with that budget, you can get GTX 780 or 780 Ti instead
you can cut budget from case, sound card, psu, cooler, mobo, and BR drive

this is what I got makes much more sense. if i need all that extra stuff i'll get it later I just want a optimal gaming experience for now. but if you could point me to an adequate case that'd be lovely. something that can fit the water cooler i selected and lots of additional fans I do intend on overclocking the cpu a bit.

even a case with the possibility for a little custom loop would be sweet I wouldn't mind slapping a waterblock on that gpu some day.

I know i'm asking a lot but also if there is a motherboard with more features for around the same price you could recommend that'd be sweet i just don't stay in touch with the technology world enough to know anymore

it is a revision of your build, with better price/performance parts selection
popular mobo from asrock
better ram, on sale
GTX 770 2GB, no point of getting 4GB version
All corsair brand, psu HX850, cooler H110, 750D
you should pick popular Corsair SP 120 for fan, or its quite version

with the lower budget, you can freely go for GTX 780/Ti
