Hi, I just started taking IT classes and I haven't learned much from hardware yet. But my old computer died on me so I need a new one. I want to build one that will last a few years, but more importantly, will meet my requirements. I don't game that much, but when I do I want to play high-end games. Such as Battlefield 4, and Assassin's creed Rogue.

Does this look like the right list? and can anything be changed? Thanks in advance for your time and help :) PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

I'd steer away from lite-on optical drives if you can, from reviews they can be a bit hit or miss whether they work correctly or not.

Okay thanks ill check into that, anything else? Something that can cut the cost by a bit?

Oh crap I just noticed something, you have an overclockable cpu with a motherboard that won't let you overclock, you need a z97 chipset but you have a h97. That might add a bit of price on unfortunately. However, if you don't want to overclock you can get a less expensive cpu that can't overclock.

You could maybe get a less expensive case or power supply.
