Is this a good build? What should I change?

What I bought so far:
EVGA GTX 760
Rosewill CAPSTONE-750


What I picked out:
Intel Core i5-4670​ (should I get 4670k instead? is there much of a difference?)
MSI Z87-GD65​
1TB HDD​
AZZA Solano​​

I am not entirely sure on what brand RAM to get that works with this mobo. I know I want just 8GB, 16GB seems to be overkill ATM.

My Budget is around ~$800 to give you an idea of what I can afford.

The Intel Core i5-4670 basically doesn't allow overclocking, and the K version does.
I like G. Skill RAM. I have these in my PC:

I would recommend an SSD for your OS if it is in your budget.




Thanks for the recommendation. Adding the ram to my list. Sadly I can't afford a SSD as of right now but planning on buying one later in the year.

You think the mobo is fine though? It has some great reviews but will like any input.

It's fine. I would probably go with Asus on the motherboard, but that's just my opinion.

Yes, the Asus "PRO" version has been a staple for years.
