http://pcpartpicker.com/p/xttGHx this is a first build any feedback would be appreciated this is for running games on high settings
For a gaming focused build the usual recommendation is to get a more expensive gpu than your cpu, for an intel rig around the $1200 mark atm it's often a 4690k & nvidia 970 combo.
8gig is the general ram target unless you're building a workstation of some description, I used the cash that freed up for the usual budget cpu air cooler so you can oc the 4690k.
Swapped out the 750w bronze rated psu for a lower wattage (970 is super power efficient) gold rated unit, gold efficiency will save you money on your electricity cost vs the bronze.

hi, thanks for the help would I need 16gig to host private servers on minecraft with Mods? And this cases 4 built in fans would I need the case fan?
Sorry I've no idea about minecraft servers, maybe ask at some mc forum/etc.
You probably won't need any extra fans over the 4 that come with the case, so yeah you could probably drop the extra 140mm aerocool.
