So this is my first time building a computer for my personal uses, and I will be gaming a lot, so I have a few question to ask.


Is this a good build, can I go cheaper?

is there any good midcase under $100 everything listed?

Is there any cheaper cpu with similar performances?

is there cheaper motherboard that support sli and is reliable?

Do i need a 850watt psu? any recommendation on reliable cheaper one that will work with this build.

Looks good, but if I were you I would get the 4GB models of the 770, I normally don't like those, but for SLI it would be worth it even if it can't use the extra 2GB as effectively due to the 256 bit memory bus. Either that or CrossFire two R9 280X's, which have 3GB VRAM on a 384-bit memory bus. Otherwise, great build!

You could try an 800, but I'd want the 850 and that one has a rebate that will come back to you (hopefully ;)  )

Okay, then I would highly recommend either two of the 4GB models of the GTX 770, two R9 280X's, or, if you can, two GTX 780's but that may drive the price up a lot. I would say for that resolution you would want 3GB of VRAM or more, just to be safe.
