For mostly gaming I would get the 4670k, no need for the 4770k (I went through the same debate and chose the 4670k, very happy with it).

I would also get 16gb of ram, the extra ram is nice to have.

The SSD is very good (same as I have).

780 is great! In would recommend checking the classified though, you can end up saving a good chunk of change, especially for us Canadians.

As for the PSU, I would go with Shilka's recommendation. But for what its worth I have a Seasonic G-650 and I am very happy with it. Even though its only semi modular every cable that is attached you end up using.

Just keep an eye on the sales on NCIX, Canada computers, Newegg and occasionally even Tigerdirect.

The reason I wanted the 4770k was because it gives me more headroom in the future. I think a 4770k and 8gb of ram might be more beneficial than a 4670k and 16 gb of ram based on what I've seen. But, again I could be wrong. Thanks for the suggestions though. I'll definitely look at classifieds
