i am currently looking at the geforce 770 but i am not sure if i should get the 780. i am on a 2000$ budget. i heard that the 780 has a mini hdmi port. witch one will give me the most fps in minecraft. i will be playing other games besides minecraft like tomb raider forza etc. also should i get a cpu cooler. i am not looking to overclock.

thanks for the help :)

lol minecraft. minecraft will get 200fps with an intel i5 built in hd4600 graphics... it doesnt really care much about your gpu unless you start installing a bunch of mods. $2000 is a huge budget for a computer and you could easily put together a gaming beast with a high end intel processor and a 780ti for less.

also why do you have an unlocked processor and a decent water cooler if your not going to overclock?

If you can afford it yes. Since your monitor is 144hz you need a gtx 780 to get ultra at those fps.

mini hdmi won't matter, dvi or display port are the only ones you can use to get 144hz refresh rate. And gtx 780 will give more fps in minecraft.

Yes still get a cpu cooler, because the stock ones still keep the CPUs hot even at stock speeds.

A few other recommendations:

Personal preference, get the vengeance pro memory, it has a better heatsink.

Your PSU isn't that great, I'd get a seasonic psu or a Corsair HX series psu instead.

minecraft doesnot requires much system requirements 1 gb ram and a entry level gpu is enough just you need high internet speed for other games gtx 780 is oviously better than the gtx 770 it is a tier above the gtx 770...the stock cooler is fine if u are not going to oc...

what are you going to use this computer for? you really dont need an i7 unless your going to be doing some heavy intensive computing apps.

also with your keyboard and mouse... i dunno why you would pay over $100 for a wireless mouse. you really should get a wired mouse for gaming. also you should be looking at entry level mechanical keyboards. i honestly think you should go somewhere and try out keyboards and mouses before you buy the. go to bestbuy and buy a few and try them out and return them. see if you like mechanical or not. same with a mouse, try them out. i would recommend some buts its very subjective and personal. many like the cooler master quickfire storms with either cherry mx blue or brown. cherry mx switches are very personal too. the razor deathadder mouse is like $60 bucks.

otherwise we could help you get some better parts in your build and get rid of some unnecessary parts.

also you should overclock since there really is no reason not it. its very safe with good cooling.
