I was able to get this part list together over the past couple of days but i need to pick out a different psu and i could probably pick out some different ram and a different mobo but i am having some difficulties picking finding the the best parts/price for the build. This will be my first from scratch build that i started on my own so i was trying to get it right. My budget is around $900-$1000 including the OS but i got an email from newegg for 5% off my total purchase to a max of $50 which should help me out to reach my budget(was trying to keep on the low end of $900-$950)
I appreciate any help in advance and i apologize if i am a bit slow to answer at certain times. i will try to check back often on my phone.
Edit: should add I am not against changing the case or going amd. However I do not know much about amd cards and which one to get.
Ok thanks for the help but will that corsair 600w handle OC with the i5 and possibly a sli in the future? I could always get a better psu in the future(which i think i would rather do to save now) and i don't actually plan to sli anytime soon but its a possibility. Thats the modified list with your parts added so now i just have to find the right motherboard and maybe some ram without a large heat spreader.
The power supply should be plenty of power if you want to overclock but not SLI. I usually see people recommending z87 motherboards so I assume it should be fine for overclocking. The heat spreader on the RAM you have doesn't look all that high but here is some RAM that's not too expensive with some low height heat spreaders:
