Exclamation Building new computer need help

I'm building my first computer and i have been checking all of these parts to see if they will work together. It looks fine to me but i wanted to double check before i get anything. I got all of the names and links to the parts and put them below if someone could look them over and see if they would work together that would be great.

Couple things here.

First thing is, you're over spending on a lot of things for nothing, for instance the CPU. You don't need an i7 for gaming as games don't utilize HT. Drop that to a 4670k.

Next thing is, the RAM. You don't need a RAM speed any faster than 1600MHz. You're literally wasting money on faster RAM for nothing.

Next topic up for debate is that PSU. Do not buy junk brands just because they are high wattage. You don't need any higher than 650w for a single GPU system, and even some dual GPU systems. A Corsair TX or HX650, or Seasonic m1211 620w would be perfect. Quality over wattage any day.

With the cash saved from not buying an i7 or expensive overrated RAM you can afford a better graphics card which is where your performance for gaming will come from. At the minimum get an eVGA GTX 760.

Last on my list is, unless you have an absolute reason why you are using Amazon you can get much cheaper prices at Newegg and usually just better deals on PC parts all around.

Yes sir. Although I would go modular on the PSU which is why I specified the M1211 Seasonic 620w.

That's the corsair PS I have and have been using and abusing for at least ????? 5-7 yrs now LOL But Seasonic is also a top rate PS and modular is great for wire management. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151095

I normally recommend the Corsair units, but lately they have just been pricier. Why not buy the OEM if it's cheaper? Makes sense to me lol.
