This is what i decided to go for. Its within budget but if any cuts can be made without big performance sacrifices please advise. there are always a lot of money that can be well spent on peripherals like a gaming mouse, keyboard and headset.

Also i want to know your opinion on this build in general.

Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K

Motherboard: ASUS GRYPHON Z87 DDR3 1600

RAM: Kingston HyperX Beast 16 GB Kit (2x8 GB) 1600MHz CL9

Graphics Card: ASUS Graphics Card GTX780TI

Hard Drive: Kingston HyperX 3K 240 GB SSD

Case: Corsair Graphite Series 230T Orange

Power Supply: Corsair CX750 ATX 80 PLUS Bronze

Monitor: Viewsonic 1080p 2ms

1. You don't need an i7-4770K for gaming. A high-end i5 is just as good and saves you about $100.
2. A high-end expensive (but very good) small micro ATX motherboard in a mid-ATX tower. Seems a bit mismatched there. Not that it won't work, just a bit odd.
3. Obviously a very expensive graphics card. Do you really need it?
4. PSU is underwhelming. The Corsair CX line is a low-end PSU. If you're going with top high-end components, I would suggest a high end PSU from SeaSonic or XFX.
5. Expensive 24" monitor. What's special about that monitor?

do you think i should use the z87-a instead? i just dont get why its more expensive than other options out there..
will this be a better alternative for that psu?
what good monitors can you suggest?
as for the graphics card i'm just trying to future proof my system.. games always need more gpu power no matter what and i hate upgrading..
thanks for the help!

If your talking about Asus Z87-a then it fine.
I would get 8gb of ram 16gb isn't needed for gaming.
For the monitor i like this one

780ti is alittle overkill for 1080p I goes with the R9 290 great performace for the price and can compete with 780.

Asus VS247P is a great monitor, stand is a little wobbly, if you don't shake your desk they'll be fine.
Stick with the 780TI, nVidia seems to on top of their shi* when it comes to GPU's.
