Hi. My PC is getting kind of dated in the processor area but my motherboard appears to be too dated for any more recent processors, so I've decided to build a new PC except for the GPU, Ram (already bought it), and hard drive (mine is still perfectly functional and only a year old so I figured I could still use it). I don't really know a lot about parts so I was hoping someone could give me some advice. I had a build in mind but don't know if I could do better, my budget for the remaining parts is around 500-600. I primarily use my PC for gaming, but I don't really need 4k amazing. Running most things on atleast hmedium to high is acceptable for my needs and budget.

Are you gaming at 1080p? If so you should upgrade that gpu. Gpushack.com has a good selection.

You are using intel's z97 chipset, thier high end overclocking chipset, with a non-oc cpu. I would advise to go with thier h97 platform and save some money or get a core i5-4690k if you want to overclock.

I recommend using PCPartpicker to do some test builds, and see what is compatible and what isn't and what you might want to add. From what you posted, I don't see a DVD drive - maybe you plan on salvaging one from an older machine or maybe you don't want one or maybe you just forgot about it.

 

This is a test build I did with everything you listed, except I used what I believe is the H97 equivalent of the motherboard you picked.

you should be able to edit it, or you can also start a new build. If you aren't set on an Nvidia card, I have a MSI r7 265 GPU and it meets all my needs. I think the prices of the two cards are usually very close, and the r7 265 benchmarks better than the gtx 750.

What games are you playing? A 750 is not sufficient for medium-high @ 1080p for a lot of modern games.
