looks decent. ethically, i agree with mr 183. i'd generally recommend AMD CPUs for somewhat newer builds mostly due to the continuous security flaws that keep getting found in intel's current batch, but i also have an 8086k and an NVIDIA GPU from a build last august so i'm hypocrite of the month here. for the most part, x600 AMD chips should be relatively similar to an i5 with minimal differences so they can work good if you're looking to save a bit. plus their included blowers aren't completely shit vs intel which i don't even think tries anymore so you might have to add an external cpu cooler on top of that, but that's here nor there. i'm getting off on a tangent, point is, they're similar enough i don't really think it matters one way or the other but the i5 will nab you slightly more performance in 100% gaming situations, if that's what you're optimizing for. the 2600x should be better in literally anything multicore which is the futureTM (and has only been the future for the last ten years). also yeah it might be worth waiting for the new ryzen since they're suppose to be pretty dope performance wise and depending on pricing might also push intel to drop prices giving you a better deal either way. EDIT: all of the above is a lot to say "it doesn't really matter, go intel if you're purely gaming and don't care about anything else" also get an ssd. get a crucial mx500. it's a pretty good one. or get a samsung fuckitican'tbeassedtogooglethemodelnumberrightnowbutthey'realsogood evo. it's amazing how much an ssd makes general pc usage better.
