$1,000-1,300 (gaming) Build

  The title says it all, im looking to build a 1,000-1,300 gaming pc


Budget: 1,000-1300

Uses: Gaming, and day to day computing

What i need: Everything, PC, OS, Monitor and all

Problems ive had while researching: Where should most of my money go? all into gpu over getting a ssd? Go amd and boost gpu and ssd? 

Preferences: Future proof

Some builds ive looked at: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Killerfrenzy96/saved/2crU, http://pcpartpicker.com/b/D9j, http://pcpartpicker.com/b/Eav,  http://pcpartpicker.com/b/DWU, http://pcpartpicker.com/b/DWI, http://pcpartpicker.com/b/EWB, http://pcpartpicker.com/b/EW0


http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1v1qU I took the same build in the post above me, but I switched it to an unlocked processor to take advantage of the cpu cooler, and put some better quality ram that is also low profile so you don't have to worry about the height of the ram interfering with the cpu cooler, which the other ram more than likely would. I don't see any other problems with the build, looks solid. Maybe get a cheaper mobo and get a 120gb SSD? Maybe someone else can shed some light on this.

Why haswell over ivy(or sandy)? other than the new socket it spikes alot with tempature, is (i belive) harder to overclock (because of temps), im using a dedicated gpu, im not worried about power consumption and the preformance boost is minimal

Also if i can put 100-200 dollars more into it, should i upgrade to a 770 or a ssd?

I recommend grabbing this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161420&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

it beats the 760 and when overclocked and or at a higher resolution than 1080p can perform like a 770. That also gives you headroom in your budget for an ssd. For that I recommend grabbing a Samsung 840 Evo.

AMD CPU: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1whyd

Intel CPU: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1whpM

The AMD option gives the best video card option. The cooling solution for each should allow for a medium overclock and the power supplies enough power to add a second video card with some overclocking headroom.
