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.
anyone else have some thoughts? Especially on which mobo and why
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)
