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.

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!
