My first PC Build for gaming

Hello everyone I have decided that i want to build a gaming pc. My budget is from $1000-1500. Now i want to be able to play pc games at high/max settings with this build such as BF3, Bioshock Infinite, Crysis 3, and most important the next gen ones such as BF4 and TitanFall. Also to note is that i want this build to last me at least 5 years or so until i would start needing upgrades. Thanks

    One change I might make is changing the i5 to an FX, as all your games except one favor the FX. It would save you money and let you get a better cooler as well. Hope this helps!
  2. Thanks for the response but I'm not sure if that is what I'm going for, also I would like to ask why you set up two graphics card of 760 and not just a 2gb 770? If no difference really i rather not change it. Thanks
  3. Why is it not what you're going for? And the two 760s outperform a titan. They are much more powerful then a 770
  4. Wow, your right. I just did a research to see if it were true and you was correct sir. Well, the reason i said i was not sure was because you changed up a lot of my pc build. however, i do agree with you that your build is better than mines, but is the cooler that you added better than the one i put? Also is it really needed to add the other storage part? Thanks for the fast reply man.

    If you don't need the storage then remove the HDD and add the cooler you wanted. Your cooler is better then mine, I simply chose the cheaper one for the budget and opted to get better main components.

  7. Alright, I have two more questions if you don't mind. One, how different is the processor you choose and the one i picked. Second, is Pcpartpicker true? As in if it says that everything is compatible will all of my parts fit in my case perfectly? especially if i would have the two GTX 760 SLI that you have recommended.
  8. Also was the case you choose was because of preference and is the power supply you choose is more than enough to support my build? thank you
  9. For gaming both CPUs will perform nearly exactly the same. The build is completely compatible as well. All parts will also for in your case. The case I chose was simply good reviews and such. The PSU will also be good for your build.
  10. Ah okay one more thing! i read bout the having double of gtx 760 SLI would make a lot more noise than the 770 because of the power its using. Now is the noise really that loud of enough that i should have a water cooling fan?

    It will produce more noise/heat but not too much. In other words its not a big deal at all. Stock cooling is good.
  12. Also would G.Skill F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL be a better choice than the one you choose or similar? because i read good things about the RIpjaws one than the one you choose. Thanks =)
  13. Oh and more thing (Lol i have said that already i know) does it make a difference if i switch up the brand of gtx 760 sli like one EVGA and one Gigabyte?
  14. Ram brand doesn't really matter much at all. The ram I picked is quite good for the price. And brand doesn't matter much. I'd go EVGA if price is almost the same.
  15. Alright cool man thanks for all the quick replies just wanted make sure that me playing like an all nighter (10+ hours straight) will not effect my performance or endanger my pc build of overheating or anything such because I play LOL and WoW a lot and most likely will to play FF14 ARR so just wanted to make sure that this build will def take care of me playing for excessive.
