I plan to overclock, I plan to play games at ultra 60 fps or more on the latest games that will hopefully last me a good while & will allow upgrades in the future... sadly I suck at picking parts.

Soooo help ._. : http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Sleepyknight/saved/xXstt6

budget is $1500 wouldn't mind going lower & saving up though.

Switched motherboard to one that can overclock. Switched to a better video card. You don't need an Ethernet networking card there's a port on the motherboard. Also add an aftermarket cooler, the cooler master 212 evo is good and not expensive.

Some other optional things:

You probably don't need 16GB of ram
You might want a bigger SSD

How do you tell which one is better? For example, the video card he originally had was more expensive, but apparently not as good.

I wouldn't go with AMD for a GPU... Bad drivers and a pain int eh ass to deal with.

Also I changed a few things in your build

The 290 is more powerful than a 770 in most games by a reasonable margin. Also AMD drivers aren't as bad as people make them seem. I've have my 7970 for a year and haven't had problems even without updating since installing it. I've had more problems with the Nvidia drivers in my laptop

uh huh... I had my 6950 for 2 years and just reccently I found out the only drivers that work with my card are the ones from the manufacture's website. Ones from AMD's site has given me massive problems always. The drivers from the manufacturer are old and outdated but they work. I can't wait to get rid of this card... But I'm stuck with it for some time now. I will never go back to AMD.
