Note: the prices are with tax.

I'm about halfway from finishing my build but was hoping if all these parts seem good enough to run a good long term machine. Do I need to add/ subtract anything? I won't be Overclocking unti the summer when I have time and it's primarily for gaming but my wife wanted the powerful cpu for a program she uses that's very clucky intensive. Also, I'll be getting a second monitor too. First time builder here

motherboard like that should have an option in BIOS to do it for you, really. Takes perhaps a few minutes, tops.

wanted the powerful cpu for a program she uses that's very clucky intensive

i7 won't help unless whatever she's using is going to take advantage of 8 cores

this R9 290 costs about as much, should do you better

May want to check and see if your cooler can actually fit in the case, PCPP seems to be unable to verify that
