My First PC Build (A Few Questions)

Hello! This is my first ever post to the forum, and I really wanted to know the opinion of some of the members on this website. I've consulted it numerous times in the past , and each time it's been very helpful. I have read the other threads and posts about building a PC and the steps, but I still had some questions about my build (I haven't purchased anything yet, I've just been planning).



CPU: http://
GPU: http://
Motherboard: http://
RAM: http://
Cooler: http://
Power Supply: http://
HDD: http://
SDD: http://
Case: http://

I am fairly certain that the HDD, SDD, RAM, Motherboard and CPU are solid choices, but I do have some questions regarding the others.

GPU: I know the GTX 770 is a good card, but I am unsure whether I should buy the version with 2gb or 4gb GDDR. I have read that the 2gb is more than enough, but I don't know if that's only true for next-gen games when using the SLI and 2 of the cards, not just 1. I would be willing to purchase a second card, if the cost per performance would merit the addition $409, but it would be a couple months down the road.

Cooler: The cooler will cool the system sufficiently, I just question its reliability after reading some comments of it leaking. I'm not sure if it's user error, or manufacturer error.

Power Supply: My only question is if 750 W is too much power, or if 600 W would suffice.

Case: One more simple question: is the case too small to house all the components?

Also, if you noticed one piece of my build that is unnecessary, or something with a cheaper alternative that is still 90%+ as good, then please let me know! :)


If you managed to read all of this, thank you! - If you managed to read all of this and are able to answer anything, thank you even more! :D

I hope I didn't write too much or ask any stupid/out of place questions.

    Looks pretty good overall, might look at the Asus Z87-Plus or the Gryphon, think Asus has the best handle on the Z87s
