CPU : Intel Core i7 4770 3.4
GPU: Nvida GTX 770
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16gb DDR3 1600mhz
HDD: 1tb seagate HDD
PSU: Aerocool VP Pro 850 Watt Branded PSU

I would like to play games such as Arma 3, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Path of Exile, Arma 2, Dota 2. So not particularly demanding(Excluding Arma 3). However I want to be prepared for the future, and with next gen games coming out for console, this will also push PC games further. Opinions on this build please :)

Looks good, but I would recommend a different PSU (Antec, seasonic, XFX etc)

If your only doing gaming I would suggest sticking with 8gb's and as Game3r01 said, get a better PSU! and possibly a SSD!

I'm going to get a 60gb SSD just for windows and 1/2 games aswell. Yeah i thought i might need a new PSU haha.

If you can try for a 120 GB SSD 60 GB seems too small, I have a 120 GB one and I filled it up in no time, also with a SSD you need 10 GB's of free space usually to avoid problems, so keep that in mind.

You don't mention the mobo, think if primarily gaming would go 4670K and a Z87 mobo, also keep you happier longer, better brand of PSU and with your combo a 600 PSU with 42 AMPs on the 12 volt rail will be plenty with asome headroom, DRAMs good (8 will suffice for gaming for now) but DRAM prices will continue to rise so grabbing a 16GB set now will be better for the future ;)
