Nice Build! I built one that had a lot of similar parts, and it's working pretty fantastic. Same motherboard, PSU, HDD, and a 750K which is a lot like the 5800k, but without the graphics. There is only one thing that I am wondering about; are you sure it can max out Crysis 3? I mean, the graphics are boss, but that's the only problem I have with this. But overall, great build! Keep up the good work!
Yeah, sorry about the huge description. A little bit excited, since this is my first build, wanted to make a good impression. I'll make it shorter next time, and thanks for the criticism!
Hello there! So, at this moment, you are in the same situation that I was in for my first build. I had about $400 to spend, and I still wanted to play fairly new games on good settings. So, after a good deal of research, I found a YouTube video by a guy named Austin Evans about how to make a $400 dollar gaming PC. So, this build is mainly based on his build, with a few minor tweaks of my own. It's about $425, so just a bit more money than your ideal, but with price to performance, this PC won't let you down. Also, these parts are as high quality as you could want to go without breaking the bank. The power supply is 80+ bronze certified, meaning it's highly effecient and won't break easily, and the motherboard come with lots of goodies like USB 3.0, SATA 3, an excellent bios, (i have it on my own PC, and it's brilliant!) and plenty of expansion ports. The case is nice and roomy, with plenty of room to put in extra HDD's, ODD's, and the case even comes with USB 3.0 headers, which is amazing for the price. The GPU has plenty of speed for the price, and the RAM is 1600 mhz, which is great for today's games. You can and probably should expand it, but for all the latest gamest, four Gigabytes are plenty. And the CPU is fantastic for the price! It'll carry you pretty far, and can more than handle almost any game you throw at it. You can see the gaming performance at Austin's video, which shows you can throw many recent games at it and get good performance at 1080p at medium or high settings. It's his July 2013 build, just to clarify. So, that's all, and here you go!
Best of luck,
