well the I5-3570K is only usefull if you want to overclock. If your not planning to overclock i suggest just getting a non K processor

otherwise its a solid build thumb.gif

keep in mind you chose a 3570k with a haswell motherboard....you would want the 4670k not the 3570k as its a z77 board.

Where do you live do you live near a microcenter or even a Fry's??

if you live near microcenter or frys do price matching to microcenter will save you prly 60-70$

other than that looks good..maybe grab a SSD in the future and another 760 for sli as long as your staying on 1080p resolution

the case looks a bit cheap and you might want to consider looking up for other cases too, like HAF series from coolermaster.
I also don't like that CPU cooler, i would rather save up some more and go with higher end air cooler, it will be better on the long run, trust me. I swapped my 212 evo long time ago it just didnt feel worth if for high end CPUs
Also the CPU does not work with the motherboard you want i5-4670k as mentioned before.

As stated, you'll need to change the Mobo to a Z77 board or change the CPU to a 4670K.

The PSU is pure Crap! It's built by Andyson and has only one 8pin and 6pin connectors (for a 700w unit, really?).

Choose one from this list that's on sale.
The Capstone 750 is a quality unit with four 8-pin connectors (as in most quality PSUs of the same range).
You don't need more than a 500w unit for your setup, but the Capstone can handle two 780s in SLI for future upgrades/builds.

Adding an SSD as a boot drive would give you a much better experience.

Don't cheap out on that PSU, if it isn't in the OCN Recommended Power Supplies FAQ, you probably shouldn't get it.
Here's my recommendation: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650 G 80 PLUS GOLD - $79.99 w/ $20 rebate.
Also, don't get that wireless card, it only supports up to draft-N by the looks of it.
Get this one: Intel 7260HMWDTX1 Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 PCIe - $49.99.
Don't get that cooler, and if you don't mind average cases stick with that one.
Are you interested in overclocking?

EDIT: As already stated, the i5 3570k is for LGA 1155 motherboards, but you've selected a LGA 1150 motherboard. You should choose a i5 4570k instead. Also, ninja'd, kinda tongue.gif

With other aspects (PSU, socket) already discussed I would say that it might be worthwhile also to see if you can get R9-280x for the same price perhaps? It's identical to 760 in performance but has extra 1 GB of vRAM as its in a nutshell a re-branded 7950. Not familiar with the prices on US side though, last I heard AMD offerings were somewhat overprices in there because of mining or supply issues or something like that.

For the record, the 280X is a rebranded 7970Ghz. I believe the prices of the 280X are still massively inflated in the US, especially on Newegg, which appears to be his preferred vendor. He might be able to squeeze in a 770, but otherwise a 760 should be the best for his price range. This could change if he needs/wants a more expensive CPU cooler.

Yeah - 760 is quite strong card so it's a good pick for that kind of budget build. Ofc 770 would be a bit better if possible, but if not 760 is nothing to sniff at.

Here's my recommendation: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650 G 80 PLUS GOLD - $79.99 w/ $20 rebate.
Also, don't get that wireless card, it only supports up to draft-N by the looks of it.
Get this one: Intel 7260HMWDTX1 Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 PCIe - $49.99.
Don't get that cooler, and if you don't mind average cases stick with that one.
Are you interested in overclocking?

EDIT: As already stated, the i5 3570k is for LGA 1155 motherboards, but you've selected a LGA 1150 motherboard. You should choose a i5 4570k instead. Also, ninja'd, kinda tongue.gif

EVGA SuperNova NEX650G is also crap

Why its still on the list i dont know
