This. My system was around 1k, but since I didn't care about getting a better gpu and just getting watercooling experience, it now has set me back around $1500.

@mocboy123:
Never overclocked. I know that the Haswells can handle pretty much anything you throw at them.
I just want to see tessalation. (you know bricks that look like brick and not blocks with flat skins)
Not really afraid to OC, I know its risky and costly if you don't have much experience and dont have a cooling system.
And sorry about the _uture proof word. smile.gif

I just want a i7 4770 series.
Maybe a i7 4771/T?
The i7 4770k is on sale over at Noob Egg and That deal is sweet.
I really dont know much about virtualization and what that's for but there's an ASUS MoBo over there that has the capabilities?

@Insane569:
1: Programming HTML, Visual Basic, C++/#, mix music, and gaming of course.

2: 1920*1080 (hopefully)
My dell 530s currently does it just fine. Most games are 1080 max with black box unless I add the cfg file when possible.

3: trying for below 1400

4:I have LCD (soon to be LED), mouse and a few keyboards.

I guess I could go for something else cheaper.
But after owing a Dell 530s since '07; I'm ready to break into 2014 and beyond with something that's fast and wont fade too soon.
And if gaming and other programs become more demanding, I wouldn't mind having something that's "Words we don't mention"
They have other MoBo's that are pretty sick. The MSI gamer 45/65's
And I kinda want the Gigabyte Sniper as green is my favorite color LOL.
But its almost featureless.

Basically, I want for sure:

Haswell
Z87 MoBo with Intel turbo boost technology and SLI
everything else is kinda whatever works.
And Was thinking of putting OS and games on SSD
and getting 3TB HDD for data.

And im not stressed about the St Patty's day sale. It kinda sucked anyways..lol

Ok cool. I'll cook you up a rig right now, but yours that you have currently wouldn't be a bad option.

for a single 1080p one graphics card is more than enough, but theres nothing wrong with getting a motherboard that is able to SLI as those extra x16 pcie lanes can be used for sound cards ect.

Yea but it's best to lay out a nice build at the beginning than to change your mind and realize you want to go custom in like half a year.
The closest way to get to "_uture proof" is by buying products that will last you a long time. Like a quality and sturdy case or a really good power supply.
Getting a motherboard that will support SLI later will be helpful in case you ever do go SLI down the road. Sure it's not the best, but when you're video card gets kind of old, its a great way to keep up with the performance. Just ask all the people who use SLI GTX 550s or 580s or what not. Best buy it now, or spend more down the road.

Ah man dude. That's mighty sweet of you. Thanks.
I dont have to have SLI especially if its going to have driver issues with windows 8.
I plan on getting a touch screen monitor eventually.
Also I was honestly worried about space and heat dissipation. That's why I was going with the ATX tower/boards.
Still want Z87 MoBo.
Will that fit in Mini-ATX?

Agree! And that's where the thought of "Words we do not mention" comes into play. LOL

Honestly, you really only need a couple of fans to cool an Intel and Nvidia system. Get a good case that comes with some fans and that'll solve that issue. I personally have 5 fans. But I also have my Athlon 750k overclocked to 4.5ghz and put out heat all day.
