First time building a pc for gaming budget 1000-1375 euro

Hi and thank you for clicking on my post.
I would love some advice and any suggestions that you might have about my choice of components for this build even though I have done many hours of researching (due to the fact i have always played on consoles so I don't have that much knowledge in this area ). Any suggestions on better parts would greatly be appreciated and any tips and tricks that you might have would be as well.

I am also looking for the best bang for my buck and am hoping that this system will last me as long as possible with the least amount of problems (having the most relabel and best quality parts)

Games I would like to play: To be able to play skyrim (modded), total war series (modded) witcher 3 and arma series (at 1080p maxed and 1440p high with good frame rate).

Note: Would like the ability to go sli or crossfire in the future.

Case: Fractal Design Define R5
Power supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 750W PC Power Supply - Gold
Mother board:MSI Z97 Gaming 5 Intel LGA1150 Z97 ATX Motherboard (1x DDR3, 6x USB3.0, 8x USB2.0, GBE, LAN, HDMI, DVI, VGA).
Cpu; Intel i5 4690k
Ram/memory: HyperX Savage 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 CL9 DIMM XMP Memory Module
Cooler:Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (120mm)
GPU: Not 100% sure but I have a budget of 300-400 euro.
Operating system: Windows 8

Also any tips one when to purchase parts or extra parts that i should purchase would also be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

  1. A GTX 970 would be a good GPU
  2. What manufacture would you recommend. Also should i buy it now or wait until amd 300s gpus are released to see if the price of the gtx 970 goes down like how when the the nivida 900 series came out the amd cards were all cut in price?
  3. Get the MSI version and wait till the amd cards come out and then see if the price has gone down
  4. So will go for msi gtx970 if its better then new amd gpu's in my price range . But also should I change any parts or are they all ok?
  5. For storage just get a western digital caviar blue hard drive with 1tb of space and get 2x4GB sticks of ram instead of one incase one fails you have a backup till it is replaced.
  6. will do that . S this build will be able to play all the games and also potentially sli 970s ? If thats all true then am I good to go order parts?
  7. Best answer
    This will essentially max out all current games at 1080P with the exception of GTA V and Witcher 3. Great build, BTW. And also, look into NZXT H440 if your budget fits, grab the black/red version for more awesome colors.
  8. Cheers thank you. Now hopefully all the parts will work when they arrive.
  9. Good luck!
  10. Thanks for help
