Oh, I don't have a clue. I think that there are plenty of people on here who would know, though.

It's a computer!

Yes its worth it to wait, even if just for the 4690K which comes out in june. Wait til then, see what the prices are and yeah.

Is there any difference between brands for certain parts such as mobo, ram, storage? It seems like most parts seem to serve the same purpose other than their color and logo. I'm not entirely sure.
Good question. Yes there are major differences sometimes. Storage is one of those grey areas, basically just look for ones that are reliable.
As for mobo's, huge differences between boards, though doubtful you will notice if you arent looking for them. some boards overclock better then others, some boards are better quality, yada yada.
Ram, I'm not too familiar with ram unfortunately, so no real comment.

You really wouldn't notice in 85% of games that support it, honestly, I've been back and forth with amd to nvidia and I didnt notice one single thing.

Absolutely, think of it like this. The PSU supplies power to the parts. Now a crappy PSU wont regulate the power to the parts or just wont supply enough through each line. Also bad PSU''s can explode, taking the whole system with it. So yes its worth it to get a good PSU, you can take them between computers.

i5-4670K will most likely be updated with "Devil's Canyon" i5-4690K in June. 4690K will be only a tiny bit faster at stock settings, but is expected to overclock MUCH better than the existing 4670K. Definitely worth waiting for if overclocking.

Nvidia GTX 880 and 870 release date is unknown. Some rumors say as early as June 2014, others as late as March 2015. Whenever it happens, it's reasonable to expect that GTX 870 performance will be similar to 780 but with much lower power consumption, causing 780 prices to drop to liquidate them and putting additional price pressure on 290/290X.

I would avoid amd, I'm using both and the gpu driver are atrocious in my opinion. Can't even utilize mantle without stuttering. Just more complicated than it needs to be, but this is just my personal opinion like i said.

I'm so envious, i remember being where you are now many moons ago, only advice I guess I can offer is. Start simple and build your way up, with lots of research, take time build up a good knowledge of parts. Who does what best and why.

Just dont try and run before you can walk is the best moto, I have seen countless guy's from my clan and others get into building rigs and then forever hounding everyone to fix their issues or worse have fried parts.

For eg: I sold some old parts to a guy I gamed (very heavily with) at the time. He managed to build his new rig, including the parts I sold him. Only to fry the cpu almost instantly as he forgot to use the thermal paste.

Builds are easy, but after some bad experiences my self (generally pushing stuff too hard) I have learned that patience is a virtue.

Good luck though and post your results.
