Default My Gaming Rig

I would like to thank Biker Echo for all the help so far but I thought I would post this publically so here goes:

Intel Core i5-4670K, MSI Radeon R9 280X, Corsair Carbide Series 300R Windowed - Intel Build-Best so far and cheapest!! - Chatster007's Saved Part List - PCPartPicker United Kingdom


CPUIntel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core 161.94
MotherboardASRock Z87 Pro4 ATX LGA1150 77.80
MemoryCorsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 67.74
StorageSandisk 64GB 2.5" SSD 35.51
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM 42.73
Video CardMSI Radeon R9 280X 3GB TWIN FROZR 202.99
CaseCorsair Carbide Series 300R Windowed ATX Mid Tower 63.97
Power SupplyCorsair 600W ATX12V 52.84
Optical DriveSamsung SH-224DB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer
Can anyone offer any further suggestions? I plan to play games such as ETS2 and BF4 as well as a bit of other stuff on a 32 inch HD monitor.

I don't really want to spend much more money than this.

What are the reviews like on this mobo? Is it good? Is my video card good for the money? And what about the RAM?

Thanks for any help you can offer

Why you going 1866mhz? You can save a few bucks and do 1600mhz instead

I found that specific RAM for him because it's a cheaper version of the other RAM he had chosen to begin with.
he could ofcause save a little more money, but as far as i remember he wanted something with 1.5V. Is that right?

I looked around again, and i found these
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9) - PCPartPicker United Kingdom
you can save an extra 6 dollars.

i personally would still have chosen your current RAM. 1866 is easier to clock CasL with.

I have a 1TB in my system. I currently have used 650GB. SO 1 TB is good enough for me
