Im decide to go for a i4770K + gtx780 build. But I do not know much for other hardware choice as using laptop only for 5 years... So I wonder what would the right build be for the rest of the part.
My main concern is if the fan/cooler will fit in, coz I heard ram height could potentially cause some probs. And im not sure if a random case would do the job... The budget is unlimited(it;s already around $1500... why should I care about few dollars difference on power supply and so on anyway)

btw I am a candian buyer, so would be great if they can be fond in tigerdirect.ca(as linked) or other canadian on-line stores.


The choice I've made:

EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked Video Card - 3GB GDDR5, PCI-Express 3.0 (x16), 1x Dual-Link DVI-D, 1x Dual-Link DVI-I, 1x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI, DirectX 11.1, SLI, Dual-Slot, Fan, (03G-P4-2783-KR)

If it is expensive look case like Fractal R4 / Corsair 750D

Fractal R4 is good solid case for just 80$ price.

Edit. If you look 16GB memory then this is good buy.

From Canada buy something like this. For just gaming you really do not need 4770k. Or 16GB memory. 8GB memory and 4670k is much better price and enough cpu for all games. Only couple games benefit over HT + 8 treads. But sure 4770k is best cpu if you look single core performance. It is just too expensive. You can OC the 4670k to mach 4770k performance.
