gpu: MSI GTX 770
MOBO: MSI Z87-G41
hdd: 500GB WD blue
ssd: muskin enhanced atlas series 60GB
psu: Corsair Enthusiast series TX750
cpu cooler: cooler master hyper 212 EVO
ram: G.Skill ripjaws series 8GB
case: Cooler master HAF 922
extras are a ASUS 19" LED backlight LCD monitor, mouse and keyboard

Primarily going to use for gaming dont plan to do SLI in the future i figure a GTX 770 will be strong enough by itself for a good while. already have an os

It's a really nice build . But
1. SSD , go with better like Samsung or Intel f otheror best performance and also life too.
2. U don't need 750w PSU. You can go with 550w PSU. It will be enough for ur system. But check first is it support haswell.
3. U can get "k" version processor for future OCing and best performance.
Your other parts are good.
I hope it helps.
Thank you

Either get the K version cpu as princejeet said or get a B85 / H85 mobo.

What's the resolution of that monitor? Sounds like a GTX770 is pretty much overkill on that.

Not a bad build overall. However, I'd like to put my two cents in.

I don't think you need an i5-4670K. An i5-3570K is slightly better (For gaming) and is a little cheaper. The Haswell does use less power though, so that might persuade you. But for the difference in price to performance, just stick with the 3rd Gen i5. If it were me, I'd get an 3570K.
You might want a larger SSD. A lot of people are complaining about eating up all their storage before they get everything they want on it. A Samsung 840 Pro 120GB is only around 110$ (AUD) and SSDs are starting to drop significantly.
The GTX 770 is overkill, but it's your money.
You may also want to invest in a larger HDD too.

I guess this build is to last for a long while? If so, you're on the right track :lol:

Hey
I don't think there is any worth for going to ivy bridge. There is aprox 7%-14% performance difference in only$20. I think it is really good.
2. I think it will be little future proof too. Bcs Intel's next Broadwell gen will be 1150 socket and haswell have HD 4600 graphics. It has better performance for gaming and other stuff too.
I hope it helps.
Thank you.

Fair enough, starting a generation behind isn't the smartest move. I was just offering a budget conscious idea :lol: . The 4600 graphics doesn't really do anything when he has a dedicated GFX Card. Other than that, the new Haswell chips aren't to bad.

Why not graphics matters?
You can add these graphics with ur graphic card with the help of lucid virtue.
2. U are asking for budget. In this way u r right. But I m asking for future least next 3-5 years and for performance minimum 10% more performance and saving more power.
In this way I m right on my way.
I hope it helps.
Thank you.

I actually never knew you could do that with your integrated Graphics. You're right, 20$ bucks for that performance really is negligible inst it. Getting more years out of it inst to shabby either. Either way, alright build.

Alright so im going to go with the gtx670 upgrade the ssd and stick with the haswell i5 its basically the same price as ivy bridge. also i dont plan to overclock so im not going to get the k. Any advice on MSI vs Asus gigabyte or evga for video card make? Im currently thinking the msi because its the same board and its cheaper thanks

for the 770, they are about the same. id get the msi however since its a tad cheaper and their video cards are always great

since you arent overclocking, get this
