Best GPU for this build

Im building a gaming build soon and plan on running games like dayz, skyrim, fallout, battlefield 3, minecraft and other games maxed out and was wondering if this build:

Is sufficient, overkill or good for these games. Specifically the GPU. Are these GPUs good to run these games on ultra? If not which GPU would be best. I'm open to two way sli also. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!

  4. First, I recommended ASUS mobo for your build to use the 4 way optimization for easy OCing.
    2nd, Change the VGA to GTX 760 crossfire it's batter performance than GTX 780 and lower price than GTX 780.
    3ed, Memory try to fined lower GAS Latency for fast reading.

    Best regards

    You do realize that the motherboard has integrated 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac wireless LAN?
  6. Thanks everyone for the help. I forgot the motherboard when creating this build.
  7. And my budget is up to $2500

    Even though your original build didn't have a motherboard, I figured as much. The Asus Z87 Pro includes integrated WiFi and there really isn't going to be any discernible difference in sound quality from the on-board sound and the premium sound card you picked out.

    You should figure out what your storage needs are...
  16. Should I get any extra fans or is the ones that come with it enough? And should I go with a liquid CPU cooler or a fan?
