So I decided to go ahead and build my own pc because I heard that it was much better than buying one already made. The thing is that Im fairly new to this and i need some help. Ive been doing some research and i found these following parts. I know that i still need a case along with a case, power supply, and a cpu cooler. I would appreciate some insight on this build. I would like to overclock as well. What other parts do I need to buy? I am very new to this and i would like to order everything soon, possibly even this weekend.

Motherboard - Msi Z87 mpower LGA 1150 intel

RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU - Intel core I5 - 4670K

Graphics card - EVGA GTX 770

SSD - http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-HyperX-2-5-Inch-SH103S3-...

With a $1400 budget you might aswell go all out. I put in the NZXT phantom black a green full tower case with GREAT cable management options and a nice nVidia theme. And a 750w modular EVGA psu to go with the EVGA GTX 780. This is what i would buy if i had $1400 (although id probably get a better motherboard).

Why would you get an H100? There's better fans you can get for less money. And that Kingston drive is based on the old, slow, and crappy Sandforce 2.0 controller.

I would do this:

A little bit over the $1400 budget but you get a GTX 780TI. Grab what's on sale while you can get it.

He asked for the SSD so i put it in the build, but yeah there are better options out there. As far as the H100 goes i just feel like the closed loop water coolers have a cleaner look than air coolers, while giving similar results to high end air. And btw, if you are going to be spending $1500 on a computer i probably wouldn't get an Asrock motherboard.
