The motherboard is totally overkill unless he will overclock using water, a motherboard for max 150 dollars will work fine even for OC to 4.5Ghz. 8gb ram just doesnt cut in if you are making a build like this, 16gb I would take. I dont know about having one gtx 780 vs two for 1440, but as long as the screen is 60hz you dont need more then 60 fps anyways. For 2500-3000 dollars, I would take this. No screen included because I dont know anything abour screens.

I would take something like this:

I picked that case because I didn't know a better case(with support for a 240/280 radiator, I even said he could change it/should change it.

eh, a great quality 650/660W power supply is fine for the build.

I also listed 16GB of RAM, 4x4GB, because of doing the GPU+RAM combo twice.

The motherboard is also fine, it's coming in at $165 and is EXTREMELY overkill, hopefully making his experience as trouble free as can be. It's also only $15 more then the motherboard you listed.

No, as I explained, a good quality-made 650W PSU is just fine for two GTX 780s at stock and a 4770K at 4.5 GHz. The gaming power consumption will peak at 550-575W.

Here is my 2 cents

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($324.98 @ SuperBiiz)
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth Z87 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($229.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($69.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($139.99 @ Amazon)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($89.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB Video Card ($679.99 @ Amazon)
Case: Rosewill ARMOR-EVO ATX Full Tower Case ($89.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: XFX XTR 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($109.99 @ NCIX US)
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224DB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer ($15.98 @ OutletPC)
Total: $1730.89

Ok so, CPU is obvious, motherboard maybe not so much. Here is my reasoning. I used to have a middle of the road board, the AsRock Extreme 4. Though it worked, and everything was fine and dandy, its just very simply not as good. Same as the UD3H. Nothing wrong with the board at all, but once you've experienced a board like the sabertooth, you understand more. That is why I chose a sabertooth. Also the Asus boards, like the Sabertooth, have alot of awesome features for the Haswell chips. Stuff that people who game alot would greatly appreciate. Ontop of that, its obnoxiously easy to build with a sabertooth board. Great for a noob (no offence OP).
Moving on, 8GB of ram because no need for more when gaming. 250GB SSD because then later on, when he gets adventurous, he can get a second one and run RAID 0, which is stupidly fast and awesome. 2TB HDD because storage. GTX 780ti because racecar. Now the Rosewill Armor-EVO is actually a phenomenal case. Fantastic cooling, isn't actually that loud at all and is great to build in. And for that price, why say no? Unless you actually want to go for a better case, like the NZXT Phantom 630 or the Thermaltake Urban S71. PSU is a Seasonic G-series underneither I believe (if my memory serves me correct). And the Optical drive is an optical drive, who cares, use it to install windows and throw it out.

When you feel like overclocking OP, you can go for an aftermarket cooler like this, http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005869XYK/?tag=pcpapi-20

Oh and for a monitor, I would either go for a 120hz like this
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-vg248qe
Or a 1440p like this

Might as well pre-order a 4K monitor now: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IEZGWI2/?tag=blurbust-20&link_code=as3&creative=373489&camp=211189

$700 4K monitor should fit a $3000 build budget pretty well actually.

Beyond that...

i7-4770K ~$300

CPU Cooler: ~$50-100. Almost any modern AIO CLC like the H100i, H80i, CM Nepton/Seidon series. Just make sure it fits the case wink.gif Alternatively, if you want something "cool" looking, a heatpipe cooler like the Thermalright Silver Arrow, Noctua D14, or the Zalman CNPS 9900MAX are all ultra effective and very nicely made.

Almost ANY Z87 ATX board with an 8X8X slot configuration is good. You could literally tack em all on a wall and throw a dart or pick based on color scheme and come out alright. They start at $110 and go to $300 and beyond. This market simply doesn't have "room" for junk as it's no longer mainstream, this is enthusiast class and as such, pretty much any board that meets that minimum standard is built well and has good features.The sweet spot is ~$120-180 IMO. Above that things swing towards novelty "extremes" IMO.
See if this link works: http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/motherboard/#s=24&f=2&c=89&sort=a8&qq=1&l=2
Rolling Dice: YELLOW!... Asus Z87 Pro is my recommendation. Oh look it's a beauty!

A good 2x8GB kit is appropriate for a build in this budget. ~$150
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DOP2PM4/?tag=pcpapi-20 This A-Data kit would look nice on a yellow themed Asus board like the Z87 pro, you know, if your dice happen to land that way. Comes with a 2400 speed XMP profile loaded up. Simple RAM overclocking.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148657 This tactical kit is a lower speed, lower voltage, tight timing configuration that would be fun to overclock if you're the "tinkering" type.

2xGTX780 ~$1000, Giga Windforce or EVGA ACX IMO.
This will handle games at 4K pretty well. Just remember, you're dealing with WAY more detail from resolution here, so running "ultra-everything with AA" all the way down the settings tab shouldn't be the goal. Turn settings down to get smooth FPS. It's still going to look better on the 4K monitor than it would have with ultra settings@1080P.

Case: Sweet spot for value on a build in this budget is going to be cases ~$100. I'm going to throw out the suggestion of the Corsair C70 for $125. Cooler Master N600 ~$100, and Fractal Design Arc Midi / Define series as a few random suggestions that are nice. But there are SO many to choose from that are high quality and in this price class.

Even though you could get by with a 650W, I think I would go ahead with a 750W purely for the sake of knowing that there's an extra ~100W of never-to-be-touched overhead. Is it needed? no, but 750W Capstone is only ~$100.

240GB M500: $120

2TB overflow/backup drive: ST2000DM001 $90

Optical drive: $20

Backlit gaming keyboard ~$50

Mouse: ~$30

OS: $90

That's about $3000. Probably better stop there wink.gif

$700 4K monitor should fit a $3000 build budget pretty well actually.

Use a regular 1080P 23" for a secondary monitor (~$120-140)

Beyond that...

Mouse: ~$30

OS: $90

That's about $3200. Probably better stop there wink.gif

 

That 750W Capstone isn't modular, unlike the PSUs that have been mentioned already. So, now of course we need to find out if Lewshus75 would be ok with that.

On a dual GPU setup, with an optical at the top of the case and a pair of drives at the bottom of the case, modular won't do jack for cable management. Be lucky to save a single darn cable. Though the modular version is what, $10 more? He can go either way.
