Gaming Build €1600

Hey everybody,

I'll be building a new PC in about a month. I will mainly be using it for gaming but livestreaming and a little bit of editing aswell. Now my budget is around €1600 (I live in the Netherlands) and I don't need mice,keyboard etc.

The build I came up with so far:

CPU: Intel Core I5-4670K (I will be overclocking)

CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i

Mobo: Asus Sabertooth Z87 (I know its overpriced but it look so awsome! :3)

Ram: Corsair Vengeance 16gb 1600mhz

GPU: EVGA GTX 770 ACX OC (Its pre-overclocked but I will try to push it even further)

SSD: Samsung 840 250gb

Case: Fractal Design Define R4 Windowed (I am slighty worried about the temps on this case because it is "silence" optimised)

PSU: Corsair HX750 (Semi-Modular and 80+ Gold for a great price)

Sound Card: Asus Xonar DGX

I know that an i7 4770K would be better for edeting/rendering because of hyperthreading but it simply doesnt fit in my budget and I dont mind waiting a little longer. I will not go AMD only intel and only Z87.

I will be gaming on a single 24 inch monitor at 1080p but would like to upgrade to a 27 inch 1440p if the response times are getting better on those monitors.

Now what do you guys think? Im open for all sugestions aside from an AMD Cpu! :)

Thank You!

(btw sorry for my bad english! X-|)


Id switch the 770 out for a 7970 (like the HIS HD 7970 IceQ X² GHz Edition) especially if you want to overclock. 

hmm I dont know the 770 does outperform the 7970 in most games :/



Not when both cards are over clocked.
