    Hello mundiri and welcome

    It all looks good what you've chosen but here is what I would do.

    Comparing newegg prices you could get the cooler master seidon 240mm cpu cooler for 20.00 dollars more.

    Comparing newegg prices you could get this g.skill trident x 2400 MHz 8GB kit for the same price.

    Here is a cheaper and a little faster ssd with a newer controller.

    Will you need an optical drive?

    How about an operating system?

    Hi nate...
    First of all, im from serbia, so the newegg doesn't ship to serbia, and if they ship there is customs provision, for more then the 50$, and in my country that liquid cooling is like 120 euros, cause we are poor country with big prices...yea i know its funny
    For the ram memory cause cpu cooler it cant go with high profile ram memory, that a little bit of disvantage of noctua nh-d14...
    Hmm optical drive, i dont need it at start i guess, cause its all been doing with flash memory and that kinda stuff...
    And for operating system Windows 7 64-bit of course...

    And tell me one more thing is this motherboard good, with performance and a little bit for overclock maybe???
    I first wanted ga-z87-oc but i read that is older chipset there, so it may cause some problems in work...

    Sorry about that I was unaware you lived in another country.

    yeah the maximus vii ranger is a good board, you will be able to overclock with it. Your noctua cooler should do a pretty good job too., I see you getting 4.6GHZ - 4.8GHz.

    yeah you're board will do fine, if and when you need help overclocking just start a thread in the overclocking section.

    If all you're doing is gaming, swap the i7-4790k for an i5-4690k, and if possible after this get an R9 290 instead of the 280x.

    Yeah, it is much better to have a stronger GPU.

    If it's for 3D design, and that is your profession don't buy a gaming card. Buy a Quadro workstation card.

    Its not for the 3D design, its how to explain... some medium design if u understand...

    And i fit this into my budget, so if i needed better gpu performance, i may buy other card, or put 1 more in crossfire...

    I really like geforce 780ti but in my country they dont sell it :/
    And its too expensive for me right now
