building my own PC

Hi. I am building my first PC. And this is what I come at last :

Motherboard - ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150
Video card - EVGA ACX Cooler 03G-P4-2784-KR GeForce GTX 780
Power supply - CORSAIR HX Series HX750
Processor - Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell 3.5GHz
SSD - SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 128GB
RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 1600
HDD - Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM
CPU cooler - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO

I haven't select case yet. I cannot decide between COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced RC-932-KKN5-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower and Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower . I have no experience in such things. Which to choose ? P.S. I have enough money, but I want to make optimal variant.
Do I need to get liquid cooler instead of Hyper 212 Evo? And last thing, what must I change or add to make system better without increasing price of all? Thanks in advance

    COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced RC-932-KKN5-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower would probably be the better choice since Haswell runs extremely hot so you'll want to go with the full tower,

    I don't think liquid cooling is necessary just get case fans as a replacement, or do you plan on doing some OC'ing?
  2. I have no idea that I will need OC or not. Because I used hp pavilion dv7, and don't know "power" of PC. I will use this PC for Unity3D, 3Ds Max and other such type programs.

    If this is your first build you may want to get the HD7970 GE CF which is almost as good as the GTX 780, but you will save $300.

    My friends suggested go with GTX780. Because of my experience I have no idea which will be best for me. At least I want to ask: will it handle games and such 3D working programs ?

    Yep it can play most games on ultra smoothly, and can easily handle 3D working programs such as AutoCad.

    Also when choosing a case, make sure it can fit all of the components.
    For the CPU cooler liquid cooling tends to be more expensive but it is quieter. Since your build uses expensive parts, I would get a stronger fan the 212 evo.
  6. stronger fan than the Evo 212 or what?
  7. This fan is better than the evo 212 and is highly recommended for gaming with haswell processors.
