So I'm building a mini ITX system for gaming/general use and I've decided on all the parts except for the processor and CPU. I kind of want to overclock in the future but it's not as important to me as a longer lasting gaming system. This is my build:

I'm planning to be playing games such as bf4 at 1080p.Cooling is also not an issue as I have 4 120mm fans from my last build, and I don't need an OS system. Help would be appreciated, thanks :D

well if you want overclock then you need k model and Z87
if o/c isnt in your plans then non k and H87 or even B85 would suffice and save some money.
whatever cpu-mobo combo you choose for 760 this psu would be more than enough! http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550s... and as previously mentioned way better tha cx series! if you go with 770 and choose the o/c cpu-mobo combo better consider 650w a better option!

I tried to squeeze a 770 with 4gb in , but it exceeded your budget , so I got a 770 with 2gb only and a xfx 650w psu
