Hi,
Well it is that time when my old computer is not able to keep up with ( not the Kardashians) the new computers and games.
So, I am starting putting up a list of components. I would like pretty soon to start buying all the parts and I would love if after seeing the list of components, somebody can give me feedback regarding these components. Whether they are matching or not or if they can be improved or i could go with some other that may be cheaper.

I can't really say that I am a super knowledgeable in computers, but i did read a lot of info on the internet about building my own system.

Thank you for your feedback if you guys have a chance to review my list.

Here is the link from a website that I have seen people making reference to:

ok. you might want to wait 2 weeks. amd is coming our with 2 new cards, the r9-290x and r9-290, which both should perform on par with or faster then that 780... i'm not saying you should get one of the new cards, i'm saying the price of the 780 should come down a lot. so you'll kick yourself for not waiting to buy it a few weeks.

second, i really don't like that psu.

third, that gigabyte is the only z87 motherboard i've heard bad things about thus far. it's not a lot of bad but there does seem to be some quality control issues with it. Make sure you do thorough research on the warranty and return policies before purchasing it.

thanks, i will wait to see if i can get some deals during the thanksgiving on components. In terms of motherboards I heard people saying really good things about Gigabyte mobos. I could go with an ASUS as i believe they would be the next in line. so if i would keep Gigabyte do you know a good z87 that is better than the z87-ud4h?

if not Gigabyte, then which of the Asus would be a good one?

Mostly I want the PC for gaming, just to mention that.

Yes, I would like to do some overclocking. I mean i plan in keeping the computer in a very well ventilated area and cool to keep it running smooth. But i am still not sure how my components match.

Thank you badboyrog, so an Asus Hero would be a better option for overclocking?
I will keep that in mind.
