Default Need help with pc build

ok so ive decided i might try building my own pc instead of buying a prebuilt because it seems a lot cheaper and efficient.

My budget is around 1,500 and im looking to play games in the max settings with good fps and im also looking to render videos. I prefer intel processors.

That's a great build, PP Mguire!
But since hjmario's budget is 1500 and your build is "only" 1444 dollars, I'd like to suggest looking at a more high end case like the Corsair Carbide 500R instead of the 300R...

Cases normally last quite long so it's nice to invest in a good one! And it's only 30$ more

I leave room for people to chose their own case if they will on a budget like this since cases are pretty personal preference. For instance, I think the 400 and 500r are ugly, yet the 300r sports a clean look.
