Default Finally Building New!

Hey guys I'm looking to get a new rig after this deployment, I have a monitor, OS, and case so I can probably re-use these parts.

I'm looking to spend around 1200...but will go as high as 1500 for a great performance boost.

Any suggestions? Thanks

I have an Antec 300 Illusion...but I can get another since this will be hard to ship to my new house.

I will be running Windows 7...have been debating whether to jump to 8 or not.

I'll be gaming with this...streaming Starcraft II and League of Legends

Really looking to get into BF4 and the next gen games

MAX Settings^^

The 300 would be fine for any build. If you don't want to use/keep it let me know.

If the OS copy is OEM and has been used on a different motherboard you'll need to get another copy. Unless it's a not so legit version.

Without case and OS:

CPU:
Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I54670K

Motherboard:
Newegg.com - ASRock Z87 PRO4 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

RAM:
Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX - Newegg.com

PSU:
SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

GPU:
Newegg.com - MSI N780-3GD5 GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card

SSD+HDD:
Newegg.com - Seagate 600 Series ST240HM000 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Newegg.com

$1413

Leaves you room for a case if you decide to leave the 300 behind.
