Had enough of buying pre made computers from JB-HI-FI and decided to give building my own computer a go. I just want to be able to play current games (DayZ, Rust, H1Z1, CS:GO) on high quality. If you see that I could better my choices, or if I've got it completely wrong for my intentions, don't hold back!

Can you provide links to the hardware? Who are you buying this from? I punched in the specs of the cpu and got a way lower price at newegg.com. Not entirely sure it's the same though. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117561 That's a $80 dollar difference.

And you can buy Windows 7 to go with that build. It is cheaper than Windows 10 but you can upgrade real fast and easy.

Disregard the prices shown in the JPG, I have a different vendor. Although, for my intentions is this a good build, if not, how could I improve it?

And you can buy Windows 7 to go with that build. It is cheaper than Windows 10 but you can upgrade real fast and easy.

I'm not too worried about the OS. What are your thoughts on the hardware?

So far it looks fine. In your list you're just missing your computer case and other things that you might need. Case Fans, CDROM, etc.

The computer case and CDROM is in the original post JPG.

Are extra case fans essential if I already have the Noctua NH-U14S (http://noctua.at/en/nh-u14s.html)?

 

What does etc. include?

If you're buying that case then you're good it comes with 3. I was just making sure you have some, as some cases don't come with any. Be aware though they are more than likely cheap sleeve bearing fans. The cpu fan you chose is fine and has a good long life bearing. Your computer build looks good.

What I meant by etc. Sometimes people don't like the built in on board sound, NIC, front panel, fans, and might want better quality than what comes with.

 

Remember, they manufacture these things as cheap as possible. A manufacturer can tell me all they want about quality and performance, but non of that makes a difference to me till I see the rubber on the road, so to speak. I have seen cheap motherboards perform like a 300 dollar one and I have seen 300 dollar mobo's head to the landfill right out of the box. You never know what you're going to get.

For your build, why not just drop the extra on a I7-6700K?
