Tell me what you think and what I should get instead of what.
I am pretty much only using this for gaming and want to squeeze every frame out of the asshole of this computer.
For the monitor i'm not really sure, I want to get and IPS monitor with atleast 21.5" and under $300
I was thinking the LG 23EA63V-P (IPS) 23"

Case: NZXT Phantom 630
CPU: i5 4670k
CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X40
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB (2x4gb)
Optical Drive: LG CH12LS28
PSU: Antec HCP-750
Monitor: LG 23EA63V-P (IPS) 23"
Video Card: ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II OC

Please don't shit yourselves because I don't have an SSD, this is because i don't think SSDs are as great as people make them out to be .Seeing as the effect on graphic performance is only very very minuscule and the main thing it is benificial for is speeding up the time of programmes loading by like 10 seconds which to be honest for $150 it doesn't appeal to me.

Feel free to disagree with me but just know that this is just my opinion.
Tell me what you think of the build thanks and what damn monitor. Thanks :D

I think this is better psu. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-power-supply-caps...
You really do not need 750w with one videocard. 550w is enough. If plan is go to SLI then it is good to have 750w psu.

For 1080p monitor you do not need GTX 780. GTX 770 is more than you really need with 1080p monitor.

For monitor 100$ more and you get this: http://www.amazon.com/Yamakasi-2560x1440-S-IPS-Quad-mon...
Well worth that extra 100.

Are you sure 550W is enough? and that monitor is a little big and I have never heard of that brand. I like the 2560x1440 however. How much FPS would this build get with that monitor on Crysis 3 with ultra graphics? and how much FPS with a 1080P monitor?

Yes Im sure that 550w is enough. Build like that takes out from wall socet about 220w when you play game like BF3
450w can do the job so 550w good PSU can do it easy. 450w is in 50% PSU usage most of the time when you play. Idle usage is much lower. And good PSU gives more wattage than it is labeled for.

Lets look FPS over here:

And this tells something.

I'd honestly get a 650watt PSU to be better safe than sorry.
