About two weeks ago I decided not to buy any of the next-gen consoles and build a decent gaming PC - this is what I came up with:

CPU: i5-4670k or i7-4770k
I don't plan to overclock from the start but I guess it's nice to have the option

CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14
It may not be the cheapest but the reviews are really great

Motherboard: Asus Z87-Pro or Asus Z87 Sabertooth
the Z87-Pro should be enough but the Sabertooth looks really great – is it worth the extra money quality wise?

Video Card: Asus/Gigabyte/EVGA GeForce GTX 770, 2GB or Asus R9 280x
somebody gave me the advice to take Asus if I also take a Asus mobo, is this really better?

Case: Fractal Design Define R4 or Corsair Vengeance C70
I think both should have enough room for future upgrades/changes so basicly it comes down to 'does the R4 make really that big of a difference on the noise level'

Power Supply: XFX Black Edition 750W 80Plus Gold or OCZ Silencer MK III 750W 80Plus Gold

I'm also going to buy Corsair Vengeance (8Gb, 2 x 4) an Samsung SSD Pro 128 GB and a Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD.

I'm know there are cheaper builds but I want to make sure I have a well balanced/quality build.
any feedback is welcome.
so wich parts would you chose?

I don't really have a set budget... maybe around $1500 - less if possible more if necessary.

never really looked into Zotac nor BitFenix but both would be available at the store I'm buying from.
the only problem is at the store I'm buying from there are no Rosewill products and also wow 1000w why that much?

Fractal R4 is good buy for case. Bitfenix is just new so I did put that in just to show how it looks :) 
1000w psu is bit overkill but it was cheap in US so it was good buy. (bigger is better

For one video card 550-650w psu is good enough. For SLI or CF 850 or bigger is good.
Zotac is really good brand. Bit unknown side but really good quality. And long warranty :)
