3d rendering + mid - high gaming build (first build)

hi everyone, im looking for help in deciding what components to choose for my build. i have been looking into it but im still unsure

i definitely want the i7 4770k and a gtx 770. for the mobo i was considering the MSI Z87 (other options welcome).
i have a total budget of £700-£800. excluding the OS and monitor.
The main use will be for 3D rendering with solidworks, rhino etc and photoshop but also for higher lvl gaming.

thankyou to any responses in advance :)

    That's going to be tough seeing as the i7-4770k goes for £227.99 and the GTX 770 for £228.92. Unless you can get those two components for a lot cheaper, you'll be left with £343.09 to get your motherboard, RAM, hard drive, CPU cooler, power supply and case.

    Any chance you can go a little lower in spec on the CPU and GPU?
  2. id like to stick with the 4770k. i could go lower in the gpu
    im open to any suggestions

    Well, it's not ideal for professional editing, but it is definitely geared towards serious gaming:

  4. thankyou that looks great :)
    just wondering is there a gpu dedicated more to 3D design that still allows for gaming that i could use ?
  5. If you can get a R9 280x for less than the GTx 770 you'll be better off with it. The GTX 770 is not so great in compute oriented tasks . Unless you plan on using CUDA there's not much benefit to going with a GTX 770 outside of gaming .
  6. okay thankyou Anthony, i appreciate the help :)

    The R9 280x also has better price to performance.
