    Default Getting Update to Intel

    Well, I'm thinking to get an upgrate (100%) to Intel. Please tell me if you have any ideas to make this more cheap. I'll get this maybe If I'm lucky in 1 year (2016 - September)

    My recommendation, drop the watercooler and go for an air cooler. Hyper 212, or similar options are available for half the price of that cooler and are more than good enough even in a room that's almost 100 degrees F itself. (Personal experience)
    With that 20-30 you saved switching coolers, grab the i5-4690k instead, only a 20$ difference on newegg (Actually cheaper than the 4690s on newegg)

    What are the uses for the build? I see you've got a 500gb and a 1tb hard drive chosen.

    Also, you could opt for a much cheaper keyboard, not that I have ANY suggestions, being that I'm using a cheapy wireless. Hell, see if you can find this combo, the Logitech K260 comes with an okay mouse, but the keyboard has worked perfectly for me.

    If youre only going to spend 200$ on your GPU, I'd grab an R9 280 or an R9 280x if it's on sale, it's better than the 960. That or find a cheaper keyboard like stated above, and use the savings to grab the GTX 970

    Also, there are a couple parts in your old build you can use to save some money, but that's only if you're retiring your current pc. Say the power supply, if it's still good, it can still be used for the new build. Same is said for the hard drive, and the case even. You're actually using one of those cheaper coolers I mentioned, so even that would help save some money.

    I'm all about trying to save a few bucks here and there, so pick and choose through my advice as you will, and I AM new to building, so take that into consideration as well. That being said, that's what I'd do given the circumstances.

    Well, I choice the Water Cooler for OC, you're right to choice to Intel i5-4690k but maybe, you don't know I live in México City, then is more expensive almost everything here than USA, Newegg and Amazon (CPU, GPU, Watercooler, Keyboard will get by Amazon) beside this, I don't have trust for pay with credit card in newegg.. and is very strange but some stuff can get more Cheap here in México than Amazon.

    The computer (obviously) is for gaming (not extreme) and Adobe's Stuff, as Premier, Photoshop, After Effects, Etc, that's why I have a 500GB HDD and 1 TB HDD (500GB -> Adobe's Stuff 1TB -> Games and Porn)

    Maybe I can change the Keyboard for a SteelSeries (SteelSeries Apex RAW Gaming Keyboard): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._dp_o_pd_S_ttl
    It's not a kind of cheap keyboard but I'll be happy with it... Just for vice.

    Well, about the GPU, aside that GPU is so beautiful, I don't want something from AMD.. GPU, CPU, nothing, that's why I want to change to Intel..
    I don't care about the beauty of graphics in game or something else, I just want it for have more FPS (<--- Yeah, is a stupid idea) but that's why I want a 900 Series Nvidia

    Maybe it's the best idea I ever have but the old computer (AMD build) need that PSU, it's not because is a bad PSU, otherwise, this computer is for my brother and he need this computer at 100%. As you can see I can keep the HDD.

    Maybe that's all I can keep, the HDD and maybe, maybe RAM.

    I would go Nvidia > AMD if you play a lot of games. AMD is usually out of step with new game Devs and their driver updates are often days or weeks late for a new title. Nvidia is pretty good about working with devs and its common that their updated drivers will ship same day or prior to a new title.

    One suggestion on the two HD is to consider buying two 1TB mechanicals instead. The price is negligible and you can mirror them for some redundancy in data, or leave them separate and have extra space. I would avoid Seagate for 1TBs.

    Finally, check out https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales for posted deals. In the US, it's a national holiday, and a lot of retail stores are having sales. You may do better on some of your pricing, and most of the larger online stores should ship to Mexico.

    Thank you for the Link, is very helpful. I never had any kind of problem with Seagate, at least Toshiba.
    In the part of Nvidia, you're right, but, well... I don't play too many game for a Great Video Card, maybe TF2 on Ultra, yes, but beside this... Nope
