Help me make a list for a completely new PC

So I need to give a list of all the components I want to a guy who is going to buy them and assemble the PC for me. So I need to put all the necessary information for each part.

WHAT PARTS I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE:

I don't want to overclock anything or SLI and anything else like that. I want a single GPU maybe like the GTX 780 TI (suggest me what brand) and the processor I7 4770 (non K) (or suggest me a better one if there is one) 16 GB Ram (1600 mhz?) I don't know what optical drive I would need, and tell me what Motherboard I would need as well as what PSU, (also tell me what else I'm missing)

WHAT I'M PLANNING TO DO WITH THIS PC:

So I'm planning to use this PC for 3 or more years. I'm not planning to upgrade it or anything, I want it to be able to play all games at max settings above 60 fps (don't know about Crysis 3) And next gen games also Max or High/Medium settings with 60 fps 1080p

Also before anyone suggest me that it would be cheaper with an I5 or 8 GB Ram. I'm not going to use it only for gaming, but for rendering also video editing. Basically I want it to be able to do everything just in case, but for now mostly gaming.


I would really appreciate any help I can get. Thanks.

I don't really have a budget, Just want a computer that has a gtx 780 TI 3GB 16 GB Ram and i7 4770 and for the rest of the parts, the better quality they are the better.

Are you saying that you have an endless budget or does the PC still need to be decent price/performance? Because otherwise you could maybe even build a ~$3k PC that will pretty much max out anything the next couple of years and will be very upgradeable in the future.

-Everything is from Amazon/Newegg and they all have free shipping, so it's fairly convenient.
-Locked i7 with a H87 chipset motherboard since you're not overclocking.
-250gb SSD to hold your os/programs for fast boot and loading times.
-2tb HDD for storage purposes.
-GTX 780 ti should max out anything at 1080p. It may not be able to max out every game in 3 years though, considering how fast the technology advances.
-The Define R4 is a great, roomy case with decent airflow but it's very silent due to the sound-dampening foam.
-Antec HCG620M is a high quality psu on sale at a decent price. It's also semi-modular to make cable management easier.

WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND AN H87 MOTHERBOARD IN YOUR HOLY MIND!!!!

A H87 chipset motherboard is perfectly fine since the OP is not overclocking. The only other advantage of a H87 chipset motherboard is the ability to SLI, but the Antec psu doesn't allow for SLI anyways.

Why get a Z87 chipset motherboard? It is packed with lots of features, but they will never be used and it will just be a waste of money.
2400mhz memory is just a waste of money because the difference increase over 1600mhz is very minimal.
1tb SSD? Really? You're not suppose to put everything onto the SSD. That's a huge waste of money. 250gb SSD is plenty for the OS and programs, don't put useless pictures onto the SSD. It's suppose to go on a regular HDD.

z87 has a bunch of benefits even if you don't overclock. Also with your build, if he wants to upgrade and do an sli with any graphics card, the answer is NO. He has an unlimited budget I guess you could say so I just wanted for him to give him high end parts. But that is true about what you are saying for a 1tb or 2tb hard drive and then a 250 gb ssd.

The main benefits of the Z87 chipset is for overclocking and SLI. The other benefits are useless for the average user.
I wouldn't trust that Rosewill psu to handle SLI GTX 780 ti. It's not that high quality and it's trying way too hard to attract customers with the LEDs. Also, there's no point of getting an expensive board just for the SLI. Something like this would be fine: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-z87a

I don't want to go overboard with the best of the best. But at the same time I don't want to go too cheap either. Like I should have mentioned that the SSD wont be necessary for me, I don't mind waiting a few seconds longer. And those builds are great, definitely going to keep those in mind.

For the psu, I would get a corsair ax760 or a seasonic 80+ gold or platinum psu

I really like this build except for the case, also the power supply. I rather buy this one just to be safe: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cmpsu...
Is this a good choice?
Also the case I would like to have: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-case-sgc5000... Tell me what you think about it,

Best solution

The case is excellent, but the psu is rather over-priced for what you're getting. 750w is overkill since the motherboard doesn't support SLI. So since it's only going to be a single gpu set-up, you're fine with 600-650w. Also, that is over-priced for 750w. You can get an 80+ Gold, fully modular, high quality 850w psu for $50 less than that.

Here is the final part list I decided to go with: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2x5gd I changed the Optical Drive and the PSU. I know 850w is Overkill but since it was cheaper then 750w, I rather have more than less. Just incase if I will ever want to upgrade something. Also I removed the SSD because of some minor things I wouldn't want to do if I had it, also to save some money.
