Any input is appreciated. Main use will be gaming, web browsing and some light video editing. don't know if I'll overclock but the 4670k is only $10 more than the 4670. Looking to buy in the next week. Also looking for recomendations on keyboard, monitor, mouse and anything else you guys think I'll need to complete the build. Thanks!

I would look at finding a nicer PSU, corsair has some good ones. The RM series is silent and great. Overall good build!

Get a XFX PSU. It's made by SeaSonic (best in business), unlike Corsairs.

That power supply is actually a pretty good power supply and everything else looks good too.

It is a good build all compatible the PSU is great no need for change. However I'm guessing since you won't be OCing very heavily you got the hyper 212 but that mobo is meant for heavy OC I suggest getting a 1600 MHz ram freq, I suggest taking out the SSD since 10 % of 60 gb will be taken and you gotta leave at least 25 % free space for it to operate fast, that way you'll have only 39 gb of SSD left. Also cutting down on the cabinet a bit that way you could fit a GTX 780 into it.

Here you go:

i think that 64gb ssd could be invest into getting a better gpu like amd r9 290 which is better than 770. that 64gb only enough for 1 or 2 games and it only just reduce loading time and nothing else or if with os installed, the boot up speed might reduce to some where around 10s. that i think is not important in gaming. 1600mhz ram is enough and also get a silver rated psu which is better to prevent your rig from not getting enough power

I say ditch the SSD and get a 1TB hybrid drive. That will make your experience with the computer a much more pleasant one. The GTX 770 is a good graphics card and can max out most games at 1080p. The 290, 290x, GTX 780, 780 ti, titan, and titan black are built for higher resolutions. You might keep an r9 290 a bit longer than a GTX 770 but by the time you actually need to upgrade from the 770 there will be cheaper cards with more than twice the power of an r9 290.

I just got a Core i7-4770 pc with a MSI GTX 770 myself.
I'm now running BF4 at 1920x1080 Ultra settings no AA with around 55-60 fps average, and 43 fps min.
Hope this helps!

A hybrid drive or SSHD works only with windows 7, pro, ulti, home or vista or Xp. It does not work with windows 8 or 8.1 rather it acts as a normal HDD.

Lots of great input. So do you guys not recommend running a HDD and an SSD? I figure for $100 total it's worth it to run both the 64gb SSD and a 1tb HDD. Thanks for all your help!

If you CAN save up some money for at least a 120 gb SSD 250 gb most preferable then don't put in a SSD just go for the hard drive if cannot save money for SSD I suggest going with a 2-3 TB HDD. If you are going to be using windows 7 over win 8 go for a hybrid drive (SSHD).
