  1. If you don't plan on overclocking don't get a z87 motherboard with a ocked non-K series cpu.

    Either get 4670K + z87 (can overclock) or 4670 + H87 (can't overclock).

    Also make sure to get 2 ddr3 4gb stick and not 4 sticks of 2gb. Some motherboards have issues when equipped with 4 dram sticks.

    Why the 1046 Mhz GFX card instead of the 1072 Mhz one ? (3% faster outta the box and $10 cheaper)

    You are asking about a cooler but CPU doesn't need one since not overclockable. Overclockable one is $20 more

    This great case (Corsair 500R) is $90 after $20 MIR and $10 off w/ promo code CEMCXMWS25, ends 8/20

    ASUS Z87-PRO has WiFi built in for $15 more

    Id avoid the Green HD's slow..... WD Black or Seagate 7200.14

    Avoid the builder (aka "budget") series PSU
    $100 Corsair TX V2
    $90 XFX Core Edition

    Id take the 144Hz over the 27"

    CPU Cooler:

    $30 CM Hyper 212
    $80 Phanteks PH-TC14-PE

    Sound card is build in, LAN card is built in and WiFi is built into the Asus board
