well here is a build for 1.5K for you.


CPU Intel Core i5-4670K $269.00
Mobo Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H $195
RAM G.Skill 8GB $109.00
HDD Samsung 256GB SSD $258
Western Digital 1TB 7200RPM $69.00

Case Fractal Design Core 3000 USB 3.0 (Black ) $89.00

EDIT: instead of GTX 770 you can go with a R9-280X GPU. it is a rebranded HD 7970ghz but much cheaper. and is roughly 5$ slower than GTX 770.

here is the link for it: R9 280X GAMING 3G

I know this build is over budget but I had to suggest it. Its $20 over. Its also MicroATX. GOLD rated PSU. Add another $30 and storage goes from 1tb to 2tb.
