Facepalm (sorry, don't mean this in a harsh way).

Haswell ONLY adds on-chip VRM (which still needs its own motherboard input VRM) and beefier on-board graphics. Both of these are useless to system builders.

As well, the 700 series is literally the 600 series (except for the 780, but that's basically an underpowered Titan). The 770 will be the 680, the 760ti the 670, and so on.
The ONLY advantage I can think of is that it'll lower 600 series prices (but people will still be stupid and buy a 770 instead of a 680) and the coolers on the stock 700 series will be slightly better. If you weren't planning to do a full WC loop (and on your budget I wouldn't) you'd have gone with a better GFX cooler (such as the Sig2). Even if you do go with the stock cooler (which wouldn't be a big deal at all, your temps would probably be fine either way), the 760ti stock probably won't be that much better than the 670 stock.

In summary, there is NO need to wait for Haswell. I could MAYBE understand waiting for the 700 series, but it really isn't that necessary.

Pushing all of that aside, assuming you will wait for Haswell and the 700 series (fair enough), your current setup still won't work; Haswell is on the 1150 socket and you'll have to change your MB when an 1150 comes out.
Also, just my 2cents.gif here, but if you're only buying one GFX card, you could probably go with a smaller, cheaper MB, like Micro-ATX or even M-ITX (if you're planning to add a second card in the future, M-ATX is still fine with two slots). Then again, you're gonna have to wait for Haswell compatible motherboards to come out anyway so you might as well wait and see what your options are in a month.

Also, 1866mhz memory isn't really necessary.

Oh, just realized you're planning to SLI later. In that case (no pun intended) go with some M-ATX Haswell board and the Corsair 350D. Awesome case. Or one of Fractal's several M-ATX cases. Or the TJ08-E.
If the PSU has the right connectors for two 770s (so probably 2 6pin 2 8pin), 750w will be plenty.
This entire build is sort of heavily based on assumption, though, because you don't have any idea what changes Nvidia will make to the 680 when they market it as the 770 and you don't know what motherboards will be available the months following the Haswell release. Basically you're doing a lot of waiting and planning is a little futile.

It's gonna affect chip prices; the market will probably become flooded with used ivy bridge chips, and you will be able to get a used one for cheap.

True, but the OP said he was planning to buy a Haswell chip (and a 770 as opposed to a 680) anyway. So this (while it is obvious, and also applies to the 600 series when the 700 series comes out, as I stated) won't help him.

Okay people, so I'll forget about Haswell since I'll be able to grab a i7 3770K for around 90$ tonight, and a brand new one at that.
I'll save on the board as well since I'm staying on 1155 and not moving to 1150. Yay !

Jesus, that's a good deal. Your build looks good, from what I remember of it. tongue.gif 21 pages is a bit much to try to remember what you were buying.

as a phantom owner its a great case, but its biggest downfall is ... DUSTY! otherwise coolign wise its a great case. you might want to consider the phantom 630 which i heard was a lot better(might be upgrading to it) its great on cables too! good luck with your first build. also i would not recommend you get the H80i but rather build your own custom loop or go for the swiftech h220 (will alow for better o/cs thus making it a bit more 'future proof')

That's badass.
In that case, I'd go with an Extreme4-M or a Maximus V Gene. Depending on what your color scheme is.
There's also a couple MSI and Gigabyte z77 M-ATX boards, so whatever you prefer. I just recommend the aforementioned two.

Since there's no spacing between two two-slot cards in M-ATX boards, definitely go with a stock blower style cooler (two dual fan style coolers stacked wouldn't work so well). If you're still after a 670, get a 670 FTW (for the 680 pcb) 2GB. You can always SLI with a 4GB model in the future for best future-proofing (higher resolutions are going to become more popular, and if you use this for media you might find yourself with a 4k TV when they become substantially cheaper in the near future).
Definitely no need to spend a ton for a custom water loop; you might as well keep the H80i and stay stock air on the GFX.

Your PSU, drive, and RAM are all fine (I still prob wouldn't spend the extra cash on 1866 over 1600, but).
If you go with the TJ08-E or the SG09/SG10 for example, you'd need a shorter PSU (like this)
The 350D, Arc Mini, Core 1000, and Define Mini are all awesome M-ATX cases as well. You could keep the Hale90 and use an H100i instead of an H80i too, if you wanted.

Personally, because you don't have any drives besides the one SSD, I'd buy the SG09 or SG10. Unless you were planning to buy some storage drives in the future.

Sorry for responding before you responded to me, haha.

I own a phantom, and I hate it for many reasons. This was discussed a while back, and he's not going fro one, IIRC.

Also, the price difference between building your own custom loop and getting an H80i is pretty large. The only thing that'll perform better for the same price would be a tower air cooler, but there are plenty of reasons not to get one of those.
