I'm looking to build a new gaming PC: Here's what I have at the moment:

Do people think that's a good setup? Can anone offer any suggestions for getting a bit more performance out of the same money?

Don't know why PCPartPicker shows higher price but 4670k and Z87 motherboard are better for the money also don't get that 16GB RAM it's totally not worth the money unless you run some RAM intensive programs :)
