Hello guys,

I don't have a desktop so I need to start to build a new...
This is my ideia:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($226.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Motherboard: ASRock Z87 Extreme3 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($114.99 @ Microcenter)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($69.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.98 @ OutletPC)
Video Card: Asus Radeon HD 7750 1GB Video Card ($124.99 @ Amazon)
Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case ($57.99 @ NCIX US)
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 600W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($54.99 @ Microcenter)
Monitor: Asus VG248QE 144Hz 24.0" Monitor ($266.99 @ B&H)
Total: $976.91

But the 7750 will be change in the future for GTX780 because I don't have money enough now.
I can't pass from $1000 :/ 
It's good enough to play games like, Need for speed rivals and Bf4 ?

Please give me recommendations!!

Thanks

Ps.: I really like this monitor, but if is a good ideia change... please tell me which monitor.

Your build looks good, but you will need a good heat sink. Pick up a Cooler Master Hyper 212+. I'm also going to make a recommendation that I don't usually do, but here goes... The on board GPU on the 4670K Is actually pretty good as far as on board goes, so I'd opt out of the GPU for now, and then you can buy a 780 sooner. That's what i'm doing (i've got almost the exact same setup as you do) until I can afford either a 770 or 780. I am running Linux, so I don't have a bunch of games on it, but so far I get a SOLID, I mean nothing higher, nothing lower, 75fps in Minecraft, and a SOLID 75.5fps in the graphics benchmark from the Linux store.

UPDATE: I'd also try to add an SSD with he money you save from going on board GPU so that Windows runs faster.

-Still a great monitor
-Faster RAM
-Awesome heat sink - it keeps my cpu at an ambient temp of 25-28 degrees.

When I go back I will know if I need to change something.

Thanks!
