Gaming PC Build based on intel core i5 4440 and Nvidia gtx 760.

Hello guys,
I am intending to build a gaming PC. I will play titles like COD: Ghosts, Tomb Raider, NFS Titles and games like skyrim and witcher 2 that will be released in future at 1080p in near max eyecandy. Now I dont think that buying an unlocked processor is necessary because most of the games dont require that much of processing power from the CPU side. Instead I will invest more on GPU (760 over R9-270x). Now I want advice on motherboard because I am confused about the PCI-E speeds. What motherboard should I get. I may SLI after an year or so.
My budget for a mobo is ₹12000 (India, exchange rate 1$=60₹ approx, reference webpage for mobo- http://www.flipkart.com/computers/computer-components/motherboards/pr?sid=6bo,g0i,y7i&otracker=ch_vn_computerco_subcategory_Motherboards).
About RAM, I want to have 8gb corsair vengeance DDR3 1600. Should I have 1x8gb or 2x4GB and why.
I will have a 120 GBSSD and a 2 TB Seagate Barracuda(pre owned).
Will a good 650W power supply be enough for this?
And lastly, is a 27" monitor too big?

  1. mobo Asus Z87-A - for sli and crossfire
    2x4 GB is better , using dual channel memory access
    ssd Samsung 840 EVO
    650W psu is enough for R9 270X and GTX 760
    GTX 760 is 14% faster than R9 270X
  2. Asus Z87-A is priced at ₹14000. I am looking for a sub 12000 mobo. Thanks for the info on RAM

    Means I have to look for a mobo with 2x pci-e 3x16 port? What happens if we put a second card in a lesser speed port such as x8 or something. I am asking it because ASrock service in India is scanty. Asus and MSI ones are good. Also, what do u recommend for a screen size?
    This mobo looks good. I will go for it if I dont find an MSI or Asus

    A lot of prcessors support 1 x16 and 2 x8 ,like i5 4440 . i.e. no need of 2 x16 .
    http://ark.intel.com/products/75038/Intel-Core-i5-4440-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_30-GHz
    As for the screen size - different persons - defferent preferences .19 inch minimum. My uncle has 27 Samsung and is very happy .What a man !
  6. So will it hamper the performance if I choose a CPU that supports only 1 x16 slot while in SLI mode? I mean if the second card goes into the x8 slot, will it result in a slower performance?

    not at all .Even graet i7 has the same support !

    but what to say about AMD FX . 99.5% of the mobo s support only pci-e 2 !!!
