I have a 1300$ build that I would like to do for myself as well for gaming but on my particular pc I'm not planning to do any video editing just strictly gaming. My price came out to be $1295.82 (After mail-in rebates)

If you like this build, you can lower the PSU to the 650W version of it and buy yourself a cheap keyboard. I'm planning to SLI with my 770 when games become more demanding that's why i went with the 750W one (I hope it can handle it). I input a sli into this build and pcpartpickers estimated my total wattage to be at 653W.
