Im looking to build a high end gaming pc for games like
Battlefield 4,The Witcher 3,Destiny,Titanfall,Dying Light
I am only going to do 1080p
This is my first time building a pc as i come from consoles and my friend is helping me build it as he said ps4 and xbox one are not worth the 500$ and i need high graphics
I know an i5 4670k is recommended but i want to be future proof
Any Recommendations are welcome (Especially with motherboards -- Asus Preferred)
My Budget is 2000$ - 2500$
My Build --

Intel 3.5 GHz LGA 1150 4770K i7 4th Generation Processor

Asus Z87 Pro Motherboard
Asus Z87-A Motherboard

Corsair Vengeance DDR3 2 x 8GB

Corsair CMPSU-650TX 650 Watts PSU

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Cooler

ZOTAC NVIDIA GTX 780TI 3GB DDR5 Graphics Card

What can i do to make it better and i really like the 780 Ti Graphics Card

I need a stable 60 + fps and im Not going to overclock maybe later down the road.

With a 2-2.5k budget, you could build a great system. This would be an amazing one, with the option to overclock the CPU down the road if/when it starts showing it's age http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2XdGQ

Thank you for all your answers really helped me a lot i made the changes (Also i dont want to sli the graphics card i want it to be a single gpu)

Im still confused with the mother boards one build suggested
Asus Maximus VI Hero ATX LGA1150 Motherboard and other
Asus MAXIMUS VI FORMULA ATX LGA1150 Motherboard

Is the z87 pro not good??

choosing a motherboard is really bugging me so please explain the reason for choosing the mother boards

And one of the most important things i forgot to mention is that i watch a lot of movies / sitcoms and plan on keeping the pc on most of the time so i need a 24/7 durable mobo probably will go with the Corsair H100i liquid cooler

The z87 pro would be a fine motherboard, and is signicantly less expensive than the ones we've listed here. Pretty much any board will be ok to be on all the time, so that shouldnt have an impact on the one you decide to go with. I simply chose a high end board to reflect the budget, that has pretty much any option that you would need.
You also don't need any more than 8 gigs of ram, unless you are doing a lot of serious vidoe editing or something along those lines, games/movies just dont need much ram.
You'll also notice that I didn't choose a case for you. Very simply, without serious overclocking or multiple radiators going in your system, it pretty much boils down to how you like the way the case looks, and having usb 3.0 ports. With the h100i, that will limit your options a bit,but there a multitude of cases in the 100 dollar range that would work well for your build.
Also, do you need a monitor/keyboard/speakers as well ? Any preference on Windows 7 or Windows 8?

For that much you could also consider a 2011 system with the 4930k. I also recommend a good water cooler like a corsair h100.

You should get a quad channel ddr3 ram kit if you are going for 16gb, 1600 MHz minimum - faster if the price difference isn't huge. The 780 ti is a solid choice and will destroy anything @ 1080p

Here is a build with everything, including monitor, speakers, keyboard and mouse. Chose the case thats there pretty much as a filler, and it will easily hold all the parts I've listed, has some LED fans, and has simple styling. Also changed the ram to a different product line from G Skill, this was simply to not have a blue or red stick of ram with the yellow motherboard. If that's not an issue at all for you, the G Skill ripjaws x or Corsair Vengeance ram would be solid choices, both with lifetime warranties. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2Xlya

I think im gonna go with the Asus maximus hero and since im not overclocking should i invest in liquid cooler cause im pretty much gonna keep it on most of the time.I also dont need a screen as i already have a good one and i also have win 8 pro and im gonna do most of my gaming on a razer sabertooth controller cause thats what i use all the time
On a serious note will my system be able to provide 60+ fps in the next 4-5 years or will i have to upgrade
I want to set everything to ultra
Also a really good case with nice space and good cable management would be appreciated in the 100$ range as i dont want to spend too much on a case

Without overclocking, the stock intel cooler will keep your cpu cool enough, though they can get noisy. The h100i is a great cooler, but without overclocking, it's really just a waste of money. It would give you the option to overclock later down the road if you decide to go that route in the future(in a few years when games start being more demanding). Keeping it on all the time won't have as much of an effect on the system temps than the actual gaming itself. Without any overclocking, temps simply shouldnt be an issue, as long as your case has decent airflow.
As for the fps, with that set up you should be good to go for a few years. It would be a great system.
For choosing a case, it really boils down to personal preference. If it was my system, I think I would go with the 500r. It's only 89 bucks on newegg right now, looks good(though simplistic) and has great cooling, along with room for a 240mm radiator at the top.

The gtx 780 ti, simply, is the FASTEST single gpu that you can buy. Amd has nothing that really comes close.
