Eh. 750ti will bottleneck the cpu. Thats a really nice cpu, i actually have its younger (and somewhat better) brother. 750ti's are good and all just not that good.

Good overall build for playing the games you mentioned.

Could be even better with a better GPU (R9 280 or GTX 760 or higher).

Tip: If you really want value for money, build your own custom build, will be much better. But I know you would've gave this a thought before deciding on getting it custom built from market. It looks to me more like a $1k rig, with that GPU.

I did a quick add up in my head and it comes to be $800- $900 to build yourself.

Do you have any chance of custom building one yourself?

Can you not get your local micro centre to do it? Or if you live in canada that'd help alot

Understandable. and yes performance would increase going to an R9 280.

Thanks for the help. Just from curiosity, what type of fps can I expect with this system?

An i7-4790K would be cheaper and suit your needs just as well.

Depends on game but i would say 60 minimum with everything maxed except AA

With the 280, expect 45+ FPS on Ultra. 55+ on high on FHD.
With 750 Ti, 35-40 FPS on Ultra, 50+ FPS on high on FHD.
^These are for latest titles.
For the games you play, GTX 750 Ti will give 50+ FPS on ultra and 75+ FPS on High, and add 10 FPS more for R9 280.

For gaming the gpu is more important. Swap the i7 for an i5 4670k and use the savings to get a gtx 760 instead of the 750ti.

Further if you have no trust in buildingit yourself and are not a computer guy, are you sure you want to overclock? Or the possible hassle of liquid cooling? If you are not overclocking, drop to a non k i5 4670 to save money 20$, swap the liquid cooling for a coolermaster hyper evo air cooler, and use th3 savings to upgrade the 760 to a 770.

If you are in canada check out NCIX.com . They let you customize a pc pretty well and will assemble it for you for a reasonable price. I did this for my first and current pc and it worked beautifully. I have since modified it somewhat though.
