Ok i have finally decided to build my first Gaming PC after about a year of being convinced, i have followed some builds that other people have which fit my budget but i just need some reassurance that they will all work together.

Also any improvements you think i can make on the cooler or something are welcome!

Ive heard bad things about Rosewill PSUs. Get yourself a corsair, XFX or seasonic PSU.

As for CPU choice, the i7 isnt going to offer a substantial increase in gaming performance. If you want to save yourself some money get the i5-4670K. Completely up to you, if you have the money then migth as well stick with the i7

That motherboard is quite expensive I would double check you need all the features it gives, if you dont maybe get a cheaper Z87 board. Like the Z87-A. Also, according to PC Partpicker that Z87- PRO is $174 at microcenter, $25 cheaper than at amazon.

Hello.
Your system is great.
I have the same cooler for the same CPU and I see 54C on heavy CPU gaming load (final fantasy XIV, (trust me I got 3C less than when running prime95...)) at CPU on 3,7GHz.

Now just a suggestion.
GV-N780GHZ-3GD $539.99: Core Clock: 1019 MHz (Base) 1071 MHz (Boost) - Memory Clock: 6008 MHz review (one of many)
It's the greatest clocked GTX780 out there while its quiet and it has low temperatures.

edit: +1 for that XFX PRO 750W Black Edition PSU.
edit2: 3Dmark firestrike performance

The one that I linked is the Gigabyte 780 which is the normal GTX780 and it costs only $20 more than the EVGA version you had on your first post, while it offers great performance (around 10% more than EVGA's offer). The GTX780ti is priced at $699, $180 more than the EVGA and $160 more than Gigabyte's 780Ghz.

For 1080p I personally wouldn't bother with a 780ti :p

The thermal paste noctua is giving is very high quality, don't bother to buy an other. NT-H1

I will be honest. I never used any antistatic protection on any build (out of dozens) and I never had any problems. But If you want to be sure I guess its okie to use.

You do not need anti-static gloves/wrist-straps at all although it comes down to personal preference.
