Solved

Looking for final approval before buying components.

I think I've finally settled on a build, just hoping to receive some feedback before I start purchasing. Thanks for any help in advance!

  1. Best answer
    Good but if you plan to play BF4 at ultra settings, 3GB model of the GTX 770 would be helpful...
  2. Looks good to me! See no reason to criticize individual parts.
  3. Looks good but instead of the 770 i'd advise the 7970, any of the highend 7970's will be better and cheaper. All 7970's are 3GB VRAM.

    This is just an example of the cheaper ones. but you can OC the shit out of this card without it heating up much.

    The new NVidea drivers are rather shitty if you want my opinion, many cases at the moment of drivers crashing on the nvidea side of things. Recently (past 3 years) I percieve that the AMD/ATI drivers are much better.

    Good luck and enjoy your PC
