    I am a trained Biochemist who retired at the beginning of this year at the age of 35. After almost a year of traveling and eating all over, I came to the realization that retirement is really overrated. I only picked up PC building as part of my "learn-something-new-every-month project", so my advices should be taken with a grain of salt. The best part of building your own PC is that you can pick and choose the parts that go into your PC, and you can wait for the prices to drop on the parts that you want to buy. Use the Price history chart, and don't buy any part that isn't at the lowest price. Currently, Tigerdirect.com have a $20 off promo if you order over $100, and another $20 off if you use visa check out. http://slickdeals.net/f/7515676-20-off-100-purchase-w-mail-in-rebate-tigerdirect-com

    CPU: When you build your own PC, you have to pick the unlocked CPU because, soon or later, you will have to/want to learn to overclock. Pick the i5-4690K. This maybe the best time to buy this at Tigerdirect.com because of the $40 off I linked above.

    CPU Cooler: I have the CM 212 Evo on my AMD system that I built 7 years ago. The system still runs great, and the cooler still works great. However, if you want to overclock your CPU to 4.5-4.7gHz, and don't mind having a huge block of metal in your case, then I recommend The Noctua NH-D15. It is as good a CPU cooler as you can get. It is better than water coolers in that you won't have to worry about water leakage, and there is no water pump to fail. It is just a block of metal with Noctua fans that have 7 years warranty. It could probably last you 20 years if you clean it once a while. The draw back is that it is HUGE!!! With ugly Noctua color fans. It may not fit in your case, and it may even block the 1st Dimm slot on your Motherboard.

    Motherboard: The MB that you picked is expensive because it has 3 PCI express 3.0 x 16. It will allow you to run 3 graphic cards in crossfire/sli. If you don't envision yourself to ever run 3 graphic cards, I recommend something cheaper. This is currently $91 and it looks good: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-z97ssliplus MB is personalized for everybody brand/color/etc, so it really is up to you.

    Memory: http://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/1349-ram-how-dual-channel-works-vs-single-channel If you only want 8GB, then you should go with (1x8GB). I recommend 16GB, but if you don't have the money for it, then 8GB should be good for gaming.

    Storage: SSD for OS, HDD for everything else. The brands and sizes are personal preferences, so I have no comment here.

    Video Card: From everything I have read, the 970 is great. EVGA is a great brand. I have no experience with the EVGA 970, so I have no comment here.

    CASE: This is a huge personal decision because you have to look at it everyday. Pick what you like, and don't be cheap with it, because you will look at it EVERYDAY, and it's the first thing people notice when you show them your PC.

    Power Supply: my 7 year-old AMD system is still using the original Corsair 650w, so I really like Corsair PSU. 430W seems a bit small, there isn't much room for wiggle. You may want to pick something a bit more powerful so you can overclock. Use a Power Supply calculator to determine the size you need, and go with a good brand because a bad PSU can kill everything in your PC. http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

    Optical Drive: Not much to comment here. If you watch or burn DVDs, then buy this. If not, then don't. Use a USB drive to install your OS if you don't need a DVD drive. I hardly every use my DVD writer.

    Monitor: There are better monitor at that price range. If you want a gaming monitor, try to go for 144HZ with lower response time. This one was recently on sale for cheaper because of the Paypal $25 off on $200: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-vg248qe I game at 1440 and I find it is impossible to go back to 1080, but it is a personal preference.

    Wireless Network Adapter: I don't like using wireless on my gaming PC, so I have no comment here. Good luck with your build.

    Wow, you helped heaps! I don't care what my case looks like :P I prefer having boxes appose to SciFi looking ****. And retired at 35? Geesh, is it fun? :D If you have Steam we could talk as much as you want. I don't really have a lot of people to talk to due to them being ingame alot but I'd like someone who knows stuff abouts PCs so I can learn too :D I know what all the parts do but I mean in benchmarking ect. It's always fun to learn with someone then no one.

    What's the purpose for the build? Gaming? Video rendering? School work?

    Edited: Also include if you have a budget range or not. Including OS or w/o OS.

    Gaming, my budget is under 1550. I have a OS :P

    What's the gaming goal your trying to achieve? Meaning what kind of games are you trying to play on the computer?

    • 66 months ago

    Counter-Strike, Far Cry, Crysis, Dungeon Defenders and Battle field.

    Also, do you plan to do overclocking? Will this be a device you know you'd want to leave it the way it is or upgrade it down the road? Things like that. When you know what the outcome of the computer you want, you can then start planning for the build.

    Nah, I don't want to change parts :p

    Here's what I came up with:

    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/YKttHx

    For the most part, I tried to keep what you had in mind. The graphics card, the monitor can vary. Can you notice the difference between 60-120FPS? Can you notice the difference between 1-2ms? If those are somethings you can't, you don't need to worry about it too much.

    Reasoning behind choices: RAM - You won't notice too much difference for anything above 1600mhz in terms of gaming CPU Cooler - You don't normally need a cooler unless you plan to overclock. Case - The case will be decided when you figure out if you want to expand it later down the road or not. MOBO - Grabbed an z97 ATX motherboard for overclocking capabilities and SLI expanding for later down the road if you do plan to.
