Thanks for all the info.

So this could be an option as well?

Yes, that's a fantastic build for what you have in mind for this machine.

The "upgrade" to an R9 280X or CNPS14X that PontiacGTX is recommending are entirely optional depending on budget. Any GPU from a GTX750Ti - GTX770 or R7 270 - R9 280X is in that "sweet spot" of high performance value, so just pick based on what the budget allows.

While the CNPS14X is a beefier CPU cooler than the Hyper212 EVO, I'm not entirely convinced it would perform better on the 1150 socket platform. The low TDP with high thermal resistance to the IHS on the i5 is apt to favor the direct-touch heatpipes of the 212 just as much or more than the raw size of the 14X. The CNPS14X would be apt to perform better when strapped to larger dies with larger IHSs and lower thermal resistance from the chip to the IHS. (LGA2011/1366 32nm chips, and AM3/AM3+ chips).

There's nothing wrong with a Rosewill Capstone 550W modular for $85. It's a great PSU. You can size down to the 450W version without any consequences if you'd like to save $15 or so.

That hard drive is expensive, any particular reason you want it? Seagate Barracuda 2TB's sell for about $70 on there I think.

Unless the budget is seriously tight I would entertain the idea of the FZEX 1TB as well. $85 isn't expensive for a 5 year warranty enterprise class drive. It's also the fastest non-hybrid 1TB 7200RPM drive I am aware of.

If you're going to change anything about the drive configuration, drop to the EZEX and pair it with a 120-240GB SSD like an M500 series to use as a boot/app/game drive. Otherwise, the next best thing would be a Seagate ST1000DX001

Any of these options are good. The 2TB Seagates for cheap would also be good as well!

2TB is really great to have, I can put anything I want on my 2TB hard drive and not worry about it taking up lots of space.

in fact the cnps14x is better with lga115x
http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cooling/2012/10/11/zalman-cnps14x-review/2

But anyway can keep the cooling on lga2011 in the same league of a more little ihs(linked above)
http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coolers/display/zalman-cnps14x_5.html#sect1


But thos doesnt means that a high end heatsink will be the same on an amd setup

If you believe this to be the case, can you provide any reasoning or evidence besides links to AM3+/2011 32nm soldered chips to prove it? I haven't found any evidence to support than the 14X is better than the 212 EVO on an 1150 i5/i7. In fact, I've found nothing but evidence to support that these chips favor thin skived water blocks and DT-heat-pipes over total dissipation capacity.

you are going with a less efficient heatsink...
