£1000 Rendering/Gaming Build, i7 4770, MSI GTX 770. Thoughts?

So you may have seen me posting about here for the past week. I have been wanting to create a Rendering/Gaming PC which will Max out every game at 1080p. So many of you were extremely helpful in my quest. I have no intention to overclock hence the non k version. After hours of research into the GPU I have found that the MSI Lightning is basically factory OC anyway and is one of the best cards if you're not intending to overclock but it can be pushed even more.

Let me know what you think about the build, SSD will be bought later on when the new Samsung EVO comes out.

    1.The built is real good just swap out the 4770 with 4770k
    2.the power supply should be a xfx 650 which is much better

    The 4770k means it's unlocked so that you can OC no? If I have no intention to OC how would I benefit out of it? might be something that I'm not aware of and XFX? will have a look into it.

    Look if u have no intention to oc then an z87 would be an overkill
    Get a h87 board instead of z87

    For the psu xfx is a quality maker as its supplies are manufactured by seasonic and all the supplies are tier 1/2 supplies
    Its one of the best company in supplies

    h87 is a normal non OC board? I will check out some reviews now. Will 550W be adequate for this build?
  5. 550 is enough untill u have the refference 770

    But u have the o.c. Version so i ll advice u to play safe and get a 650w xfx supply


    Yes h87 is the best non o.c, board
