Hi all, I've been thinking about building a gaming pc for the first time, and was hoping to get some thoughts on this build. I'll be on a budget of up to roughly $1300, on a 1080p TV for a display, and was considering the following: (PCPartPicker list) CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($199.99 @ Microcenter) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($29.99 @ Newegg) Motherboard: MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($189.99 @ Newegg) Memory: Crucial Ballistix 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($75.99 @ NCIX US) Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($65.99 @ NCIX US) Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card ($405.91 @ Newegg) Case: Rosewill THOR V2 ATX Full Tower Case ($108.34 @ Amazon) Power Supply: SeaSonic M12II 650W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($95.98 @ Newegg) Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($14.98 @ Outlet PC) Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit) ($89.94 @ Outlet PC) Total: $1277.10 I probably won't be purchasing much of it for a month or two, so I realize things may change, but I thought I'd try to get as much figured out now as I can. The biggest questions I have are about the CPU, motherboard, RAM, and HDD: Is it worth the extra cost to get an i5-4670K over the i5-3570K? The reviews I've seen haven't shown much (if any) gaming improvement. I may be overclocking later on if that affects the choice. There is a newegg combo on the CPU and motherboard now that nullifies most of the extra cost, part of why I was considering it. Not sure what is important to look for in motherboards in general, though this MSI board reviews well, from what I've seen. Aside from 1333/1600/whatever else for speed, I'm not sure what to look for in RAM, either. Same problem with HDDs, I'm just not sure what's important aside from space. (1TB is about all I'll need for that, at least for a while). Same problem (again) for PSUs. The biggest sources I've been using are the PC buying guide here, and http://www.logicalincrements.com/, along with random reviews of specific parts. As for the games I'll be playing, most new stuff, Total War, Civ V, Elder Scrolls, The Witcher 2, DX:HR, etc. Hoping to play them at 1080p, 60fps, ultra settings (though I know that may not be possible with this build). Does this seem like a good build? Thanks in advance.
