The title speaks for itself. I am at my builds budget, but if you think spending more money on other components would be worth it let me know. (Overclocking/SLI OR CROSSFIRE) But I really would like to stick to $1400 no higher because I still have a Monitor as well as a Keyboard and Mouse to buy. If you could also let me know if all of these parts are compatible that'd be great! Thanks!

P.S. You will see in my build I am looking at 3 different RAM stick sets, which set should I buy?
PP.S. You will also see that I named it the wishlist "Soul-PC", let me just say haters gonna' hate.
PPP.S. O.K., OK, Ok, ok, Okay, okay (which ever one it is) that last sentence sounds stupid.
PPPP.S. I don't even think this "PPP.S." crap is valid, nope it isn't P.S. stands for post sentence. Wait? Does that even work in the first place?
PPPPP.S. I have no life, lol :pt1cable: 

Here is the build: https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/25X4DHNF9JA...

Thanks for the help guys.

You can get a way better build for that kind of money. No reason to pay $1400 for a rig only to pair it with a sub par power supply (the Corsair CX series is one of the reasons why I absolutely despise store reviews). This would be a far better setup IMO:

Much better GPU and a power supply that will allow you to add a second 780 later on.

Thank you. This was very helpful. BUT, I think I will take a break from trying to choose my pc's parts and come back when I am coming up on hitting $1400 in my bank account! I am kind of a freak for future proofing (Making overclocking an option, Getting an i7 CPU, making sli an option, getting 16GB of RAM, ect) Thanks again!
