I would drop the i7 to an i5 for sure. No real difference in games and a BIG savings in money.

Use the saved money to get a gtx770 not a gtx760. This will greatly improve gaming performance.

Get 8gb RAM, not 16gb.

You probably want a new PSU, that one is very low quality and 600w is a lie. Replace it ASAP.

You want to stick with Antec, XFX, Seasonic.

Changing to an i5 will not affect gaming at all. The saved money to take the GPU up to a gtx770 will make a large difference in performance.

Ok so I will buy a new PSU and get a 8gb ram. What i5 processor would you recommend me?

DO you plan to overclock or not? If yes: i5 4690k and a z97 motherboard. If not: any 1150 i5 non-K CPU and an h97 board.

I took all your advice and I just had enough money for the GTX 770, I thought there really wasnt a difference between the GTX 770 and the 760 but many other forums said that there is a huge difference and it would be better to get the 770. So thanks.

There is a pretty big difference between the 770 and 760.

Always glad to help!

Make sure you have a z97 board and a good CPU cooler so you can overclock.
