Default Looking to build for the first time.

I'm looking to build a non gaming computer. It will mostly be used for web surfing, personal use and some work with my website that I sell products on. Doesn't have to be the best and fastest machine in the world but I can't stand when a computer is slow and not responsive. What is the best build for what I'm looking for. I have done a build myself let me know of its ok or recommend yours. Thanks alot!

System Build - PCPartPicker

That link doesn't point to your build I'm afraid, just the PCPartPicker website!

that mobo is a 760 chipset and will not support that Cpu, you will need a minimum 970 chipset.

i would Change the cooler to the cm 212+ evo as its much better value

I would also change the memory to G.Skill ripjaws as it better value.

Please dont cheap out on the psu, it will burn out and may damage other components.
get a branded one like corsair

Asus can be overpriced for dvd drives, have a look at LG or Samsung.

My advice is to buy the most motherboard you can afford.

As far as optical drives go, I recommend Lite-On, but ja6on has some solid suggestions.

My opinion, 500 gb isn't that much, you spend like 10 bucks more and get atleast a 1 tb, and no gpu?
