Hello. I'am gonna buy a gaming computer, and before I buy it I wanna learn how to overclock :) . So I will probably buy this system:

2x R9 290X in crossfire
CPU i7 4770k
CPU cooler: Hyper 212 evo
MOBO: MSI z87-G45
Case: Corsair 650D

So yeah. Thats it. How much do you guys think I can overclock. I've been looking on youtube and I found this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mLP3pGvnDU

Should I just follow it, or should I overclock to 4.4?

How far you can overclock a particular system depends on many factors, such as the quality of the MB, the quality of the CPU, the capacity of the cooler, the quality of the thermal paste application, and on and on. You "should" be able to get to 4.2 relatively easily, but after that things start to heat up rather quickly.

I didn't watch the vid so I can't comment on that.

Here are some links to additional Haswell OC info:

I would say that is a "good" quality MB. Not great or excellent, but definitely better than what I have!

That's a tough one but I think that it comes down to personal preference. Some ppl like MSI and others prefer Asus. Both are good!

Here is a side by side comparison of the boards on Newegg. The Asus is significantly more expensive: MB Comparison

One thing to note here. I have to be honest about MSI. Some ppl have had problems with their "Killer NIC". The Intel onboard LAN of the Asus board "MAY" be a better solution, but I don't know that for a fact.

Here is a comparison that THG did. This one compares the MSI Z87-G65: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/z87-haswell-motherb...

And here is another THG review of lower priced Z87 boards including the MSI Z87-G45: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/z87-express-motherb...

I edited the Newegg link so that it works now.

I wouldn't expect any significant differences in Gaming performance. That will depend mostly upon the GPU that you select.

So a if I choose a MSI mobo and buy a MSI graphic card. Will that give me more performance that I would got if I bought a ASUS mobo and a MSI graphic card? How many fps will it be? 1-3?

You don't have to buy an MSI GPU if you get an MSI MB. Asus, EVGA, MSI, etc. all work with both MSI and Asus MB.

FPS will depend upon the CPU and the specific graphics card that you get.

Is this a gaming rig? Cause if it is you may as well go with the i5 4670K and save some money.

I can't comment on the R9 290X. You'll have to use Google for more info. Otherwise, the build looks good.
