You could also go with one of the gigantic 200w 9xxx series AMDs. They have very high stock clocks.

Here's your build in a non overclockable format. Same performance $200 less money

This looks great since you do not want to OC. And you could even spend more money on the GPU to fill out your budget, or, youve saved some money and that is never bad.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230 V3 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor ($243.08 @ SuperBiiz)
This CPU is typically a better value for this sort of rig, because it offers i7 class performance, but with no iGPU, no overclocking, and slightly lower clocks. All down close to an i5 price tag.

Motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($124.99 @ Newegg)
Good looks and more importantly, SLI support. Z87 becomes a requirement to do SLI, even with no plans to overclock, as I'm not aware of any SLI supporting boards that aren't based on the Z87 chipset. No big deal though.

Memory: Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($86.99 @ Newegg)
There are lots of options here that will work fine. I would suggest sticking with a 2x4GB 1600 speed kit rated 1.5V or less though. If you don't want to overclock this machine this will simplify setup. This kit struck my eye as having some stupidly cool looking uber-tall black heat-sinks (entirely unnecessary but fun!) and tight timings. Might look pretty snazzy on that motherboard. If you think you might want to use an aftermarket CPU cooler (not required but option to reduce noise), then a standard height kit is advised.

Storage: Crucial M500 240GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($147.98 @ SuperBiiz)
240GB SSD for a nice collection of games to fit on.

Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.99 @ Amazon)
Mechy for overflow and backup and media.

Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 4GB Video Card ($370.98 @ Newegg)
If you're planning on a multiple GPU upgrade in the future, then you will want to avoid the 2GB versions of the GTX760 and 770, as the VRAM size is the only thing that will not scale in multiple GPU configurations. A pair of GTX770's in SLI would find themselves somewhat self defeating with only 2GB frame buffers, as they wouldn't be able to store texture sizes large enough to take advantage of all that combined rendering strength. Budget seems to have room for the GTX770-4GB so that is what I would recommend.

Case: Cooler Master NSE-500-KKN1 ATX Mid Tower Case ($77.98 @ Newegg)
I really like the internal layout on this case. The offset 2.5" cage offers more clearance for GPUs than typical mid-towers. Nice modern design and layout. Good value for what appears to be a fairly high quality case.

Power Supply: Rosewill Capstone 650W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($79.99 @ Amazon)
Sized to support the future SLI upgrade path with headroom to spare at stock clocks. (CPU+GPU+GPU under a stress test would be ~550W for this rig, that leaves you ~100W for all the "little" things (RAM, HDs, SSD, southbridge, ethernet, sound controller, case fans, cpu fan, etc).... Plenty!

Total: $1191.98

No MIRs and all shipping is included in this price.
