Try to get the new H97 series mobo's, then you don't have to upgrade ur mobo too when ur'e changing ur CPU.
Also try to get THE GTX 770.

No. This is not a well balanced build at all. You need to spend about $100-150 less on cpu power and $100-150 more on gpu power.


I also would not get two 120GB ssds. I would get one 120GB ssd, and one 1TB or 2TB hard drive.

If you want to run everything on ultra, you should look more into the r9 290 or 290x or GTX 780 graphics cards.

You don't need 2 SSDs, just one to serve as the boot drive is all you need.

With the motherboard, maybe consider getting the ASRock fatal1ty z97 killer maybe.

With the PSU, consider going with another brand maybe and unless you plan on running an SLI/CrossFire set up in the future, you don't need 750w. An xfx 550w bronze is sufficient.

I mean for the same overall price, you could get an i5 and a much more powerful video card.

Here's an example of what I mean.

This is what you wanted to do-

PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/TmvTP6
Price breakdown by merchant: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/TmvTP6/by_merchant/
Benchmarks: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/TmvTP6/benchmarks/

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($324.98 @ SuperBiiz)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($34.98 @ SuperBiiz)
Motherboard: Asus Z87-Plus ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($158.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Asus Radeon R9 280X 3GB DirectCU II Video Card ($299.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $812.96



and this is what I recommend instead-

Price breakdown by merchant: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/LFMRzy/by_merchant/
Benchmarks: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/LFMRzy/benchmarks/

CPU: Intel Core i5-4690 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($214.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: Asus H97-PLUS ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($108.99 @ Mac Mall)
Video Card: XFX Radeon R9 290X 4GB Double Dissipation Video Card ($479.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $803.97



They are roughly the same price, but the second one is WAY better for gaming. It's not even close.
