First one for gaming. definitely.
Go for even better than the 770 if you can to have more performance, like a 780 or 290/290x.
But then your I would switch your PSU to a Seasonic for example.
Good choice of components overall and of case!

Z87 works perfectly fine with i5 4590.
The aftermarket cooler is cheap and just nice to have instead of the stock cooler.
You should not put an optical drive in your system. Plz.

And 850 watts is for great SLI later on.

Thanks for the replies. Is the i5-4690k worth paying £10 more for over the 4670k?, also if i go with a gtx 770 and 650w psu would i be able to sli it with another 770 or would i need a 750w for that?

For SLI 700-800W would be a safe bet. The 4690K has abit more stable overclocking and lower OC temps than 4670K.
