    this is more powerful and $660 less. I5 vs I7 makes practically no gaming diffrence, $100 cheaper. AS Rock overclocking board is just as good, and $60 less. Air cooling vs water cooling, saves $80 , $10 less for practically identical memory, 2 GTX 770s is $100 cheaper than your 780ti. Plenty adequate PSU, $160 cheaper. Cheap case $150 cheaper
  2. If you had more you could build this ;)!
