http://i.imgur.com/IDC9Ir2.png You dont really need thermal paste because the cooler master hyper 212 evo includes it. My build for the same money has a better cpu because it can be overclocked, cooler gpu, you dont need the 4gb version there isnt much of a difference unless you are going to be 3d vision. My build has a faster ssd, better psu, and cheaper monitor.

The build looks pretty good.

Though I would go with a Z87 Motherboard.

Go with a 770 with 2gb instead. 4Gb is only necessary when playing 3D vision or using a higher resolution (higher than 1080p).

All parts are newegg and amazon. The dvd drive is available at newegg for the same price. So is the hyper 212 evo its available at newegg and amazon for the same price. The ssd is only at micro center for that price so I would get it beacuse its only 6 dollars for shipping. This build is really worth the extra money because of the 780. Plus there is an all out red color scheme. I think you will enjoy it.

I wish I could afford that, But I have to include a new monitor in my prices. Here is an updated revised build IF it doesn't show where its coming from then its newegg or amazon, pcpartpicker didn't have all the prices matching the actual websites. What do you think of this?
