Hey guys, I just wanted some input on my build before I go ahead and make a stupid decision and purchase it. Mostly looking for a high end gaming computer, let me know if there's anything you'd change, etc.!

Also, I'm having trouble deciding between the HD 7970 or the 770 right now. What would you choose?

Thanks in advance for the help!

You decide

Other item, to consider ....

If you been reading the recent monitor reviews, nVidia Lightboost continues to impress reviewers.
The frame lag / CF issue has not as yet been fixed with AMD's 13.8 drivers.

-AMD MoBo and Intel CPU ?

- Ya RAM at 6GB is a real oddball

I'll come up w/ something else

Best solution

Again your MoBo and CPU and RAM are all incompatible (well RAM might work but all of today's systems are either dual or quad channel)

MoBo GFX Combo - $621 - MSI Z87-G45
GFX - included - MSI Gaming N770 TF 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 770

CPU - $230 - Intel Core i5-4670k

Case - $105 - Corsair 500R
PSU - $120 - Corsair TX850

RAM - $72 - (2 x 4GB) Muskin CAS 9 DDR3-1866

Cooler - $80 - Phanteks PH-TC14

HD - $85 - WD Black 1 TB
SSD - $142 - Samsung 840 Pro 128GB

DVD Writer - $20 - Asus DVD Burner

$155 for ya original external GD and OS Upgrade .... ya dont need brackets w/ Corsair case

About the same price but everything works and ya got some significant upgrades.
