ok so after researching ive decided to go with the i7 4770k.
for RAM ive decided on CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB. unless you guys can recommend anything better.
power supply i already bought the Antec HCP-1300 Platinum 1300W ATX12V / EPS12V Yes Yes 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
im just stuck on choosing the motherboard :/ 
ive read that i should go with a mobo that supports 4th generation cpu's such as the haswell.....does the asus sabertooth support that?
please help.
i was thinking either ASUS SABERTOOTH Z87 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

or this one ASUS MAXIMUS VI FORMULA LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX gaming board with double-sided ROG Armor, 23C-degrees cooler CrossChill

I'd get 8GB RAM instead of 16GB as the extra RAM would do LITERALLY nothing.

The Asus Sabertooth Z87 motherboard supports Haswell and is really good.

ive noticed that the sabertooth ram speeds go up to 1866 while the maximus go up to 3100.....does that make any difference?

Unless you wanna spend $750 on 3000Mhz RAM which I doubt you will, better to buy the Sabertooth which costs $20 less
