Need Some Help Reworking List

Long story short I had some help from a friend with this build list (~3 days ago) and is was around $700 and today it's peaking close to $900, I was hoping someone could help me move around some costs to get the price back down. The only thing that I want to keep on the current list is the Zowie FK1 and if possible the gtx970. This build won't be used for anything extreme games like Runescape, CS:GO and maybe some Arma.

Thank you for your help, Justin

Get the i5-4690K, I think it's quite good with it's price an' stuff.

If you can't get that, then get the AMD FX-6300, which is a good $100 with six cores.

Also, you don't need thermal paste unless you are buying an aftermarket heatsink, which is something I reccommend you do. The Hyper 212 EVO is a good choice. (I can't guarantee it will fit in there, check the specifications of the case)

Hope this helps!

The 4690k is out of my budget as of the moment but I'll definitely look into it for a future upgrade if I don't go the i7 route by then, also thanks for the tip about the paste!

Thank you! That brought down the price to a perfect amount, how's the performance on the R9?
