Would this build work?

Okay guys, here is the parts I am thinking of getting by the end of September when I get enough money. I will be pretty much only be playing games like Crysis 3 and kinda preparing myself for next gen games. I just want some opinions on each of the parts like what I should get instead of something, which stuff is compatible, If I'll have enough power shit like that because I'm kinda new to this stuff and when I buy it I want make sure It's right the first time.

Intel Core i7 4770K Processor-
Gigabyte GA-Z87X-OC Motherboard-
Corsair Graphite 600T Special White Edition case-
Corsair Hydro Series H80i CPU Cooler-
Corsair 16GB (2x8GB) Vengeance Pro 1600MHz memory-
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB HDD-
Corsair HX-750 PSU-
LG Retail CH12LS28 BLK BluRay-
ASUS VX238H 23" Monitor-
Windows 7 Home Premiuim-
Will probs just get some shitty as Keyboard from the shops for $2 and I already have a mouse (I don't think this matters but what ever)


and for the Graphics card I kinda wanna get this computer sooner rather than later (seeing as the computer I have now runs Dayz at about 10FPS on every thing ultra low graphics) so I was going to get the Gigabyte GTX 770 and then later on when I get another $500 I could get another Gigabyte GTX 770 or should I just wait untill I earn enough money to get a single GTX 780? Opinions?

So please tell me what you guys think and please don't have a giant rage at me if I have made a mistake and sound like the biggest douche which I know I probably have :) Anyway Thanks.

  2. I was think, what about NZXT Phantom 630 Case?
    and what about the monitor
    and what's your opinion on the Graphics card situation? Would 850W be enough for 2x GTX 770s?
  3. Yes seasonic is the best when it comes to the psu
    630 is also a descent case
    Choice f the case depends on personal choice
  4. This shud b the final built

    Hi - A couple of things to help you getting your GPU sooner:

    1.) If you are building this primarily for gaming then get the i5k processor instead of the i7 (save $100),
    the i7 doesn't perform any better for gaming.

    2.) Likewise on RAM, 8g is plenty if you are going to be primarily gaming, save $60
    & go 8g.

    3.) I hate to say this cuzz you selected my fav case, but there are cases for less
    that will do the job, you could save another $50 (but that is a nice case)

    4. If you are going to go with one GPU (no SLI) like the 780, then get a
    650w PSU & save another $30-$60)

    Yes, a quality 850w unit is sufficient for 770 sli.

    That sounds really good but you still didn't tell me anything about the graphics card

    I like your idea of saving the money to get the single GTX 780 but will i5 and 8GB RAM be enough for next gen games? because in the very very far future i'd like to get another GTX 780 and I don't know if GTX 780s SLI would be bottled necked by i5 and 8gb ram?
  9. Get a gtx evga gtx770 w/acx for now and afterwards get one more this wud be a great performance from graphics card


    Hope it helped


    Dont frget to close the post
  10. Yes it wud be bottlenecked so gtx 770
    Plus there is only a slight difference between gtx 770 sli and a gtx 780 sli
  11. Best answer

    No telling what the future holds for games, but the games today do not utilize
    all the i7's cores/threads. Most (intel) gamers will acknowledge this, as long as you stay
    with the "k" version.

    As for Ram, 8g is plenty fo gaming, but it will be easy and inexpensive to upgrade
    should you find it necessary down the road.
