Ok first off this is my first pc and I need help. My motherboard is a Msi z97 ATX full, icore 5 4670k haswell processor, and my ram will be 16GB(8x2) corsair vengeance but I need to know what mhz I should get.
I also need help with what ATX tower case I should get as well as cooling systems. I need to know what power supply would work as well. I plan on getting the 5th gen 14nm devils canyon or haswell refresh when they come out. And does this system need overclocking for gaming ? I plan on running games like bf4, skyrim, elder scrolls online on ultra. Graphics card ideas ? And HDD as well

I would go with the Corsair Obsidian 750D or the Corsair Graphite 600T (I LOVE CORSAIR)....I would go with the Crucial Ballistix tactical L.P 1866MHZ ....and with a Antec High Current Gamer 750w....if you need a GPU i would go with a gtx770...and cooling you can go with a custom cooling loop if so choose the Corsair Obsidian 750D.AWESOME watercooling support or i would go with the Corsair H110 Closed Loop

Since you're looking at high-end parts, I would get better than a 770 if you can afford it. For $75 more, you can get an R9 290 which has similar performance to a GTX 780, and gets you more VRAM for future-proofing.

For the power supply I would grab an 850-1000w for ability to Crossfire a pair of 290s in the future.
