So about to purchase this build I am new to this and it's gonna cost a lot so with that being said this system is overkill for the game I play the most which is wow I wanna be able to play in ultra in 25 man raids and never drop beyond good frame rates now with that being said the video card might be to strong and I could probably save a lot of money going cheaper routes on a lot of components any suggestions with still being able to play the way I want

If you're main game is WoW, this whole build is overpowered and expensive for WoW. You would be able to run World of Worldcraft at 4K with this build, however, it's unnecessary. For something WAY cheaper and would be able to run most games at 1080p, 60fps at high settings, go for something like this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/yHwBhM
You would be saving a lot of money.

Thats just a straight up silly build.

WoW is an older game, even with its graphical patches there is no way it would ever need a GTX 780 Ti for 1920x1080, unfortunately Anand is doing maintenance right now, they have CPU and GPU benchmarks for WoW but we will need to wait a bit for them to be operational again.

The PSU selected is ridiculous, you don't need a 1kW PSU and you can pick up the XFX 750W Gold which is actually a better PSU for $60 less

I didn't even realize they were still selling the raptor drives, they are grossly outperformed by SSDs and don't fare much better than a good 2TB drive during sequential reads so it is a complete waste of money.

You can save $20 and get better/faster ram

There are a ton of ways this build could be improved, right now it is a copious waste of money.

The i5 4670k is above average for streaming and watching videos. The only people who needs an i7 is for someone who does extreme rendering, editing or programming. You'll be fine. How ever if you want, get 16 gigs of ram. It'll help A LOT if you want to do multiple things at once without any stuttering.
