Any feedback or tips would be awesome!

Looks good, though for the same money as your 2 GTX 770s you could have bought 1 HD 7990 and gotten 8 free games too.

One tip I have is getting a radeon 7990 over the SLI 770s. Its kinda a personal decision, but with 8 free games the 7990 is a steal. It should also cost the same or less then the 2 770s. ($700 in US for 7990, 2x $400=$800 for the two 770s). Anyways its your choice, and all else equal I like Nvidia more, but the games are a wicked deal.

Well, nice build overall. But.
First thing that struck my, was your choice of CPU cooler. Every component you chose is a top-grade hardware, but suddenly boom! 20 quid cpu cooler. It's not bad, but it's not top notch either. I would say this kind of PC deserves something more. With such a roomy case why not go with water? Corsair H100i or H110, Swiftech H220 or H320. If you are not water cooling fan, as I am, maybe Phanteks tc14pe, hideous Noctua u14s or Prolimatech Megahalems Black will appeal to you more.

Secondly, the motherboard. If you want Gigabyte go with UD4H. No point in getting 5 unless you like PCI-E placement better. If you are open to suggestions, I would recommend Asus Z87-DELUXE. It has wireless LAN with ac support already on board. Bluetooth module is there as well. No need to get additional hardware.

Rest of the components is better than good.

thats a decent built but need some changes

1.get a asus z87 pro board or maximus vi hero board instead
2.770 sli wud beat the 7990 by a leap so dont change
3.dont spent so much on the case get a great haf x case and spent the rest on a cpu cooler get a nzxt kraken x40/x60
4.u can go with 8gb ram as its enough
5. get a tier 1 full modular psu like this instead of that tier 2 psu

I won't argue your other points, but the 7990 should be on par with the pair of 770s, maybe a little bit worse. However it will probably cost less and comes with 8 free games.

Ya honestly I was at a crossroads between about 6 different coolers, so that is by no means my final choice, and I am very open to suggestions, so thank you! And I also have to admit, the motherboard was also a toss up, and the Z87 was considered. I'll look up pricing and all that too, so thanks for the suggestions! Quick question, does the z87 support LGA1150 for the CPU? I'd imagine it does. But thanks again!

First off, thanks for the reply and the tips!
Since you're the second person the recommend the Z87 in this thread, I'm going to have to take that as a sign lol. I had been considering it previously as well. As for the case, I love how spacious it is, leaving tonnes of room for future updates and mods, so I don't mind spending the extra chash. I will check out others too though! And nice PSU find, I will definitely look into that. Thanks again!

Z87 is the only chipset that supports LGA1150 processors and allows you to overclock them (k ones) using multiplier.
Your initial mainboard choice also based on Z87. This is the only choice if you want an unlocked Haswell CPU :)

a 770 sli beats 7970 crossfire so 7990 doesnt stand a chance

First, the 7990 is 2x 7970 GHz Edition chips on the same card.

Second, that's before the Catalyst 13.8 drivers came out that greatly boosted the 7990's performance.

Third, you effectively get the 7990 for $400 after 8 free games.

7990 @ $400 > 770 SLI @ $800

look i would advice to go with 770 sli
i got charts to prove my point do have any benchmarks???i ll be pleased to know if 7990 outperfrms 770 sli
and i know they are 7970 chips on the same card its a 950 clock 7970 are 1000 mhz clock
games can be sourced even free there always a way to get softwares but no way to get better hardware

There are quite a few 27" models in that price range too.

Since the beta drivers were just released...there hasn't been a review of them yet...when they do a review I will surely post the hard numbers...

However, GTX 770 SLI ~ GTX 690 and with the new drivers HD 7990 > GTX 690
