What do you guys think of this build? What would you change and how would you trim down the price?

Intel Core i7-4770K Processor and Asus Z87-K Motherboard Bundle
(ordering this)
gtx 670 graphics card
8g ddr3 ram (probably going to add more ram)
750w corsair cx psu
Everything look good? Anything I should change?

if you want to cut down the price a 600w psu would be just fine.

If you're planning to upgrade later on the 750w would be fine as well.

My suggestion to you is, if you're going to use this for gaming, get an i5 and change the graphics card to a 770

Hey, thanks for the reply!
It will definitely be for gaming. thing is I already own the gtx 670 and the 750w psu, got them both on black friday for about 250 dollars, :) 
Is the i5 better? Plenty of benchmark software say the i7 is leagues better.

the i7 is better, but as for gaming, you'll notice more of a performance increase from a better graphics card rather then a cpu.


I have a i7 4770k oced to 4.2Ghz with a gtx 670
I get about 50 fps on bf4 ultra settings.

my friend has a i5 3770k with a gtx 770
he gets 60 fps on bf4 ultra settings

both 1080p monitors and 8gb 1600 Ram
