Get an i5 4690K and a z97 mobo, I would suggest the MSI Z97-G55 SLI.

That or an i7 4790K.

Other than that it looks good.

what are you using the pc for? if only gaming get an i5 and 8gb of ram and change to the 1150 socket but if you are video editing go with the i7 3820 and 16gb of ram

 

i would also recommend an extra HDD for general storage

Move to the 4690K, it would perform better than the 3820, and get a $100-150 Z97 motherboard with it, there is absolutely no need at all of spending $350 on a motherboard.

Wow thanks for all the suggestions!

I would like to use this mainly for editing videos so I'm not too interested in SLI but I would still like to do some gaming on the side so I think I'll get a cheaper motherboard and upgrade my processor thanks guys!
