I'm looking for a motherboard to finish my build. I plan on overclocking and playing games with it.

Also, I'd like to try and cut the budget back to 800, where should I make cuts?
* I'm planning on selling the 3 games that come with the card to help out some. (thinking I'll get at least $50)

You could buy a HD 7970 instead. It has similar performance to the GTX 770, bt cheaper. It consumes more power though.

Thanks for the input. That is a motherboard I have considered, I was just hoping something cheaper would work.

As for the video card, I'm not sure I trust Powercolor as a brand, and that particular card has a fair amount of negative feedback on newegg. I have considered buying a r9 280x though. I just thought the extra gig on the 770 would help future proof the system.

The R9 280x is a rebranded HD 7970. But the HD 7970 comes with free games.

If you buy the i5-4670K and Asrock Z87 Extreme 4 together at Microcenter, it costs $290 . There's a deal.

yeah but in store pickup only :(  I suppose I'll either pony up the extra $50 or get the 280x (which comes with battlefield 4)
