Hey all!

I'm about to build my next rig. Very exciting and looking forward to having a real build. I'm coming from an iMac so this will be a great experience for me.

I was hoping ya'll could give me your thoughts on the rig and build.

I chose the 770 because the 8 series is close enough and I don't do anything too intense that requires the 780 at the moment. When the 8 series arrives I'll end up upgrading to that and 1440p gaming.

I mostly live stream, game, web develop/design, 3D model & Render, and intensive photoshop work.

Look forward to the feedback! Thanks everyone.

The processor is also necessary for me to do my 3D modeling/rendering. Also for my UX/UI design tasks. I always go for the core i7 in most circumstances. So i think you are saying that it's a good CPU! :) 

Hmm, do you think it's worth getting a 780 with the 8 series somewhat around the corner? The games I play/stream are: WoW, SC2, Smite, HoTS Alpha, L4D2, D3 and WoW WoD Beta. If that helps.

Oh my bad ,even 600 series will handle those 770 will outrun them without dipping,when i said i was dissapointed i meant i got like 30fps on high in ac4 and 50 fps on hight-ultra in watch dogs(both with msaa 4x) plus i got i5 3350p which is waaaaaaaaaay lower than this i7 beast.

ah! I haven't tried any of those games yet. My motherboard comes with Watch Dogs so I may give that a shot. I have a feeling the 770 may struggle with it on certain settings. Not really a big deal though.

Everything else seems sound / will play well together?
