Can you link directly to the system build? It just makes looking at and comparing things easier.

Thanks.

I would go with the cooler master 212 evo because it is cheaper. Also get a Z97 motherboard. Also for gaming you dont need 16 gb of ram. 8 should be enough. In addition get a hard drive that spins at 7200 rpm. It will be faster. With the money you have left get a gtx 970 because that is what is going to help you get those high fps.
