Nice but I wouldn't buy that gpu with 4gb. 2gb is enough for 1080p gaming.

What games are you going to play.

Also not sure if you built your build around a certain budget but don't forget to get Windows too.

GTX 770 is very good but if you could add little bit more,buy gtx 780 then. You will not regret thumb.gif
But if you have budget just grab one of gtx 770. I would rather go for Asus or Gigabyte because of silence and cooling. But you can google little and see which one is right for you. Also if you like AMD you could go for r9 290 but DO NOT buy it with reference cooler otherwise you will regret biggrin.gif

How can you recommend a card without knowing what games the OP is going to play? -rep

Yup you are right but for future reference check with OP gaming needs.

The 770 will play those games well.

The 780 will play more into the future say 2-3 years @1080p. This card will also keep higher frames per second for that monitor.

This is talking max settings and since you have a beefy cpu I'm guessing that's what your aiming for.

Also I would get the 4gb as 2gb wont be enough in given time.
