A x62 is massively overkill for a locked i5, just wasting his money there.

 

What's his use for the build? the build above will likely be better.

I would rather go with @r2724r16's build, just would swap the CX550M PSU for a RM550x. If you plan on playing in a 144Hz+ monitor, you might want to go with an 8600k, but other than that, 2600x ftw. Also would consider a 2TB HD.

The build has some issues.

 

There is no need to use such an expensive cpu cooler since the cpu cannot be overclocked.

 

The cpu will not run memory faster than DDR4-2666.

 

A larger ssd is a good idea. 120GB gets tight after a year or two.

 

I'd suggest the smaller H500 case.

 

I'd suggest a newer model Sesonaic psu.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

Fixed:

 

Your RAM matches your motherboard speed, better SSD, More Mass storage, larger PSU, also you don't need a cooler.
