First build, looking for recommendations or suggestions please

CPU I7 4770k
Cooler Noctua nh-d14
Mobo Gigabyte ga-z87-d3hp
Memory Crucial ballistix 2x8gb ddr3 1600
Hdd Scan disk ultra plus ssd 128gb. For o/s
Scan disk ultra plus ssd 256gb. For games and programs
Seagate barracuda 3tb 7200rpm for music, movies, pictures, everything else
Video card Gigabyte GeForce gtx 780 3gb. Not ti
Case Corsair 200r
Psu Corsair rm1000 80 gold. To power all future upgrades


I am just looking to see if anybody has had great or bad luck with any of these components or would have any recommendations on what I should swap with. This is my first build, money is not a huge issue. My friends have convinced me to sell my consoles and go for pc and I figured what better way to get into it than to build my own. Thanks for any help I get.

  1. My former Network tech teacher has a pc build store he HATES Crucial, not reliable his opinion. seems like you have some money to spend would guess $1500+
  2. I am spending a good bit on this, but I am hoping that I would not have to upgrade anything for the next few years with the setup I have. I want to be able to play most games on max setting or near max and not have it slow down or lag on me. I play skyrim, arma, flight simulators. Wife is obsessed with sims games, and they usually take a lot to play.

    Don't really need 1000w. If you not having a second graphic card in the next year or so, no point of that power supply. Go for a 650W power supply.
    For gaming i7 is nice to have but not needed. i5 4670k is enough.
