pick out my dream gaming pc for me!

I have the rosewill thor v2 case a mouse keyboard monitor and headset, and about 1300-$1400 budget, I have played around with a few builds, but I have not been able to get excited enough to buy the parts. SO! I would like to see what you veteran builders might have in mind! I will be gaming ALOT as well as a little Photoshop and video editing :D

A few tid bits!
My monitor is 1080p, my headset is 7.1 surround sound capable, I would prefur air cooled over water cooled, I am not afraid to overclock. Quiet parts preferable.

    pretty solid, I'm jel of the 780... i can only afford the 770, personal preference I'd go for windows 7, but thats water under the brdige as far as the system is concerned.
  5. yeh that and it has slighty better preformacne and cost less

    I understand your concern, I've recently been advised against one of their boards by an ex tomshardware advisor. but that was regarding one specific board in the z77 chipset not the z87...
    however you could up it to a more expensive gigabyte board and drop the ssd to a 60gb to compensate if it truly worries you.
