Go with intel an i5 4690k or i5 6660k. 650psu evga
 
First off, give me a budget for your build, I can put together a much better one! :)

You don't want to get an AMD CPU as they have poor IPC, which is essentially how much each core can do at once.
They are also less optimized than Intel in most games.
Is there a specific case you want in your build?

if you can afford a better motherboard go for it
 


NONONONO.
DO NOT, get this build.
For $20 more you can get 16GB of DDR4 RAM, which is quickly becoming the norm.
The founders edition cards also suffer from thermal throttling, and are quite loud. See here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXUo1S55ZUM

Ok instead of saying do not get this build why not just say dont get the graphics card and get 16gb of ddr4.
 


Because that's not all there is, you can get the same quality power supply for cheaper, and that motherboard is overpriced atm. For the same price there is a better alternative.
I could go instead of saying don't get this build: change the motherboard, RAM, power supply and graphics card, but that's 60% of the build.....
 
Here is the build, same price, better performance and components.
