Made a new pc build, anything you'd do differently?

My cousin's budget is 2000 - 2200, he asked me to build him a computer with that. This is what I came up with, is there anything you'd do differently? He has a keyboard and mouse already, same with OS. Thanks in advance. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Slomoeshon/saved/NNQLrH

Yup, way too much, you are paying for big OC stability then running a 6 core on air cooling. Is this for gaming, or rendering/editing? If it's for gaming, get an i5/Z97 set up with a 1440 monitor to make use of that 980. If it's pro use, get 4x4GB RAM to make use of the four memory channels. Also, two grand budget with not even a boot SSD?

you paste the wrong link. We are not specifically looking at your part list, but rather ours since that just sends to our "partlist"

you are over paying on some pieces that will not give you the premium feeling that you are paying for. With a budget like this, your system should have alot more in it e.g. an sdd. Give or take, this is what I am saying. You have to effectively use your funds so that you can acomplish a premium feeling. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/TGfgqs

Why not the I7 4790K?

it was not a firm recommendation. It was a quick choice of parts and to see what i can quickly get for the money. You will also notice that I did not add a case, this arbitrary as well. However, I am sure that this system would provide a better experience the one he had at first.

will you check out my post in the parts list section? The title is Analyze this. I was just wondering about the cpu choice considering the price and performance.
