Also, bare in mind I have no idea how to overclock GPUs so, yeah.

If I get a 770 will I be running things on max settings for like the next 10 years?


No, like all GPUs they will slowly stop running games on Ultra. But, if you're fine with a mix of med/high it'll get you through many years.

Comments now? I'm planning on sticking with the evga/PSU.

You are bottlenecking your cpu big time with that gpu. That GPU was released almost 4 years ago and is really overpriced. Unless you already own the gpu and don't wanna buy another just yet I would say spend that 300 on a gtx 770. You will get a hell of a lot better performance out of it.

Yeah, I know it'll be limited by my 560 ti, but I bought that a few years ago for Skyrim, and I can wait a few more years for the 770/780s to go down.

Thanks for the suggestions, right now I'm at http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3EwPc
The 1TBHDD seems to be around the same price, I did switch to the gigabyte motherboard though, as well as to an enermax case that gets more use out of the front panel USB ports. I really don't think I'll need more than 128 gigs on the SSD, and the read speed is only a difference of .20MBps on the 256 gig one.

Anyone have any comments on my case, or how well the 4770k processor will work with the gigabyte motherboard?

your case...well i can't comment on it. just make sure it has good cooling and noise. the cpu will work on that mobo, but why the 4770K over the 4670K? Do the extra features justify the extra $100 for you?

Well, it's slightly faster, has the hyperthreading (Admittedly not entirely sure how much that effects performance), and comes with a fan, so overall it's probably only $50 more because of the fan.

That's what I'm curious about, I know the coolermaster had some good ventilation, but I'm not sure about the enermax.

That has to be the worst looking $1200 build I've ever seen.

edit: Oh, I see you already own the 560Ti ...
