This is mostly for the purpose of Minecraft, maybe a few Steam Games, and you basic everyday computer use. I would like it to stay under $400. But it is possible for me to go about $50 over that limit. Pretty much a budget build. I would appreciate some needed changes/needs for this Mission Impossible Build. Thanks!

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/cN6Lqs Got a better motherboard, it has 2 system fan headers instead of one. I got a better cpu and gpu, its capable of playing any game out there easily.

This can play Minecraft on Far with shaders on. While streaming to Twitch. So yeah, you're covered.

PS don't go with AMD if you can, I have a 760k and i regret every minute of it because I thought it was gonna be better than it is :(. it's an okay CPU but even an i3 or a G2358 could beat it out in raw performance/gaming, and at lower heat output.

NOTE: I know the price is higher than your budget but these parts are almost always on sale.

Looks great! But does it really need the two fans in the build?
