Solved

What do you think about my (first) PC build? will it work good?

I had a budget around $1300(I live in Hungary so it is 300-320 000 Forints)
I would use it for daily gaming. I play League of Legends the most, Skyrim and after buying it would play AC Unity, Thief and games like these...
I look for ideas on changes and opinions.
Where I've put a * it means it's not sure yet.

So that's my build:
ASUS Direct CU II* GTX 770
Intel i7 4790* w/ factory cooling*
A motherboard at max $120 !with SLI feature!
Corsair* 2x4GB 1600/1866Mhz RAM
Corsair/CM* 650-750 Watts PSU
WD Caviar Blue 1TB
OCZ/Kingston* 120/128 GB SSD
CM N500* (no window) case
(Windows 7 Pro)
+ I need a !21"/22"! monitor

Thx for every answer! :wahoo:

    This looks good but why do u prefer amd over Nvidia?
    I read they say it has a worse cooling and can get hot easily.
    And if I dont want to overclock then is my i7 4790 ok?
    Hmmm the monitor is also good but can't be purchased in my country yet...
    If u could have any other suggestions my monitor budget is around 220 dollars

    The R9 290 is the best price/performance card,period.
    I really don't mind picking NVidia over AMD and vice versa,but the R9 290 is cheaper and it performs nearly the same as the GTX 780.
    For gaming,you don't need an i7,an i5 4690(k) is the best one.For gaming only ofc.
    If the i5 4690 is cheaper in your country than the 4690K then go for the 4690. And vice versa.
    If you'd like to Crossfire in the future,then go for this build:

    I think that the build is great,the monitor is the only thing left unanswered. :)

    Thanks for looking after it but there is only one problem, I sit close to the monitor and that's why I need a 21/22" one. I know they are really rare these days but if you have any other suggestions i really appreciate it. ;)
