New PC Gaming Build - Little help required :)

So this is my first time building a Gaming PC and want to see if you would change anything. I am looking to buy this today! Not bothered about overclocking but might want to try it in the future. It will be mainly used for casual gaming but would like to play battlefield on ultra.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The Asrock board has better power delivery to the CPU than the Gigabyte board making it a better overclocker. Also you can't run a GTX 780 and 4670k as an entry level corsair CX series psu, you want a better quality one for a build with this caliber.

    So just to clarify, the build I made would be the best option?

    Very new at this and don't want to start buying the wrong thing from the outset..

    Cheers for reply's also!
  5. I would say so, all very nice parts with awesome build quality. One thing to note (not being negative or anything) is that the EVGA PSU comes with red pcie cables wich might ( might not ) look horrible behind the window in the define r4

    If that's the only issue then I'm not too worried, I was expecting everything on my build to change and as a first build I won't mind so much! :)

    Cheers again for help!
  7. Best answer
    No problem, enjoy your build!
  8. Yeah, Definitely a beastly gaming PC. Have fun when you get it :)

    Beast build. I suggest getting a Samsung EVO 140GB if you want an SSD.
