Here's my build: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/naaDONi/saved/NfvNnQ

CPU: Intel Core i5-4690 3.5GHz Quad-Core Motherboard: Asus H97-PLUS ATX LGA1150 Memory: Kingston Fury Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Storage: Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB 2.5" SSD, Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 970 4GB STRIX Case: Cooler Master 690 III ATX Mid Tower Power Supply: Corsair 650W ATX12V / EPS12V Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (OEM) (64-bit) Monitor: Asus VN247H-P 23.6"

Primary usage will be gaming, most demanding game will probably be skyrim + mods, won't be doing any video rendering or anything like that. Are there any compatibility issues, any improvements you'd make? Thanks!

If you wanted, you could change the cpu and mobo to allow overclocking, but I assume you picked them because you weren't going to. You should probably go for a 9 cas RAM at 1600 like these it's cheaper and faster. You could probably get a smaller ssd and a lower wattage PSU.

Hey. This build looks great. Only minor issue would be that your SSD isn't the fastest it could be, But its barely slower than this one
