So I'm working on a PC build and I was just wondering if you guys thought this graphics card had the best bang for the buck. This PC is for a ton of gaming and maybe a little programming. If you see anything you think I should change let me know. I have a $2500 budget. Also, I probably won't be overclocking or any other modifications...I would prefer to stick with factory settings for the time being. Also, I have had people tell me I should focus less on looks, but I would really like this thing to look mean! However, I am willing to make sacrifices if it would mean major performance improvements.

Thanks for the help!

If you're stopping at $2500, you've got plenty of wiggle room with that setup for a 780 or 780 Ti, or hell, a second 770. The rest of your stuff looks fine. But the ASUS Maximus VI Formula is a little over kill if you don't plan to do any overclocking. If you plan to down the road, however, then it's a great board for that. You could save $100 and get the Maximus VI Hero though if you don't.

That being said, I have the V8 GTS cooler on my Maximus VI Hero and i7-4770k and it looks mean. :D  You'll like it, but I warn you now, it's a pain to mount.
