I came up with a build to play video games such as Battlefield 4 at ultra and do video editing at 1080p would like to know if this build is ok for what i want. I would also like to know if i can get a better deal for something with the same performance at a cheaper price

very nice build. Will run every game on ultra with no problem. Would suggest moving up to a gtx 780 / 780ti from gtx 770 because it really is worth the price.

I second that, with your budget you should be able to squeeze a GTX 780 into that build

Did you copy this build from another thread? Personally I'd change it to:

You can keep the i7 4770k, but I'd definitely change the motherboard since the one on the original post is a little overkill IMO, and if you're gaming you shouldn't need more than 8GB of RAM. Not sure how much you'd need for video editing, you can always beef it up if you'd like. By getting a cheaper CPU/RAM/mobo you're able to get a nicer GPU. Up to you though.

EDIT: lol, right after it was suggested. :lol:

Well seeing he wants some video editing and productivity based applications, I'd keep the 4770k and 16 gigs of RAM just in case :lol:

Hence why I added the little bit at the end. ;)  Yeah, it's probably best.
