Right off IMO go the extra $$ for the Intel K chip, chances are you will over clock it down the road or sooner.

You can only OC K chips!  If you get into gaming sooner or later you will want to pump up your edge.

Hello Justin,

 

Here's my recommended computer build.

 

I selected a powerful i5 4690k that will be great for your needs.

 

I picked out an Intel Z97 Chipset based motherboard for future upgrade capabilities. You picked out an Intel H97 Chipset based motherboard. That's old technology. You don't want to be hemmed in by older technology when there is new technology available for about the same price.

 

I picked out better storage options... Western Digital hard drives are better than Seagate HDDs. Samsung SSDs are more reliable than Crucial SSDs are.

 

 
Motherboard: MSI Z97 PC MATE ATX LGA1150 Motherboard  ($100.98 @ Newegg) 
Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon R9 390 8GB SOC Video Card  ($329.99 @ Amazon) 
Total: $947.08
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

NZXT has consistently always gotten better ratings and feedback from computer builders. I have built a lot of computer systems using NZXT cases and have been happy with the way NZXT is able to get the cable management thing to work right.

 

The only question is: Do you really want a micro-tower? Would a mid-toward work better for you? In either case, I would still pick a NZXT case.

 

I never really liked EVGA power supply units due to them using inferior wiring compare to what SeaSonic and Antec uses. Antec is a rebranded line of SeaSonic and Antec are usually lower priced than SeaSonic. XFX is another well built PSUs that are consistently rated similar to SeaSonic PSUs

 

Ok, you want the Western Digital Black Series hard drives with 64 MB. 

 

Here's my revised based on the change in the hard drive:

Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon R9 390 8GB SOC Video Card  ($329.99 @ Amazon)

Z97 is not "newer technology" than H97. They are both the same amount of newness, in that they are the chipsets for the current haswell/broadwell desktop line. The H is cheaper, doesn't support over clocking (which he says he doesn't want to do). The non K processor is also cheaper and also is not for over clocking.

Nice build. However, you're limiting yourself with that mini motherboard with only 1 x16 3.0 and any other expansion slots, which leaves you with no future xfire or sli. The i5 is a beefy cpu and does well, but something to consider a i7-4790k Devil's Canyon CPU for $110 dollars more. That's a 10% performance increase across the board including gaining hyper-threading for multi-tasking, video editing, video rendering. That's a whole lot of performance gain for $110 dollars more.
