So I'm putting together a pc for gaming and some video and photo editing. I want to keep is moderately priced right now looks like its going to be around $950. I have a hard drive already
Parts List:
i5-4670k $225
ASRock z87 extreme 4 $118
G.Skill ripjaws 2x4GB ddr3-1600 $50
gigabyte gtx 770 4Gb $385
Corsair Cx 430w $45
Corsair 300R case $70
Im not sure about the ASRock motherboard but the price is really good. If you see anything wrong and if there is anything I can do to save a bit let me know.

you need a better power supply like XFX 650W - $69.99 or Corshair CX 600M - $52.99
because 430w is way too less for combination of those specs, GTX 770's minimum requirement is a 500w of power supply so yes you need more..

your case seem overpriced than here:

though these case can save a bit (just options, 300R is decent too):
NZXT Tempest 210 - $55
Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus (Black) - $54

otherwise its all great!
for your purpose of gaming at Ultra@1080p and Video editing/rendering : -)

You said PC is going to be used for video/photo editing too. If you will also record gameplay there is no CPU that can compare to AMD FX 8350. It's 8 core potential fully unlocks when you are multitasking. And it's a lot cheaper than i5. And Battlefield 4 is optimized for AMD more not to Nvidia like BF3 was. So you could get AMD radeon HD r9 series 280x or 290 because they both Can compare to GTX 770 and they are cheaper with new AMD Mantle technology wich prevents FPS drops and awesomly reduces lag. If you ask me, I am in doubt is 4 gb too much for that GPU. With 760, 2gb version had better FPS in Far Cry 3, Crysis 3, Sleeping dogs, Battlefield and Metro than 4gb version. Thats because GPU frequency is not enough for ha ammount of memory. So choose wisley. And ASrock is ASUS under other name but origina ASUS is better with more technologyes and reliabiity. Socket AM3+ motherboard with best performance/money ratio is ASUS M5A97 R2.0. Good luck with system build!

Not sure if Im going to record gameplay yet. The video editing I was referring to was going to be dslr footage and I've just always been told Nvida is better for things like Adobe Premiere. I was thinking about the 2gb vs 4gb on the gpu and say on here that 4gb would help with future proofing a bit for games, but Ive also heard you can run into problems with some games not seeing the ram. I'll definitely have to look at AMD though .
