    Thanks for the advice. It seems as though we'll have to balance cost with future-proofing.

    I had a look at the i5-4670 ($220) and an Asus Z87-PLUS LGA 1150 ($160). Prices are from newegg.
    It doesn't add too much to the cost and I'm sure the extra performance will make it worthwhile anyway.

    I noticed that there's a 700W power supply in your example build, would something less powerful suffice?

    The processor and motherboard are wrong. Intel's moved on to their 4th gen cores - Haswell. You should be looking at those, the supporting motherboards, and a new fan (the stock fans are dinky).

    Also I would avoid buying memory on Ebay. You have no idea where its from or what its been through.. avoid the headache and get it straight up.

    Is there a case that needs to be purchased?

    Is the powersupply big enough, or has the right connections, for the motherboard/video/cpu?

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    We were looking at the older i5 to save some money, but I guess the new generation isn't that much more expensive. Ill spend some time looking into a different motherboard, too.

    I am using the eBay prices as a reference, and will probably end up buying what I can locally. I've had problems with ram before, and would not wish that situation on anybody...

    That bundle looks pretty awesome, though. I might have to consider going with that instead.
