My budget for the entire operation was set at 1600, I can't spend more than that and if it comes up a little less that'd be great. I'm not saying you guys have to skimp on anything though. One drawback is that all parts have to be through tigerdirect, which limits some available parts, such as as any g.skill ram. I am already pretty sure about the Intel core i5-4670k for the processor; as I won't be doing much video editing or likes I won't be needing the i7-4770k. I'm fairly certain I'll also being going for the PNY Geforce GTX 770 4gb as my gpu, as it seems like a very good graphics card for the price. However, if you guys have better options within the same budget I will look into them. I will need everything else except for a mouse, including a wireless networking card, an operating system, and a keyboard. I would appreciate if you guys would respond as soon as possible, as this build will be occuring in the next week.

Update: I think I'm probably going to go with the MSI AMD Radeon R9 280X 6GB for my graphics unless there is any logical objections.

i would be jealous if you got the msi gaming 3 but the gigabyte gaming 3 is a great mobo too.


Thanks for responding quickly, even if it isn't a full answer I will definately put that in the possible parts list!

I can upgrade when necassary, but thank you for the information. However, I can't hold out for this.
