Solved

Need a good Motherboard, Cooling System and a Powersupply for the following:

Hello, I'm planning to build a PC but I'm quite new at it. So far, I am thinking of
i5-4670K(Processor)
Windows 7 64 bit(OS)
NvidiaGTX770(Graphic)
8GB of RAM(Memory)
1TB of HDD(Storage)
To purchase. However, since I am new at this, I do not know anything about Motherboards, power supplies and cooling systems. Could you mates please help me finish my shopping list? And I'd love my components to be cheap and easy to acquire.

  1. What is your budget on the components(Or system)? Are you planning on SLI in the future? Are you going to overclock at all?

    Well I'm trying to make it as cheap as possible. Not planning to do SLI, and could you please put different options for Overclocking and normal? Because I'm not really into overclocking...

    Even with no overclocking, I recommend this:
    Mobo:AsRock Z87extreme4, or MSI Z87-G45 GAMING.(considerig your K CPU version you need something like this)
    PSU: XFX 650W XXX series, or Corsair TX650W, considering the max TDP of GTX770 is 230W and requires- 42A and a 600W PSU minimum, then you should be fine.
    CPU cooling: Hyper 212 evo.

    +1 for PSU. But he wont need such high end motherboard, he isnt going to be doing SLI or overclocking on it tho. I was thinking about AsRock Z87-PRO4 or Z87-Extreme3.

    Really good mobos too, i was thinkig more on the idea, cause he is not thinking on OC activities now, but maybe on near future he changes his mind, and im almost sure he will, then he will need a mobo with better OC capabilities.
    eithter way, the mobos you recommend are good as well, so all depends on his budget.
  6. And for CPU cooling go with Hyper 212 evo, probably the best budget cpu cooling.
