200th Post OH Yeah!

Pcpartpicker made a mistake. Since it didn't have any price data on that motherboard it made it seem cheaper because it acted like it cost nothing. I would still go with the Intel build.

EDIT

I would also go with a larger ssd, it won't cost hardly any more. Here's a good one. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/mushkin...-mknssdcr120gb

I'd like to know what you'd be doing on Youtube. I always liked helping small channels.

I think I'll do some game plays and mod tutorials and reviews. I think I'll play games such as ETS2, Spintires and basically all types of simulators. I'm focused on doing good content as when looking on youtube the only real source is DsSquirrelsNuts and so I'd like to see if I can get even half as good as him!!

Would it be worth getting a 4690K ?? I'm not sure if overclocking is a route I want to take. Will it improve my gaming experience?

Overclocking can improve performance, however it will make your CPU run hotter as well. So if you want to overclock you will need to have an aftermarket CPU cooler. I will list some very good ones for you.

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/FM2/AM3+ - Newegg.com

CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Water Cooler - Newegg.com

The H80i costs more, but it is a closed loop water cooler after all.

So if I decide I'm gonna over lock I need to spend a little more? I think I'll stay with just standard CPU. Is the turboclock like an over clock?

Well no you only need to spend a bit more on a good CPU cooler, Its basically Intel's Turbo Boost feature found in lower end CPU's.

I personaly think ocing is worth it. When i ocd my processor from 3.6 to 4.3 i noticed the performance boost a lot. Why intel charges so much for an unlocked processor i don't know but ehh.
