As per OP, i would dock the RAM down to 8gb and increase the speed to 1600mhz. I would also get a better PSU. The Corsair Builder Series is meh. They are good for their price but I would suggest getting Rosewill Capstone 550M. I THINK it should be enough but if it isnt then just get Antec High Current Gamer 620M.

never would have thought I would see the day Rosewill was putting out good PSU's. I used one of their green series in a build a while ago, was really nice.

Is this a better build?
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/AoOc
Also is they're videos on YouTube that show how to build it and everything because this is my first build.

Yeah but you can save 40 or so on the psu and get one of the antec neo eco 520w. Excellent PSU and whisper quiet. Aside from that I would probably get a hyper 212 evo or + over the gaia cpu cooler.

Lool this was what I was gonna link. Cuz the guy explains it really well and simply. Just when he applies thermal paste, dont follow that. Just put the pea size grain in the middle.
