HI guys thanks for your help in advance. This will be my first time building a custom PC. I usually play games like Simcity, and mostly world of Warcraft. I would like to play those games on ultra-settings with good FPS. I am planning to buy:

CPU: Intel i5 4670K

Ram: G.Skill ripjaws X series (2*8gb) 240 pin DDR3 2400,
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...

Graphic card: GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
So far about $688

Can you please make a suggestion regarding which motherboard should I buy. I want to keep this build at around $1200-1300
If you have any other suggestions regarding the ram and CPU please let me know I appreciate your help!

Quite a good build by now. What u need to do now is to buy a good 128gb ssd. A 1tb hdd. A z87 mobo from asrock asus or gigabytes. If u wanna achieve good oc a good cpu cooler like cooler master 212 evo will be a good choice.

A psu about 600w is also recommended

MSI Z87-G45/ASUS PRO. You can use a psu like corsair Cx500W/600W only if u don't want to do SLI in future otherwise get something like the TX750.

Hi thanks for the fast reply. Regarding the hard drive I am planning to use my current hard drive. And I am sorry what is the purpose for SSD (sorry kinda new to this).

I will need a good cooling system (should have mentioned that), I will be buying a 750 power supply (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...) it will be about $125 paired with a Mid tower (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...) $54.

Can you tell me how much more the motherboard and SSD will cost?

Compared w/ reg. HDD, SSD has better reading/writing speed. (SSD is Solid Disk Drive, compared w/ HDD "Hard Disk Drive") So when playing games the loading speed will be improved n' u don't have to wait for long.
