    So I had posted a topic previously wondering whether I should buy a pre-built gaming PC or building my own one. With a bit of research and a few people's opinions, I have been convinced that building my own one is the better way to go. (Even if it's more complicated)
    So now I am asking for help on which components to go for. I have made a list using PC PartPicker and hope for some input from more experienced PC builders.
    Please let me know what you think of this build! :)

    Thank you very much for any help/opinions.

    That looks a very nice build, all I would suggest is if you can stretch your budget a little then go for an 850W PSU so you can add another 970 in the future if you so wish, and the i7 4790k instead of the i5 would probably be worth the upgrade as games should soon start to use hyperthreading properly.
