Any changes could be made or is this good? This will be the first PC I build. Trying to keep it under $1500.

Get a 770 from Asus, EVGA, Gigabyte or Msi.

By the way, what's wrong with the PNY 770? I'm new to this so please excuse my lack of knowledge here.

How's this?:

Put some cheaper stuff in (without sacrificing quality, IMO) so I could upgrade the video card.

Nice.... TC, you basically get what you pay for. Yeah the PNY vs. EVGA 770 was like 10 bucks cheaper, however, EVGA is a more reputable brand than PNY.

Thanks for the response. Given the fact I will be gaming at a max res of 1080p, could I take full advantage of the GPU to warrant the much higher price? Are there any cheaper, similar alternatives? $500 for a GPU is a little more than I'd like to spend.

I will probably replace the case, PSU and mouse though. Thanks for those cheaper alternatives.

The 780 is great for 1080p gaming. It's already used to its fullest potential in a lot of recent GPU-heavy games, and it'll obviously stay that way as newer games come out. And the 3GB VRAM can be used up at 1080p. Some recent games already use right at 2 GB or a little over at 1080p. Also, I've modded Skyrim and it easily hit up to 2.8 GB and hovered around 2 GB often.

Alright thanks. If it's worth it I'll get it. Again that's a little more than I'd like to spend, but whatever. I've got the money.

Thank you for the help. Can't wait to get everything set up!
