CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor

CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler

Motherboard: Asus Z87M-Plus Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard

Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

Storage: Corsair Force Series GS 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk

Storage: Corsair Force Series GS 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk

Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB Video Card

Case: Corsair Air 540 ATX Mid Tower Case

Power Supply: Corsair RM 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

Optical Drive: LG GH24NSB0 DVD/CD Writer

Total: £1332.48

Basically im planning on gaming rig with future. Please know it that im not going to buy this untill new gtx 800's serie is launched to the shops. The reason behind is that when new line of gtx will come in, i expect that 780ti price will go lower, thus final price might differ alot. Also cpu will probably experience something new so if i7s will drop to i5s current price, i would then take i7. There are alot of IFS and ORS i know, this is just hypotetical bulid. Idea behind this is that i feel like my current sigrig could gone different way and I MIGHT sell it somewhere in some time.

Also there is question about wether i should or not sell my current rig, or maybe just upgrade to 780ti after 800s launch?

Couple things, and dont take offence to this, but it looks like you built with brand names. Doesnt mean bad quality, but it does mean you often pay alot more for things.

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor (£161.99 @ Aria PC)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler (£82.92 @ Scan.co.uk) I love this cooler, but if you want better performance, go for the Kraken X60.
Motherboard: Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard (£99.98 @ Novatech) Much higher quality board, also no reason for the M-atx board honestly in that case.
Memory: Kingston Beast 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£53.98 @ Amazon UK) You only need 8GB for gaming. 8GB is plenty, take it from someone who has 16GB, totally pointless investment for just gaming.
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk (£61.99 @ Amazon UK) Higher quality and I believe faster then the Corsair ssd's you picked, and cheaper. Why not?
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk (£61.99 @ Amazon UK)
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB Video Card (£479.98 @ Dabs) Cheaper and cools slightly better then the EVGA you would have picked.
Case: Corsair Air 540 ATX Desktop Case (£104.99 @ Amazon UK) Great case, I regret not buying one. (Sort of lol)
Power Supply: XFX XTR 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply (£77.32 @ Dabs) Much higher quality PSU, less money. This I believe is a Seasonic G-series underneath. Also, you only need 550W for this build. 750W, dont quote me on this, but i believe thats not enough to run 2 GTX 780ti's. Could easily be wrong though. In any case if your not going SLI, 550W more then enough.
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHDS118-04 DVD/CD Drive (£10.78 @ Scan.co.uk) You use this once to install windows...
Total: £1195.92
I wrote my reasoning in bold.

Any questions feel free to ask!

yeah the major plan was to go with sli 780s over the time, and yeah i agree that 16gigs is a waste of money, as stated its hypothetical build.

Other note, yes i would like to stick as much of corsair as possible. yup im fanboy.

Fanboys hand out more cash for no reason, no offence.
Corsair RAM isn't that great compared to, lets say, G.Skill. Its about on par with lower end kingston. The Vengeance Pro is actually pretty good ram, but the price tag really isn't justifiable. That ram I picked out for you should go up to 2133+ when overclocked.
Corsair SSD's are tricky. Its like every other one they make is good. the latest one is great, but its so much money and slower then the Samsung 840 Pro. The 840 EVO is the best drive for your money, honestly.
Corsair makes a fantastic case. Pretty good for the money too. The Vengeance series is great for the money, the Obsidian series are some of the best cases made.
Corsair PSU's are pretty good, but you pay extra for absolutely no reason. CX and CS are absolute garbage, the GS series is ok, and the HX, TX, AX/i are great PSU's. RM series sits in that strange area. They are rolling out the fix that the original had, but the resellers are still trying to get rid of the original stock. So best to avoid them for the time being.

My friend is a corsair fanboy, even he admits that they are terrible for the money. He still overpays for the stuff anyways lol.

*EDIT*
We'll convert you to an ex-fanboy eventually

Megusta. Honestly though, dont get the Corsair RM PSU's for the reason specified above. Would hate for you to blow up a PSU. If your gunna get Corsair RAM, may as well get the Vengeance Pro if your gunna get the stuff. I do however really suggest getting the Samsung SSD's, unless you wanna spend the extra $80 per to get the good Corsair Neutron series SSD's, which are roughly the same speed as the Samsung 840 Pro.
