Here's what I'd do: In an ideal world, get everything in Intel Man's build: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/4ZMsYr If you want to save money or need to save money to buy an OS, considering the following: - Stock CPU cooler or a cheaper air cooler like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 instead of the H80i GT - CX600M instead of the RMx650 - WD Green or Blue instead of the Black (if the HDD is just for storing files or installing games onto) Keep everything else the same. I'd wait for the RX 480 to come out and then buy it all. I think it's coming out on June 27th which is a week away today. Worth the wait since it looks like it's going to smash any other card in its price range and also cards from the previous generation that were quite a bit more expensive than the 480 is going to be. This build, even with the cost-cutting options, will be great!
