What do you think of this £1050 build?

This is the best place to create this post, I assume, or at least hope. So the purpose of this first little update is to ask all of your opinion on this £1050 build I've managed to arrange. If you think the build is good, or sub par, or anything like that, or have any suggestions to change parts, or anything else, by the time I order everything, please do just leave a reply, and have fun playing around with the money if you do try to put together a more suitable build for me. Please just note that the Operating System is included in the cost. Thanks, all. Do your best

CPU: Intel i5 4690k
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z97X-Gaming 3

Yes you have put this in the right spot, the build sounds ok but the changes I would make are Go Asus or MSI for the Board and GPU and a Western Digital for HDD apart from that good to go

I agree with Excalabur about the HDD. A lot of people on this forum have had issues with Seagate drives.

That doesn't mean you'll have problems, so ultimately it's up to you.
