Hello!

I'm building my first ever PC for gaming and I just wanted to see if my build is looking okay, and what OS is best to use for gaming?

Will this system play better than the next gen of consoles if anyone knows?

I'll also be putting more HDDs in there but I was just getting one for now.

The seems looks good so far.
Perhaps some suggested changes?
Change to Core i5 4670K, this will shave off your total by quite a bit.
Get a 80Plus gold PSU
For OS use Windows 8.1 64bit

Thanks man.

Yeah, I was just talking to my old man about the CPU and the i7 only runs around 0.1 GHz faster than the i5

I've already got the 750w PSU :/ 
No doubt I'll end up swapping it out for a higher wattage one day though.

Should I get 8.1 Pro or standard?

+1 Biggest difference is the i7 has Hyper Threading if you don't need it, save the $100 and go 4670K

The pro have a few more features which home user will probably user never use like Hyper-V, Bitlocker, Domain support, and the ability to run dual sockets CPUs. Dual socket does not mean the number of cores in a CPU. It's the physical socket on a board.
If one was to get a dual socket board, they will need Windows 8.1 Pro or any other Professional OS. Home OS only support 1 CPU socket.
