I'm trying to learn more about building computers and I'm looking for some feedback. It would be awesome if someone could rate my build or improve it.

Thanks for the help!

I also have something else to say..
With all of the people asking for builds for their price budget, why don't we make a sticky thread with all builds(updated over time ofcourse) for every budget from $500(or less) to upwards of $5000, also including specialty builds for gaming or editing and such. Do you think this idea could work?

It can work, but it will be pretty hard, because different people have different needs and prices change here and then. It will be quite hard to maintain it, but it's a nice suggestion.

You linked to your profile, that's why. Ok, for the $995 there are some things that can be improved:

1- You can get a 4690K;
2- For a $1000 build you can get liquid cooling;
3- The RAM costs a lot. You can get cheaper RAM. This is cheaper and will perform the same (if not better);
4- You can get a Gigabyte R9 290 for less;
5- The case is overpricedl
6- You should go with a 80+ Gold or higher PSU for that budget.

This is your build edited. $1 cheaper for more or less the same performance.
