I've already got the storage and OS. I'm going to be using it for gaming and general day to day work. Are there any improvements I can make or anything that I missed out?

I have the CPU cooler and can certainly recommend it.

I also have 1 stick of 8GB DDR3 RAM. Some may argue that you should get 2 x 4GB DDR3 for the 2-3% performance boost but it's up to you.

That PSU is overkill. There's really no reason to buy a motherboard like that unless you're overclocking and even then I've read that the haswell cpus dont overclock well. I bought a similar setup with a z87 motherboard and I have no use for it.

Maybe get a cheaper Motherboard/PSU/Case and spend the extra on a better graphics card? As that's all that really matters right now

A slight performance boost.

I plan to get a second 770 sometime which is why I'm going for a gaming mobo and overkill PSU.

Also while we are on the topic, which case would you recommend? Mobo and PSU suggestions are also welcome :)

Looks like you don't even need help. Kinda pointless thread.

It's up to you whether you think a £50 increase across the CPU and mono for DRM-free parts plus the extra £25 for that cooler is worth it for a chance at a 10-20% CPU performance increase, and minor decrease in stability and reliability. Personally, I wouldn't bother.

I seriously would like any suggestions to make this a cheaper PC. I'm considering changing the case at the moment to something cheaper.

The aim is to build a system that can handle games like The Witcher 3. With overclocking potential of the CPU, I don't have to worry about it bottlencking the GPU or multi GPU later on.
