No build one yourself posts yet? Wow. Let me be the first then.

Build one yourself. Especially if you're thinking about modifying/upgrading a prebuilt.

If you're buying a desktop it's always better to build it yourself. Also the Lenovo is not a great computer for gaming. It has a way overkill CPU and RAM but a relatively average graphics card.

The 4770k is the CPU I would choose if I was building right now regardless of budget (providing the budget allowed for it without cutting corners elsewhere of course). It outperforms the 3930k/4930k in most games. The only two I can name off the top of my head where the 6 core processors come out ahead are BF4 and Crysis 3. Those two games run on 8 threads so 6 fast cores (plus hyperthreading) is obviously going to beat 4 slightly faster cores (again with hyperthreading). Most modern games, however, utilize 2-4 threads and virtually all older games only use 1 which puts the 4 slightly faster cores at an advantage.

If I should build one myself, what are the absolute BEST specs I should get? (Not on a budget).

Never mind. Just thought of a build myself, just need to know if it will be able to run brand new games and games coming in the next few years. Specs are:

Processor: Intel Core i5-4670k
Motherboard: MSI z87-G55
Memory: 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz low profile
GPU: ASUS Geforce GTX 660 DirectCU II (going to overclock probably once I figure out how to when I build this)
Case: Corsair Carbide series 200r
Boot Drive: Western Digital Black 500gb Hard Drive
Optical Drive: OEM DVD Drive
PSU: Antec EA-550 Platinum Efficient PSU
OS: Windows 8.1 Pro (64-bit)

If a part won't do the trick, please let me know what part and what I should replace it with.

That's an OK mid-range build. Suggest you get a better video card (think GTX 770 at a minimum) and consider an SSD in addition to the hard drive.

LOL. TC says he's not on a budget.

Next post TC proposes a build with a 660 in it.

Good times, PCH. Good times.
