Need help bulidng my system give me suggestions my budget would be around 1000usd. I won't overclock tho.

CPU: I7-4790
MOBO: MSI H97 GAMING 3
GPU: GTX 970 MSI (cheaper version)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb
HDD: 1tb 7200rpm
SSD: will add alter
PSU: Seasonic 620W Semi-modular
CASE: Cooler master elite 350
 
Replace the processor with E3-1231V3 if you are not OCing and buying a dedicated GPU.
E3-1231V3 is cheaper than i7 4790, is practically an i7 4790 but without the iGPU and only slightly underclocked (no difference in speed in real life).
Then with the price difference, I would get a BeQuite! Shadow Rock slim.

I agree with guanyu, and if you find that one too slow, then go for the 1241v3, even that one is cheaper than 4790. Lol so many numbers... somedays I don't know how I keep my sanity.:pt1cable:

And please, no talk about Xeon being a server processor, if we go through this again, I swear I'm going to make a copy-paste statement against such unenlightened individuals.
