Included a modular PSU, EVGA 780 with ACX cooler, Hyper 212 Evo to get some overclocks on your CPU, a standard DVD drive just for your OS install, a 1tb drive and low profile RAM so there's no risk of it conflicting with your cooler. I changed the motherboard as this one is cheaper and, as I personally own it, can fully recommend it - best Z87 bang-for-buck motherboard currently. This case is a good option for the price - other good choices are the Fractal Design Define R4, NZXT Phantom 410 and the 500R.

One thing I would say is that when purchasing a system this high-end, you really don't want to be missing out on an SSD. If it were me I'd see if I can't stretch my budget a little and grab a 120gb SSD.

This will allow you to save up, and buy another 770 later too if you want.

Biggest issue is no SSD with this build, but I can fit in a good SSD if you want one, and for this type of build a 770 should cover games for the next couple years great on 1080p.
