Hi, I'd like to know if my build will work and if I should exchanged something for a different part or remove something. The link, http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/saved/1H147Y    This computer gets low Benchmark but high fps is this a good thing or something that I should be worried about, and what is a benchmark exactly?

You can't just that a Benchmark is high or low if you don't know the range of the benchmark.  For instance if the benchmark score was 10 and the range was 1 t o10 then while it is lower than the FPS number it is the top of the benchmark.  FurMark is used to test the video card, not the whole system.

 

A benchmark is a fixed set of steps that is run on different systems to give a truer comparison.  You'd have to see what the result would be on a different system.  You could also change the video card to see what difference it makes.

If I change the video card it does nothing, but if I change the processor It gives me a high benchmark (138) but lower fps, and does the benchmark matter at all, or should I change my settings around to get a higher benchmark?

I won't say that the benchmark doesn't matter at all, but it sounds like you're more concerned about the FPS.  Obviously the FPS information is just for the game indicated, but it should give you a general idea of how it will perform for your games.
