I currently have a low end gaming pc which lags on every game i play so my dad offered to get me a computer from our local computer store, i want to know whether this will be good enough to play warframe with or without live streaming/recording staying at 60fps. im playing on a 1080p monitor.
here are the specs:
Intel Core i7 4770K Quad Core with HT professionally overclocked to 4.4GHz
Asus Z87-K, Intel Z87 Chipset
16GB Corsair Vengeance Pro 2133MHz
3GB EVGA 780 Ti Superclocked
250GB Samsung Evo SSD & 2TB HDD
Microsoft Windows 8.1 64bit
Will this pc be good enough to run modern games? thanks

Good enough! Are you kidding me!. This is a solid build dear.

Make sure that your RAMs have 1.5volt and CAs timings of 10-11 not more than that. Rest you are good to go. Which PSU?

The processor's plenty, and look and some of the benchmarks for the card here

I'm no professional, but if that can't run any games, then something's wrong.

You could come down in price some by going to an i5 rather than the i7. The gaming experience will be the same.

I would recommend you to get minimum 650W PSU. Remember these things to check in the PSU:

Sufficient Amps on +12v rail (Check the label info of the PSU). Modern PSU are delivering more than 42Amps on +12v rail.
Efficiency of 85% or more (80+ Gold is good)

i was thinking that but it has hyperthreading which might be useful in the future, was thinking about getting the GTX Titan Black edition but its pointless spending a few hundred more for a extra 5fps.

No need to go for Titan (Btw Titan is actually not for gaming). 780 Ti is - What should I say - plentiful! Stick with it.

Keep in mind the Asus Z87-K lacks multi GPU support. Z87-A is better. I would actually suggest you get 2 x GTX780s instead of the ti version, which is very much overpriced.
You can drop to 8GB of RAM and an I5 as said above to fit 2 GTX780s + 750W PSU in your budget.

luckily my dads not bothered what i get as long as it lasts so i might aswell keep everything the same but might see if i could get the mobo swapped for Z87-A and get 2 780's. the guys at the shop will sort the PSU and that out for me. thanks for letting me know!

I know your dad's paying for this monster, but you could always build it yourself? You save a bit of cash, you know it better, and you have fun..!

If you're not confident or don't want the hassle I can understand though :)
