You're closer to $1k based on the link. What are you trying to use this PC for? Will you be overclocking? How important is noise?

Well i dont NEED to overclock, but its nice to have options. Noise isnt really important to me but id LIKE it to be quiet. Btw im gunna be playing bf4, minecraft, gMod, gta 5 when it comes out to pc, maybe metro: last light & bioshock infinite. Thanks for asking! Also, im gonna be playing at 1080p very high/ultra

You don't need that mobo for that CPU, and I'd rather use an 8320 for this price point than an i5 and put the money into a GPU, but here you go.

But will the computer play games at 1080p ultra without lag? Thats my goal for this build

Both are easily addressed. That particular board is very cheap with the rebate right now, and is about the price of the cheapest H97s, so there wasn't much point in changing from his original selection.

As per the SSD, it's per my opinion that in this price range, the money is better allocated to either the CPU or GPU, or both. It's the decision for better FPS or better boot and load times, and more time is spent playing the game than loading the next level, so...

Pretty good but i think an amd fx8350 is better than that i3 when its 8core and 4.0GhZ
