of one game right now that actively uses hyperthreading, and none of the ones I know in development use hyperthreading or intend to.

Your build will be more than capable of handling anything thrown at it though.

Agreed when comparing a I7 over I5 in gaming there is no difference of note* Now if your programming graphics or using some kind of rendering software then I would suggest getting the I7..However if the $100 more isn't an issue then there ya go, but then I ask why skimp out on the SSD.. as the Samsung Evo is a much better choice?

I just dont want to have buy a new cpu when hyper threading does come to games.
