    Not sure why you picked the reference design GTX 770... Gigabyte, EVGA, MSI, and Asus all offer better cards for less money (unless you like the blower look/design for some reason).

    The Corsair 450D case is awesome and a slightly better performer than the 750D from my reading. The 450D looks sleek, has great dust filters and cable management, and has SSD mounts behind the motherboard.

    I would recommend a better quality PSU, 650 W minimum. Seasonic/XFX are the best.

    Thanks for the quick response! I don't know much about graphics cards, are there any that you like best and or recommend? Also I will look into getting a better power supply. Good Call on the corsair 450 D!
  4. I would go for the Gigabyte card for 309 after MIR and free watch dogs currently.

    It's the coolest and quietest and Gigabyte warranty is pretty good if you had any trouble.

    Anything on this list of PSUs will work:

    If you are patient you can get gold/platinum rated 650 W seasonics for around 80$

    Also, just FYI if a PSU is not "Haswell certified" it may now wake up from sleep/hibernate properly (and may result in a force reboot). The way around this is to disable "C" states in BIOS or going into power saving options in windows.
