Planned to build a "beast" gaming pc

Before buying the parts, I need to make sure that it's future-proof, handle games at Ultra settings (such as BF4, DayZ, etc) with high FPS and doesn't overheats a lot.

Problem is the budget is $1600. I'm almost at the limit, I need your suggestion and ideas for a "beast" gaming pc. (I prefer the i5-4670k)

Here's the parts...

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670k ($244) (keep)

MoBo: MSI Z87-G45 ($178)

RAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro Series 8GB (2x4) 1600 MHz ($112)

HardDive: WD Caviar Blue 1TB ($68)

CPUcooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212X ($43)

GraphicCard: MSI GTX 780Ti 3GB ($839) (GTX only)

PowerSupply: Corsair CS550M ($108)

OpticalDrive: n/a

Case: n/a

Thank you for the answers XD

  1. Best answer
    Get cheaper ram (gskill ram is plenty good) I.e. :

    use the money to get a better PSU as 550w is a little low especially if you plan to OC your rig ever, which it seems like you might with your choice in mobo. The rest of the build is good though


    Also all of those prices seem a little high for US.
