    Hello, there!
    If you want future proof build go with 4770k and Asus z97 mobo, OCable one (imo Maximus VII Hero is great choice). Also get better cpu cooler (not that this one is bad, just spend few more dollars for good one) so u can overclock and still get below 55-60 degrees (at stress) -- I see u prefer air so, go with Noctua nh-d14 or nh-d15.. SO get 4770k + Hero VII mobo + Noctua Cpu cooler and U will still be under 1300$, to max it u can get faster ram (2133mhz) and maybe 16gb

    its ok, just add 2 more fans to replace the 2 on your cpu cooler, get noctua (15$ each) - they are more silent and with better temp performance , otherwise this cpu cooler is one of the best atm. Just remember when u overclock your cpu keep it under 70c (not that 80 will kill it, just under 70 got better lifespan)
