current set up is
i5-2500k
GTX 770 2gb by EVGA
cooler I am going to purchase is either
Phanteks TC-12DX / Cooler Master Seidon 120XL Liquid CPU Cooler
8gb ram 1333 MHz I do plan at somepoint to get rid of this ram and get at least 16gbs at higher MHZ
ATX case
COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II

I think the liquid cooler maybe over kill for what I want to accomplish.

the mother board I currently have is not worth mentioning cant over clock on it which is why I want to replace it.

I hope to get a standard over clock of 4.5. also this is my first time doing this and any helpful guides would be much appreciated. My goal with this OC is to play games such as Titan Fall and BF4 at max settings.

You should be able to play anything @ 1080p maxed out with that config. :)

Of course it will be a little different if you get a Gigabyte..

is there a big difference in getting the pro vs the entry level?

If you overclock then yes

If you overclock then yes


does the entry level board not allow over clocking?
