I’m looking to build a new gaming PC which is an upgrade from my previous:

i5 3570k
8GB 2133MHz Ram
1TB Samsung Harddrive
GTX 780 Superclocked
850Watt Integrator Power Supply

This new build will be for Gaming and school work purposes.

I don’t plan to overclcok this CPU.as it’s base clock goes up to 4Ghz on boost. Therefore I’m using a B360 board. I’m using the crucial ram, even though it’s not a pretty boy, I’ve never looked at my ram in my pc and gone, wow look at that plain casing. I’ve already got an ssd, and I’ll plan to upgrade to 16GB of ram at a later stage if I feel I’ll need it.

Looking for opinions on the price it will cost, the spec and feel green to suggest other builds taking my current SSD in mind.

Thank you!
