400-500 Gaming PC Build 2014

Hey, looking for a gaming pc to compete with next gen consoles. Looking to play Elder scrolls online on ultra right now, but eventually may do some more upgrades (if needed) for other games like titanfall and BF4 and things. Honestly would like to see a nvidia GTX so I can get the nvidia shield eventually too but other cards work if you think theyre better choices. Going over budget just a bit is fine too

    Slightly over budget but it was the best I could do. If you need it a little cheaper you can save $30 by getting a HD 7770 instead of a 7790.
  2. Do you need an OS?
  3. Yes. It is going to be a first build. I'm starting from scratch
