You could probably get more performance if you switch your processor from a 4770k to a 4670k and spend the extra $100 on either a more powerful GPU, or an ssd.
That is because many games get around the same performance on an i5 and i7, so the $100 upgrade to an i7 could be better spent

To do
- go lower on CPU, maybe a i5-4670k or FX-8320
- get 2x4GB 1600MHz RAM
- Go lower on motherboard Asus' ROG series are really premium and usually the buyer doesn't use it to its full potential
- get a better SSD, like the Samsung 840 evo
- get a nicer case
- get a higher quality PSU from Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, or XFX

Here is what I would do parts wise:

-Mobo- MSI Z87 G43 ($149)- http://gear-up.me/motherboard/intel-socket-lga-1150/msi...
-CPU- i5-4670k ($260)- http://gear-up.me/processors/intel-core-i5/cpu-intel-co...
-RAM- CRUCIAL BALLISTIX SPORT 8GB (2X4GB) 1866MHZ ($96)- http://gear-up.me/memory/ddr3/ddr3-crucial-ballistix-sp...
-SSD- 120 GB Samsung Evo ($96)- http://gear-up.me/storage-devices/ssd-drive/ssd-2-5-quo...
-HDD- Seagate 1TB 7200RPM ($69)- http://gear-up.me/storage-devices/hard-drive-35-sata/hd...
-PSU- Seasonic M12II 620w PSU ($115)- http://gear-up.me/chassis-and-psu/power-supply-unit/sea...
-Case- Corsair 300R Windowed ($135)- http://gear-up.me/chassis-and-psu/chassis/pc-gaming-cas...

Total: $920

Left a bit of room if you wanted a different case (stick to Corsair, Coolermaster, Nzxt, Fractal Design for good air flow). Also if you plan to overclock your CPU you would want a CPU cooler (or even if your climate is hot it might help).

Decent cooler for some minor overclocking:
CPU Cooler- CM 212 EVO ($46)- http://gear-up.me/processors/cpu-coolers/coolermaster-h...

The i7 doesnt provide enough benefits for gaming over the i5 for its price increase. If you plan to do video rendering or editing then the i7 is useful + more ram.

Edit: I really like the fractal design r4 case (quiet, good cooling, simple and stylish IMO) but it is expensive for you (usually only 20-30 more than the corsair 300R in the US vs $80 more for you)

Thanks man, Am going for this build and am adding the CM 212 EVO cooler + Fractal design R4, I've been checking for a build for like a month so far and whenever i compare between prices here and prices on amazon or newegg, i found its way too expensive here but hopefully this build works well and i can play games smoothly :) 

Thanks very much.
