Need Part Suggestions Based on Prexisting List

Hello, I am currently building a PC and need some help deciding on if these are good parts and if i should change out stuff based on a slightly flexible 1500 dollar budget.

CPU- I have Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core

CPU Cooler- Corsair H60 54.0 CFM Liquid

Motherboard- Asus Z87-Pro ATX LGA1150

Memory- Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600

Storage- Samsung 840 Series 120GB 2.5" SSD

Video Card- Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 4GB

Case- Rosewill THOR V2 ATX Full Tower

Power Supply- Rosewill 750W ATX12V / EPS12V

Optical Drive- Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer

Operating System- Microsfot Windows 8.1 (32/64-bit)

If you could tell me what I'm missing and if i should add or change anything to make it more optimum that would be appreciated.



I would change the H60 cooler for a better watercooler, or a similarly priced air cooler.

I assume that this is a gaming build? You could save a good amount of money by purchasing 2x 4GB of RAM. 16GB is really overkill for a gaming build. Most games only require 4GB, so 8 is pretty future proof.

Consider a smaller, more efficient PSU. Most Rosewill units are fine, and high wattage units are not a problem. But I prefer to invest in quality, rather than headroom. You could power this build on 450-500, easily.

You need a 64-bit OS if you'e using more than 4GB of RAM.

Also make sure that your power supply is at least 80+ Bronze rated.

so i changed the power supply out to a Rosewill 550W ATX12V / EPS12V and the cooler to Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer 81.3 CFM Liquid and then the memory to Corsair Dominator Platinum 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866. a Are these good fixes or could you suggest better?

Here's a quality power supply.  If you want modularity, I can find one for you.

A cheap Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo will perform as well as an H60.

Faster RAM isn't necessary if you're gaming.  If you do video rendering, then that's a different story.

A kit like this will be just fine for most people.  No need for fancy RAM.

If you want to do some video rendering/editing, then it's worth it to invest in a faster RAM kit.

The Dominator Platinum memory seems like an awful lot of money for memory. Are the looks really worth it? Also, do you really need 16 gigs? I have 16 gigs or Corsair Vengeance 1600, but the blue matches my motherboard which looks cool through the window, and I paid $80. At the time an 8-gig kit was $60, so it was not that bad. 

I would consider less expensive RAM. Also,  Iwould look at these PSUs: (I have this one)

And if you can find it:


I will mostly be doing gaming on here but i will also be doing some video editing and rendering.

The adata kit will work well for you, then.

Here is a 1500ish build for you Grahymer, it comes to 1536 roughly you had 1500 to work with and that is what I think you will enjoy it is within your price range feel free to modify the build since this is ultimately your PC and what I may like you may not feel free to edit anyone
