Hey guys this is what im set on having as my first build. Need it for school ( computer science major ) and will be doing some casual gaming, Far Cry 3/4 , Shadows of mordor etc... Needed to know where i can cut down the price without sacrificing to much performance.

Thanks in advance!!

You can change the motherboard, a H97/B85 will do the job, the Z97 is for overclock, and with that CPU, i think you will not do that. You can change the power supply too, 500W is enough, but you can go with the the 600 if the price is almost the same. You don't need that thermal compound too.
