gskill 1866 speed ram, 8gb at least with the best/lowest timings you can find

change the cpu cooler to an all in on water cooler if you can, corsair h100i/h110 would be a good choice

I personally would save a few bucks and go for the 4670k instead.

I read countless reviews that the noctua DH- N14 is an awesome piece of kit, noone had anything bad to say about on reviews or comments were purchased. I read in a couple of places that if i wantex the same performance from liquid cooling it would have to be custom made and waaay more expensive.

And sadly i got it already so thats what ill be using to cool my CPU

The ram you picked is 2400CL11, 16 gigs for $180. GSkill Ripjaws X 2133CL9, 16 gigs for $130, will have same or better performance. There is practically no benefit to getting faster ram then 2133 on Haswell, because it will not get utilized. Lower CAS latency is King on high end memory.

But realistically some 1866CL9, 16 gigs for $120, ram will be less then 1% slower on benchmarks and FPS then 2400CL11.

btw: they do make 2400CL9 ram...but are you willing to spend $350 for 16 gigs?

What about a GTX 690? I read they are better than the Titan however, they are 2GB less and round about the same price, its so confusing frown.gif

Yes the GTX 690 is better. faster clock, more shaders, more texture units, more rasters. Only thing that the Titan has on the 690 is the Bus Width and OpenGL 4.3 (690 supports 4.2). That said, the 690 still performs better then Titan with a 256 bit bus (titan has 384 bit), and I haven't played a game in years that used OpenGL....lol

The GTX 690 is a beast...expensive beast. Overkill for your system, unless you plan on using eyeFinity.

Here's a comparision between the two: http://www.hwcompare.com/13959/geforce-gtx-titan-vs-geforce-gtx-690/

Well, they were wrong. H100 / H100i perform similarly to the Noctua at around the same price point.

However, the Noctua is still a fine choice. It just takes up a lot of space. Nothing wrong with that.
The only thing you have to be aware of is if your case is big enough, and if you're blocking any ram slots. It's big.

As someone else has stated, the 690 does give better performance.

The Titan is the same price because it is still the best SINGLE GPU.

The GTX 690 has two GPU's on one card. It does beat out the Titan, but it is a dual card--which can have its disadvantages.

Also, yes the Titan has more memory, but for gaming on one or two monitors, that's not currently an issue.

A 690 would be fine--but I would still go for just a 780 if I were you. Unless you have cash to throw around.
Price for performance on a 780 is just crazy.

Just one last question regarding the GPU, what about the 7970 could I consider that on par with the others?

This graphics card thing has been a headache, I was pretty sure what I wanted for the rest of the setup but the Graphics card is like the bane of my life. So should I consider the 7970 too? or stick wtih Nvidia?

7970 is a good card with good bang for the buck...

But it's not quite on par with 690's, 780's, or Titans.

No the EVGA SuperNova NEX750B or NEX750G are not worth buying they are mediocre units sold at massive overprice

And its 550 watts for a single video card and 750 watts for two
