Re: Building a New Gaming PC - $1000
Few problems here. Firstly, don't expect tip top performance from any of these parts for anything over 3 years in terms of like gaming FPS, or productivity as things finally start fully expanding.
Next, you chose a non overclocking CPU, but a board that allows overclocking. Doesn't make much sense. I'm cool with the board, but I would at least spend the extra 10 or so bucks and get the 4670k.
Next up skip the Adata 64GB SSD. That's almost pretty much pointless. For the bigger drive, either get the 840pro or go with a Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB. Use this as your boot, programs, ect, instead of having a dual SSD system. Trust me when I say, it'll save headaches.
Finally the GPU. Take the extra cash saved from ditching the extra SSD and get a 770. It'll last longer in terms of raw performance since you said you don't game the most recently published titles.
