should i make any changes?

yeah, you should go for the jeff bezos special.

I think Travis and Chris both know how good it is.


Is there a reason why you are going with z97 instead of z170? z170 has the chipset pcie lanes increased to 20 to support Ultra M.2 without changing graphics performance. M.2 is where is everyone is going. Then you also gain DDR4 support and DMI 3.

link one that would be best then

Well I’m not sure why PC partpicker doesn’t list it but you would switch the 4790k to a 6700k, the ram to DDR4 in your price range, and a mobo that is z170 and preferably has M.2.

I also don’t see any storage on your list.
