usb installs are a pain in the ass in a uefi bios world
Disks are as easy as 1-2-3

He can always get a external card reader/ disk burner later

Well, i personally use USB to make bootable drives etc. Disks are easy as 1-2-3 yes, but it isn't flash storage meaning that if you write something it will always be there no matter what even if you format the DVD/CD.

Looks good to me I'd go with the i7
Although again I'd go for a ASUS board personally.
Possibly or a MSI.

Neither one of those builds you linked to has any hard drives or prices, so you aren't telling us the whole story.

The 4790K will give you very little advantage over the 4690K in gaming and probably costs 60 or 80 pounds more.

You would probably enjoy the system more if you used that 60 or 80 pounds to put an SSD in the machine rather than a 4790K.

For gaming purposes, you'd probably be better off with a 4690K and a more powerful video card than with a 4790K and a GTX 960.

The 4790K has a tendency to run hot when used with the stock Intel cooler, particularly in a gaming situation.

Slow down.

For all we know, you have a mediocre case and a mediocre power supply. Some Corsair power supplies are OK and some aren't.

Is this the case:

CiT Neptune Black Midi Tower Gaming Case - - CP-626 BLUE - CCL Computers

Is that the ONLY vendor available to you?

Slow down.

The Corsair PSU's that should NOT be taken ever is the CX series. Avoid those as much as possible. As ignatzatsonic said it is best to have a GTX 960 with 4690K. As said if you are gonna overclock buy an cooler.

psu can easily be upgraded later if it's a modular one so can the gpu,
Case well he must of liked it otherwise he would not of chosen it ?

So just make sure the power supply is a modular one incase it fails within the 3-5 year warrantee.
gpu's are well outdated after 2 years it's "use an old one or fork out 600.us for a newer 980".

I see no reason to not go for the i7 this is a new build
Anything else can be upgraded later.

Get a better cpu cooler if that's the only issue with the i7

No because they don't send out builds to Northern Ireland :/

Guys I ordered the PC but I got a better PSU with it Corsair CX 750W (Modular) as that's the only one they had and got a better CPU cooler with advanced liquid cooling. I'm planning to upgrade it withing a years time whenever I'll have a higher budget.
