Hi, thanks for your time and help.
I'm looking to build a PC for the first time that I will use almost exclusively for gaming. I'm looking to play/stream League of Legends with 60fps+ on ultra settings as well as other MOBAs and future high-end games on high settings with high fps.
I'm unsure as to whether or not overclocking and hyperthreading is worth it for me but I put together my build with both of these to future-proof as much as possible.
Here's my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2QG0Q
If anyone could suggest a good monitor for around $150 and tell me anything they would change for the intended use, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks for the response. I'd been thinking about the i5 4670k a lot as I figured it was a better deal overall. The gtx 780 is also a very nice upgrade that I will consider. 1 question I've heard that you need a Z87 not an H87 for overclocking is this true or it just makes it easier?

It doesn't make it easier per se but it extends your overclocking potential with some added features

Ah, I would likely not overclock until I come across a more demanding game, and I probably wouldn't overclock too much so I guess the H87 is the best for me?

I think I prefer the first build just because of some bad things I've heard about AMD, such as hotter temps and less life expectancy and I'd want this to last me 5~ years. Thanks for the help mate
