Questions on my first build

http://pcpartpicker.com/user/EddieBu/saved/sP6mP6 This is my first time trying to build a PC and I was wondering. How's the list I came up with? Sorry if the list looks random as heck. Like I said this is my first attempt at trying this.

As of this moment I don't have the funds for this build. So I was wanting advice on what parts would be better. I would like it to be under $1,000 but I would also like to play some of the more demanding games without too much lag or over heating.

  1. 212 EVO will do you well enough unless doing serious OCing

  2. don't need a wired network adapter; mobo has onboard ethernet

  3. don't need a sound card unless doing audio production, have a speaker setup that requires it, or are an audiophile in general; mobo audio does just as well for the rest of us normies :p

  4. there are cheaper wireless adapters that will work just as well

  5. Swap CPU to the 4690K, it's cheaper and slightly better.. I believe it runs cooler and can OC higher cause they fixed the issues in the 4670k's design

Even after all that, you're still looking at about $1500 though

Ah I see. I changed a few things. I also came up with this build after looking at some other builds for awhile. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/EddieBu/saved/Tcfkcf Edit Oh and Thank you!

Since it's not time sensitive, you can wait for sales of better solid state drives. e.g. Samsung 840 Evo/850 Evo, OCZ Arc 100, OCZ Vertex 460...
