I'm building a gaming pc and I'm going the nvidea intel route. I doubt if I'll over clock the CPU, however I plan over clocking the gpu. I'm hoping to put a gtx 770 sc in my build, but I don't know what mobo to pair it with. I'd like an ssd to install my OS to and an hdd for games. I'd prefer a moduler psu in my build. The OS is included in the price limit. Any suggestions on my components

Well under budget and everything you need. Also gave you a large SSD so you can have you OS and games on it, as games will benefit from being on the SSD, and usually you want all programs on your SSD and then music and videos on the HDD.

@woltej1, how would games benefit with ssd over hdd other than reducing their loading time?

You could get a GTX780 and yet keep your build under budget.

They install faster and load times is a big deal, both starting the game and in game load times are improved.

I don't believe they make a difference as far as getting you more FPS, but for convenience and overall time SSD are worth it.

After a quick search I did find that SSD avoid the problem of game stuttering caused by your own system, like back ground applications starting when your playing. So it kind of improves FPS.
