Hi there!
I'm currently looking at components for a new computer and I would really like your advice on this rig, and how it would work.
Thanks.

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K

MBO: MSI Z87-G41

Memory: GeIL EVO Veloce Series DDR3-1866 8GB

Hard drive: Seagate Desktop HDD ST1000DM003 1 TB

GPU: ASUS GTX770 2GB OC

Case: Zalman Z9 Plus miditower ATX
.
PSU: XFX Core Edition PRO750W

Disc drive: LG GH24NSB0

My budget is at around 1200$.

That looks like a good gaming build, I believe the motherboard does not support SLI so you could drop down a size or two on the PSU to 550-650watt and add something like the Cooler Master hyper 212 EVO for overclocking the CPU.

CPU - great choise, best cpu for gaming atm
Motherboard - good for your system, good oc potentials
8 GB of ram is sufficient for gaming
HDD doesn't matter
-
GTX 770 good choise, though I'd go for a MSI or Lightning 770 :)  ( recetly MSI got much more better and they are finally * making good components )...Aaaaand It's more powerfull than the ASUS one :) 

PSU - xfx and seasonic are the best in PSU's :) 

How it would work?

- All games max...4670k will handle everyhing for few years just like 770.
- 770 GTX gets BF4 on max at 60-70 fps ( 1920x1080 ) and it will max it out everything in the next years :)

I would suggest following changes:

Mobo: Asus Maximus VI Hero
PSU: Corsair GS 800W
Chassis: Cooler Master HAF 942 Full Tower (If you have that much budget)

CPU, GPU, RAM are good enough.

* - overkill board for 1200$ PC
- 800W is also an overkill for a single GPU :)

Thank you very much for the fast answers, guys!

Good idea to go a little down with PSU and then getting a CPU cooler. I'll remember that. :) 

Rules, the Lightning is a little expensive for my budget, but do you suggest this card? http://www.computersalg.dk/produkt/1097377/msi-n770-tf-...

EasyLover, I really don't want to go that far with my budget, but thank you very much, anyway. :) 


BTW, I plan on upgrading my rig in maybe a year or two.

Get any 770 that is the cheapest. They all perform basically the same and it is not a very hot card so any cooler style really is fine.

Ok. Your call at the end dear. Here is one GTX 770 options for you. If you can consider Asus 770 OC 2GB then why not EVGA a premium brand without any doubt and even at a same price as that of Asus. Recommended PSU was on the basis of your future upgrade even if at that time you plan to SLI then you would be at peace of mind that your PSU supports SLI. If not then 750W is sufficient. Chassis is more of a personal choice but pl ensure that it has a good air flow.

Thank you, Easy. :)  I think I'll go with the EVGA one, and do anyone recommend that I use a Thermaltake Commander MS-I case, instead of the one I've chosen? :)
