First I have a gaming laptop. It's a i7 3720qm with a 680m GPU. Its my only PC.

I want to build a htpc and I have the nvidia shield and thought why not build a htpc that can game, and stream games to my shield.

I have
Case- either a bitfenix prodegy or a fractal 304
Cpu- i5 4670k
GPU- Asus 760 2gb
Ram- 8 ddr3
No optical drive
No real over clocking
1 tb HDD 7200 rpm
600w corsair
As rock WiFi it mobo

All for around 900$ with tax (micro center)

If you're not overclocking there isn't a reason to get the 4670k.

The difference isn't that much, and maybe he can change his mind and overclock later on when his CPU is struggling.

Agreed. Just saying.

Also, yes, you should build it.

I don't think microcenter offers the $40 - $50 off a CPU mobo combo on the non K model i5s

Have you accepted Raspberyl as your loli and savior?

Yeah, for the price I might as well get the 4670k. My other options are too weak and or to close in price.

I might overclock, but the case is snake and I'm worried about space with the cable management. Any good CPU coolers that are small?
