Hi all,
I would like to buy a pc for about 1000$+tx for gaming

I don't build a desktop for a while so can you tell me if it's correct (compatibility) and your comments are welcome. (not overclocked)


Intel Core i7 4790 (i5 for game is good enough?)
Asus H97M
SSD 240GB Kingston Hyper X 3K
GeForce GTX75Ti 2Gb
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz CL9 DIMMs (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9)

Thanks for your comments
 
That 750 ti is not really what I would be looking at for a gaming PC what all needs to be included and are you in the US or where?
OS. monitor , keyboard, speakers and everything or what?
And no the i7 is eating into your performance money for almost 0 returns for gaming.

Ditch the i7, not worth your money, put that money into a graphics card. I don't care if you're the Queen of England, do NOT get an i7 in your price range, it does not affect gaming performance enough to justify the $350+ price. If you want just gaming swap the i7 for an FX 8370 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113284&cm_re=fx_8350-_-19-113-284-_-Product and the motherbaord for http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131851&cm_re=asus_990fx-_-13-131-851-_-Product Asus 990FX board, that makes $300, keep the SSD, that makes $430, ram, $510, and then a Asus 780 Ti- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121838&cm_re=gtx_980-_-14-121-838-_-Product or a 980 if you want the power savings for a little more. Nearly $1000, and a MASSIVE performance increase.

A GTX 970 will yield much much more performance than a 760. Spending extra money on Intel if you're not going to be rendering and such is pointless, from a Canadian to a Canadian, believe me, you will be much happier with resullts if you choose the FX 8320 and GTX 970, graphics cards are where you should put your money.

Then you can overclock it later like I did, I have a GTX 770 and FX 8350 at 4.7Ghz, it is common to at least get 4.6-5.0Ghz without reaching the max voltage, and with a Hyper 212 Evo, you can get at least 4.4 Ghz. A FX 8350 and 8320 are the exact same just the 8320 is clocked lower.

Don't know the AMD stuff? I didn't either when I built my PC, the FX line is their flagship CPU, no iGPU, middle range performance and all of them have unlocked multipliers, the installation is just that the CPU has pins on it and not the motherboard, but besides that, pretty much the same. Google/YouTube is your friend, education is key. The price is a lot lower, but performance is quite decent for the price you pay. And yes a 970 is $400 dollars but you can fit one into your budget if you really try. This is an excellent deal on the NCIX ebay outlet- http://www.ebay.ca/itm/XFX-Radeon-R9-290-980MHZ-4GB-Double-Dissipation-Black-Edition-Video-Card-93752-/151542566968?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item2348a41038 I bought my 770 on there and it works perfect! I know you may not want an AMD card but just informing you on that deal, it would have around the performance of a GTX 780. And if you want Intel and not overclocking, find the cheapest motherboard, and get a i5 4590 or something along the lines of that.

No one but professionals care about synthetics, the 8350 held its ground by minimal differences in single GPU setups, which is what about 70% of gamers have. If you pay $50 more for 5-10 FPS you're crazy, especially when you can overclock to get that minimal FPS back. And don't tell me about the power bill because it would take about 15 years before you paid it off, and people normally keep their PC for about 2-4 years.
