So, I finally have the money to build looking to get something I the 2,000 range give or take. I've asked for a lot of help on here but I am still having trouble making up my mind. I currently have 1 1080p monitor and will probably get another one. My goal for this build is to play everything maxed out and be able do do that for a while, but I'm having a really hard time deciding what to get. I have 2 specs price out and am open to any suggestions. I could order now or wait till devils canyon comes out not sure if that's worth it since I won't be over-clocking till I feel my system needs a boost. Mobo, psu, CPU and graphics card are what have been giving me the most trouble, here's what I got.

I also don't have peripherals yet but figured I could use a crappy keyboard and mouse till I get it put together. 4770k was just to get a idea of what that would cost vs the 4670k not sure of what to go with I will be doing some video editing but that is hardly important to me.

Hello and welcome.

The better option is the first build.

For peripherals, you can use this until you get something more long term.

If you don't plan on overclocking, there really isn't a need for your liquid cooling. That being said, liquid cooling is pretty amazing in terms of the idea and all, but its not needed if you will just be running at the standard clock rate set by Intel. you'd be fine with a 60$ Noctua cooler that may possibly have a bundle deal with one of your other parts.
