I am planning on building a gaming PC with an Intel Core i5-4670K processor ($222.00) and either a Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 2GB ($224.99) or GTX 770 2GB ($319.99). Can you please recommend a PC build under $900 or even $800 if possible? I also have no plan of overclocking at the present time but may do so in the future.

If you insist on getting the 4670k and having the ability to overclock you will not be able to afford the GTX770. This would be much better.

Another take, had to sacrifice SSD in order to get overclockability.

I'd go with the first one due to the SSD.

The ssd will make more of an impact than overclocking will.

I agree, I'd also go with an FX 8320 due the budget constraint but OP wanted an i5.
