I'm looking to build a gaming rig and put these parts together here:http://pcpartpicker.com/p/9Mc7Hx

It would be great to get feedback and if i should change anything. I also have a budget of $800 to $900.

IDude,

 

That's a good build. If you are able to get additional $85 more than what your build is, then you can get this build that I recommend.

 

I picked out an i5 4690k processor, which can be overclocked (if needed) and is far more robust than the i3.

I picked out a better and more longer lasting hard drive. It's worth the few extra dollars for this hard drive.

Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB Superclocked Video Card  ($139.99 @ Amazon) 
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224DB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer  ($13.98 @ Newegg)

You get even better clocking with Intel K chips!

If you are doing a gaming rig, I would suggest at least a quad core i5 instead of a dual core i3.  The Intel Core i5-4460 would be a good choice, though it isn't a K-series.  For a motherboard, I would swap it out and go with a Z97 motherboard, such as the GIGABYTE GA-G1.Sniper Z97.  Alternatively, you could use an AMD system with the AMD FX-6300 and GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3P.

 

For monitors, I prefer IPS panel monitors due to their viewing angles and colors, so I would get the LG 19MB35D-B Black 19".

DJB,

 

Don't know if you saw my suggested computer build, but that's what I had suggested to the original poster.

 

I prefer to stay with Z97 chipset Intel based motherboards to give people more choices in terms of processors and overclock the processors if the K series processors were used.

Yes, I did see your build.  But I chose a different processor so we could get somewhat close to the price of the i3 since a "K" version of the i5 is a bit more expensive.  I chose a different, and unfortunately more expensive, motherboard since it has more of a proven track record.  Most Gigabyte boards are good, so either should be a reasonable choice.
