      -Sometimes host arma missions and minecraft servers (both games for LANs and online with friends)
      -last upto 5 years
      -Mobo has a LGA 1150 socket
      -Do intend to OC
      -Mobo only allows upto 1866MHz RAM
      -case : Fractal define r4 window

      Note: prices of the parts do differ from those from the listed store page. Actual prices are in NZD$ and will be represented in brackets.

      i5-4690k vs i7-4790k - only real difference is hyperthreading on the i7, which isn't useful for gaming. Depending on what you use for video-editing, you might see a benefit there. Maybe check the software you use to see if it makes use of HT? Also, the i5's overclock better generally, so the i5 may even be better for gaming.

      If you want to air-cool, check out the Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO (~$AU50) and the Noctua NH-D15 (~$AU90). Some reviews of the Noctua have it ahead of the h100i for cooling and noise level.

      You won't see much difference between the G.skill and Corsair RAM, so probably can go with the cheaper option.

      The psu's look ok, although $290 is a lot of money for a 750W psu, even if it is gold-rated.

      I'd say Corsair not much difference between the two but I personally like Corsair, also you can find the Corsair RAM for much cheaper at local IT stores or other places.

      For the cooler unless you're going to overclock which you say you are I would stick with the stock fan but since you say that you're going to overclock I would say the H110.

      For CPU verspunken is pretty accurate on his descriptions so I'd look at that.

      And for the PSU I'd recommend the Corsair RM-650.

      I personally would have some other recommendations but I'm going to follow the options what you've set. If you want more info on what I would recommend you could talk to me on TS or reply here.

      those are New Zealand prices, here in NZ we get technology at unbelievable prices. And those are very cheaper than most stores and are company discounted prices (in the brackets of course)

      I agree with reaver, the differences between RAM speeds and all are so little there really isnt a point paying a premium for lower latency RAM or high clock speed RAM. Main drivers of your FPS and performance are going to be CPU, GPU and PSU(just needs enough juice).

      I recommend getting your RAM and Graphics card off amazon like i did. Its a lot cheaper and the only drawback is that it takes a week to arrive, which isn't really a problem.

      8gb Kingston HyperX Blu, $95 - http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-1600M...ywords=8gb+ram

      3gb Gigabyte r9 280 - $265 - http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-Radeo...1&keywords=280

      The r9 280 is just a underclocked version of the r9 280x. You can overclock the card with MSI afterburner up to the speeds of the 280x.
