Well this is it, time to buy the components of my very own Gaming PC! Cant wait to build it. This is my list. http://www.amazon.com/gp/cart/view.html/ref=nav_cart

So lucky i can get everything from one vendor, amazon. Plus i can try that amazon prime free trial so only two days of waiting.

P.S. anything i should change?

A 750ti or R265 are the minimum for decent 1080p gaming.

Need to up your GPU to at least one of those.

Edit: Like Blasted said. you still need RAM. 1600, 1.5v, CAS 9.

Suggestion would be to drop CPU Cooler and use the one that comes with the CPU. Drop the SSD and use the $ for RAM and an upgraded GPU. CPU cooler and SSD can be added later.

Agreed. Don't bother with the 740. Especially when you can get a GTX 760 for $169.

This is so much better. I'd also recommend adding an SSD. Pretty much always worth it. Best value on Amazon right now its the PNY Optima 240GB for $89.

This is fine but with a 700+ budget you don't need to downgrade to an AMD. AMD is on their way out and have no room for upgradability. Should stick with the i5 it will last him for years before real need for upgrade.

In this build you keep your i5 but dropped the CPU cooler because the stock one will do fine. Took out your SSD and gave you a HDD because 120gb is not enough for anything. Gave you a better GPU that will let you run newest games fine. Gave you a semi modular 550w PSU because you're gonna need more watts than 450. Took out the case fans because you don't really need but if you really want them can go ahead and put em back in.

He said he CAN get everything from one vendor. It doesn't say our suggestions have to be from amazon. And technically you can get everything on my part list from amazon. And to OP newegg has a free trial similar to amazon called newegg premier so you should consider using that so you can buy from newegg as well.
