I know you said yes to overclocking but this is better than overclocking could give you for under $1200 unless you remove the ssd.

AMD Radeon said:
for PSU, XFX 550 is now cheap
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550sxxb...

i should have put this one in the list above
xfx 550 is the most popular psu for i5 OC + gtx 770 build

I just found this out, but one problem w/ ur build is that its $1330, anyway to make it cheaper? also would a getting a 760, 280x, or an 270x be better ?

1. It's not that much cheaper.
2. Better stock speed means nothing when comparing two different brands. AMD has single core performance compared to Intel.
3. Overclocking is over-rated. If you go with Intel you won't need to overclock.
