First of all thanks for the help. I'm pretty excited, as I've never built my own PC before. I need help picking out the best possible parts for my PC. It should be noted that its entirely about gaming here. I want to run all the latest video games on ULTRA settings.

Things I already have for my PC build:
-Monitor
-Mouse & Keyboard
-The OS

Specifications:
-an HDMI compatible motherboard.

Also, I currently live in Dallas, Texas if that matters.

Best solution

Edit: You will be able to upgrade to the new Broadwell processors when they come out since you have a Z97 motherboard.
