Hi,I'm about to build my own rig for gaming,and I'm not a pro in computer stuff.So please tell me whether my first build rig's parts match each other.My specs;
-Mainboard:GIGABYTE™ GA Z87-D3HP(or Asus Z87 Pro,or ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO)
-CPU: Intel Core™ i7-4770K
-RAM: Corsair VENGEANCE PRO 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 Bus 1600Mhz
-HDD: Western Caviar Green / Blue 1TB 7200Rpm, SATA3 6Gb/s, 64MB Cache
-SSD:p lextor M6S Series 256GB SATA3 6Gb/s 2.5"
-VGA:ASUS GTX780-DC2OC-3GD5 (384 bits)
-Case Corsair Carbide Series™ 500R
-Power supply:Zalman Goldrock 750W
-Asus 27" VX279H LED-1920x1080
As what I said above,I'm gonna build this one for gaming,But ,I also plan to do some slight overclocking in the future(just practice how to overclock).I've already done many researches by my own,I just want to reconfirm it.So,there are some questions I wanna ask you guys.
1/.This is the main question,about the Mainboard,I prefer buying that Gigabyte Z87-D3HP(cause it's cheap),but I also love the other two(and Perhaps I'd buy one of them instead).So,Does all those mainboards match my rig's specs(with the VGA,and so on..)???,
2/.is my rig overclockable?
3/.Can that computer's parts fit that Corsair 500R?

So,Tell me if you find any problem about the specs.Thanks in advance for sparing your time to answer my question.

Motherboard→ Asus Z87/Z97-A LGA 1150. A great choice for overclocking i7 4770k without paying a heavy premium. This motherboard& the one's you listed will be compatible with your system

Yes, your CPU is overclockable(K-version) and you'll need Z87/Z97 chipset motherboard to do so. Also you'll need aftermarket CPU cooler to overclock your CPU to keep optimum temperature.

The parts will fit in 500R easily.

I'll recommend this Power supply→XFX ProSeries 750W 80 PLUS Gold Certified
It is Seasonic made, Gold certified and Modular.

You should get something preferably from Tier 1 or Tier 2-A for your system.

One more thing, As you say you'r building a gaming rig, then stick with i5 4670k/4690k, games don't benefit from HyperThreading in i7 4770k, the main reason why it is costly than i5. Invest the saved money on better GPU→ GTX 780 Ti
