Making a new PC build it's my second go around, with my first one being a a great success but dead due to my nephew spilling his kool-aid all over the fanless top port of my PC. Hardly any parts were salvageable.
Anyway if I could get any recommendations on builds or advice in any builds

My budget is about 800-900$ but could stretch it to maybe $1000, I had a radeon 7870 but I think I would like to make the switch to an Nvidia card, have been looking at a 2GB GtX 770 from ASUS(I play alot of games where PhysX would be very cool to look at)

Well ventilated case is a must, kinda flashy wouldn't hurt either xD
SSD drives aren't exactly a priority for me as I would rather have a more powerful machine than faster load times, but any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for format problems in posting on my phone and am not exactly sure how to list this.

Using this PC for primarily gaming, I would like to be able to max out the latest games at 1080p while maintaining a steady 60fps if possible.

Ordering parts all in the US, probably from Newegg or Amazon.

I only need the OS and Tower Case

Primarily focused on my GPU performance I will over clock CPU if it bottlenecks my GPU, but mostly just looking for maximum graphical performance

I do not believe I am near a microcenter.

Only thing I really feel like I need in my build is a high performance graphics card Nvidia preferably.

I went with the K CPU in case you wanted to Overclock, you would need a better cooler Also if you don't plan on OC, you probably wont need the Z97 chipset. But its a good way to get more performance out of your computer and to "future proof" yourself a bit.. You can jump down and save another 40$ or so if you don't go with the K. Also you can save another 30$ or so on the case, Antec's are awesome IMO.
