  1. The i5-4670k needs a LGA 1150 MB. Get a Z87-A instead of that Z77.

    Get 2x4GB RAM so you can run it in dual channel.
  2. I replaced those two. Is everything good with the build now? Or are there still problems.

    +1 the CPU and mobo incompatibilities will prevent this build from working. The choice of asus for your mobo is good but make sure it say Z87 instead of Z77. The ram part is not incompatible but you get better performance off 2x4gb of ram vs 1x8gb.

    A serious addition you should seriously consider is an aftermarket cooler. Your CPU is an overclocking model and you will get much better performance with a different cooler such as the cooler master hyper 212 evo if you don't want to spend a lot.

    Finally one more minor change would be to the psu. The CX series isn't doing so well although corsair is usually a good brand. Look for another one from seasonic, xfx, or just a different corsair model.
  4. 750w is pointless here...unless you know for a fact that PSU can handle GTX 770 SLI then you should consider 550/600w or 850w for leaving sli open as an option
  5. Yeah, still trouble. The NZXT Guardian 921 RB can fit cards up to 10" long, and the Asus GTX 770 is 10.7" long.
  6. Here's a case that can fit any graphics card and looks pretty much like your original pick:
    Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower

  7. PSU now... First decide if you'll ever want a second GTX 770.

    If you do, you need a motherboard that can run two PCI-E x16 slots at x8 (lots of Z87 boards can, including the Z87-A), and an 850W PSU.

    If you're OK with one GTX 770, get a TX650, it's enough and it's higher quality than the CX750.
