As of now, I'm trying to build a PC which will be a mid-range to low-high gaming PC with a bit of movie and video watching on the side. I feel like there are some things I can improve on or simply find a better and more reliable component for a similar or cheaper price. I didn't put in an OS yet because I have an old Windows 7 64-bit disc lying around which I plan to use. I also plan to add a SSD and a second graphic cards down the line, but as of now I just want to get into some decent gaming.

No need to get a Z87 board when you dont have a K processor. I also dont think you can xfire a r7 260x.

Yeah if you plan on OCing then get a i5-4670k.. If you're not OCing then get rid of the cool master and get a stock cooler.. Cheaper motherboard for non OCing because a z87 is for OCing.

Take out the OS, add in a DVD player, change the case too. If you're not going to have processor that overclocks, then you dont need a motherboard that does either. If you do want to OC, then get a i5-4670k processor on your build.

Thanks for the suggestions thus far, especially about the mobo. I mixed and matched from the two builds I saw and found a nice case with several fans in it which will hopefully give enough airflow that a CPU cooler won't be needed.

The stock CPU cooler is not too shabby, but that build looks solid to me.

Bump.

A few more opinions would be helpful. Otherwise, I think this will be the build I'll set my sights on.

a bit overbudget but you can always just get the 280x instead

Careful guys. Make sure the power supplies you're recommending have enough PCI Express power cables for crossfiring two cards. I think the two listed only have two each. I would recommend four each which will probably only be found in higher wattage supplies.
