hi people, well my thing is that i was saving like for 1 years, to buy and build my own gaming pc, exclusively for games, so i want your opinions if my build is correct or my doubts, this is the first pc i am gonna build myself, and i with this build a spend 97% of my budget well this is my future pc

Intel core i7 4770K
MSI z87 GD65 gaming motherboard
Seagate Barruda 1 tb 64 mb cache 7200 rpm hard drive
Corsair vengeance 16 gb kit 1600 mhz
Nvidia GTX 780 3 gb 384 bits
Corsair 850 watts ( is this to much or i should go with the 750 watts)

i want to build this pc to last me at least 3-4 years i will play at 1080p resolution only, not exactly at 60 fps, but at least decent 45-55 fps, i want it to last, so it dont have to spend in new hardware quickly because i want my money last enough to wait the 3-4 years.

my only doubts are the power supply, if i have to wait for other graphic card but it have to be around 650 dollars, and if i need to wait for ddr4 memory ram to run next gen games"

thank u in advance!!

Woah. Thats a nice build. But your going to need some other components too. Maybe you just implied we knew this but anyways... Case (I like the Phantom 410 alot), and maybe an SSD instead of the 16 GB of RAM. I would definitely stick with the 850 watts becuase if you ever want to do some SLI your going to need the extra wattage. If you want to save some money I would lower the i7 to an i5. If all your doing to gaming you WILL NOT see a difference between the two at all. If you are going to be doing any video production or anything like that then stick with the i7 otherwise the i5 is a great CPU.

You're set for this year and next year, but you'll want to add another 780 or upgrade to a GTX 970/980 or whatever in two years' time if you want 45+fps at Ultra settings. If you're cool with the notion you'll need to drop to lower antialiasing in a year, drop to high settings in two years, then medium settings in 3-4, then this is a great rig for you.

yes in deed i nzxt phantom full tower and i blueray drive and i 1500 va Ups, and yes i will need it for gaming exclusively, but i am like afraid to buy i5 because i dont khow if nex gen will benefi for the multi thread and more threads of the i7, like more power of procesor just in case, the 16 gb of ram is because ps4 will come with 8 gb but i khow pc will consume more just the system so i go with 2x8 gb dual channel, because i cant put 3x4 gb tri channel just to put 12 gb and yes i never though of ssd drive. but u think the 780 will do the trick at 1080p at least at high not ultra?

If this is purely for games then an SSD is not necessary. I've got all my games on SSD and it has no performance impact other than I basically have no loading screens. This sounds awesome until you realize all the games that put hints/tips and neat little stuff on the loading screens that you would like to see sometimes. Also, you wouldn't want to get an SSD INSTEAD of RAM...PC won't work without RAM.
I'd stick with the i7. It's been proven that there are games that benefit from the extra power of the i7.
I'd leave the 850w PSU as well.

thanks caleb for the comment about ssd, and well i am gonna stay with the 850 watts, my only inconvenient is well the graphic card because invest 650 $ in card that will only last 1 year and a half is something i have to think i see the 7970 ghz 6gb at 510$ but it seems 780 is faster

The GTX 780 is a good bit faster than the HD 7970 GHz 6GB, which is a waste of money anyway. A plain HD 7970 3GB would perform the same when overclocked (which is very easy on the HD 7000 series.)

You could just get the best bang for your buck card like the new GTX 760 and enjoy today's games on Ultra at 45+fps (some you'll have to settle for less antialiasing) and upgrade to the next ~$250 card each year while you can still get a good amount for your card on ebay. That would guarantee keeping up with new games. And that way you only spend $250 now, and $50-75 each year - versus $650 now and another $650 in two or three years...

i
So let me see if a get u the best way to enjoy my games in price/ quality relationship is to buy me a gtx 760 will this last me next year? and then buy every year a 300$ i dont khow new video card will be less than that so i will continue playing my games at hight 45+ fps. thanks in advance

just comparing prices do you think 2 sli gtx 760 will outperform 780 and last me longer?? will the corsair 850 watts be enough? remeber i will only play at 1080p! thanks in advance

850w is plenty for two high-end cards.

2 GTX 760s in SLI outperforms a GTX 780: http://www.legitreviews.com/article/2224/1/
And that config will last you quite a while.

The reason I recommend a $250 card every year is because you can generally get $180-200 for them a year later by selling it used. Then put that toward a new $250 card.
(Also, $250 is the top price point where performance increase matches price. Example: the GTX 660 is $200, and for 25% more performance you can get the $250 GTX 760, but for 20% more performance over that, you get the $400 GTX 770, then for another 15% you get the $650 GTX 780.)

ooh thanks, and watching the performance of the sli gtx 760 i could get them for 510$ that's amazing i think i will go with them to be prepare for next gen games, but it is overkill for 1 monitor at 1080p for next gen games or should get those famous sli problems with future games?

Well as long as you're not buying games on launch day, you shouldn't have trouble - sometimes SLI profiles that work don't come until a few weeks later, so I've heard.

Right now that config is overkill for one 1080p monitor, BUT overkill this year becomes "perfect" the next. You will be looking at great framerates for the most demanding games on Ultra plus Antialiasing - like Metro Last Light and Crysis 3. You'll be all set for future games, as well.
