I am currently investing in a gaming computer and I am relatively new to the computer building process but have basic knowledge of it all. I will not be overclocking hence why I have not got a K CPU aswell.

I want to know if this will be a gaming computer that will last in the future and be able to run modern games on ultra/extreme setting. I would like to keep it at roughly the same price maybe $100 more that it currently is, but I accept all suggestions on making a solid gaming computer and what I can change to improve it!

This is the build I'm thinking of http://nz.pcpartpicker.com/p/6h8Wf7

Thank you all in advance.

i think you should get the 780 to play all games on "Ultra".

Better graphics card, cheaper SSD still good one.
Good power supply that can powr everything and its a high quality one.
Changed the ram to the 1866Mhz ram cause its the same price.
Changed the motherboard to a something cheaper and still good for overclocking if you decide to go to an overclocking chip later on.

An i5 4690 would be enough to play games, the i7 is not a huge improvement over the i5 in most games currently. And it would save you roughly 100$
