This is my build plan, I'm looking for feedback on any of the parts apart from GPU as have already purchased it.
Will be running Linux on the machine most likely fedora.
Would appreciate any feedback/alternative parts which will save money or be around the same price. (I dont have any money for upgrades).
I will appreciate your input thanks
Guessing by the cooler and motherboard, you don't plan on doing any overclocking? No point going with a K part for the cpu.
Thanks that I good point, I think I went for the k part due to it's 0.2ghz faster clock.But now you mention it, it's properly not worth the £60 extra.
Or I could just get the 6500 skylake i5 . and save even more . any thoughts on 6th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 6600 3.3GHz vs th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 6500 3.2GHz ??
What are you going to be doing on the system?
Gaming and productivity, but as you can see from the GPU nothing particularly extreme.Just looking for the good value for money really and the beset performance I can afford.
What sort of productivity?
An xeon 1231v3 might be a better option, with a h97 board. It's essentially a 4790 without the iGPU.
I'd argue that the money's better spent on the GPU, for gaming. Also, you don't really need that many fans. Another £20 to go on the GPU, or a bigger SSD.
Good point , I only put in so many fans as overheating became a pet peeve of mine after a laptop I had overheating all the time.
Ill look into xeons thanks
If you're willing to go for the xeon, and you're stuck with that GPU, here's what I'd do.

That monitor's a much nicer 23" IPS panel with slim bezels.
