You are spending WAY too much on the cpu and not enough for the graphics card. 1000W is also way to much and you would only need about 750W-850W. You will also want 8GB of RAM in dual channel and should run at 1600 or higher.

All you need is a wireless pci-e card like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... But i advise against gaming over wifi.... those latencies are annoying in FPS games.

the 2011 cpu wont work on 1150mb yu need a 2011 pin mb. myself I see if yu can swing the newer haswell-e set up or wait for the newer intel cpu in jan. use black friday and cyber monday to pick up most of your newer parts. by the fall hopefully nvidia and amd newer gpu will have dropped.

I want to run dual graphics cards in the near future though. But anyways, what would you recommend for my cpu and gpu?

So many things wrong here:
Too much CPU
Too much and crappy PSU
Too small SSD

Hello, I made a simple build for you, feel free to customize things like the case, or colored ram, etc.
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/NZ4gQ7

The 4670k is good for gaming, and easily you may OC or get a bit of a cheaper non "k" part. For 1080p gaming the 770 is great, but if you spot a r9 280 for less than the cost of the 770 jump on it, because it's better.

if your ging to buy now I get an asus-a mb or higher mb. then the 4670k replacment (devil canon cpu do to it having better tim paste). 120g ssd 8g of 1866/2133 ram. a 2tb hard drive and a r300 window case from cosair. the posted power supply and video card you had. if you can wait till the fall to start buying i would get a nvidia maxwell 800 cpu that going to replace the 700 line. and newer 1151 intel cpu and mb. the newer mb and cpu will let you drop in one more newer cpu. if not buy the z97 and brodwell cpu.

An SSD is a Solid Stae Drive. Like a regular hard drive, but no moving parts. Much more expensive per GB, and way way faster for some things, but they work very, very well.
Do you need one? No, not really. Personally I'd not build a new PC without one, but it is not critical.

Okay, thanks. I think i will leave it out for the time being and also buy that in the near future. I dont want to spend that much for 125GB of space.

You don't need a wired network adapter, your motherboard already provides it. Only 50$+ sound cards are really worth it and on a budget build, you shouldn't need one.

Also, you should get a pcie wifi adapter and not a usb one. A wired connection will always be better than wireless

What do you mean wired network adapter and does my motherboard support sound or do i have to buy that separately also? Can you just make your recommended changes and link me to it?
