Hi, I want to build my own custom gaming computer. Can you help me choose better parts and the PSU that I'm going to need? Feel free to suggest other parts that will fit my budget. My budget is around $ 1000. I can't really decide on which of these two builds that I'm going to consider:

INTEL BUILD: (Looking to overclock)
Intel Core i5-4670K
AsRock Z87 Extreme4 OR Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H OR MSI Z87-G45 Gaming ???
MSI GTX 770 TwinFrozr OC 2gb
G.Skill RipJawsX 1600 8gb 2x4
1.0TB WD Caviar Blue Sata3 7200rpm
Corsair Hydro H100i OR Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo ???
Aerocool Strike X One Chassis
PSU: ???

AMD BUILD: (Looking to overclock also)
AMD FX-8350
Asus 990FX Sabertooth r2.0 OR AsRock 990FX Extreme3 OR MSI 990FXA-GD65 ???
MSI GTX 770 TwinFrozr OC 2gb
G.Skill RipJawsX 1600 8gb 2x4
1.0TB WD Caviar Blue Sata3 7200rpm
Corsair Hydro H100i or Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo ???
Aerocool Strike X One Chassis
PSU: ???

Thanks! :)

Change the psu 100%, you should look at Seasonic, antec, xfx. For the build, its all about budget really, oh if you do get amd, get the sabretooth over the msi. Hope it helps

Thanks for the reply. The Aerocool Strike X One is the case ;)  About how much power do I need for this rig?

the 4670k will get you better performance if you plan on overclocking. The MSI motherboard would be the one I would choose of the 3 you have listed.

i5-4670K hands down.

The FX-8350 is behind about 35% in Skyrim and consistently in 95% of the games to a lesser degree on average. A few NEWER games work about equal with it and the i5.

I'd get the Gigabyte board myself, Asrock 2nd.
