Hey guys, just want some final opinions.

I plan on running games such as DayZ, LoL, BF4/future BF games, and a few other MMO/RPG's.

Would like to run them maxed at decent frames, is this capable of doing it?

So after numerous topics and going back and forth with a few different people, this is what the list looks like.

Looks good. But I might save a few on just a heat sink cooler master 212 EVO for what you're using it for instead instead of water cooler. Also, that ram seems a bit expensive. Go for 1600mhz - no difference than 1866 and should be around 80 bucks for 2*4 gigs (8) and same manufacturer. Also, unless you really need the 250gb with ssd, get a 120gb ssd with Samsung for 80 bucks and run your OS only. EDIT - Sorry just saw Australian prices. No matter, save on ram and cooler. That hyper 212 EVO is great and 120 gb ssd is all you need for your OS and a few random programs. Excellent GPU. Don't change that.

I had a 212 Evo there originally but i plan to overclock so the H100i feels like the better option.. plus, it looks cool. ;)

And i plan on putting more then just the OS on the SSD (Things like LoL, things with more loading screens...) however ill put BF4 and so on onto the HDD.

I was going with the gigabyte GTX 770 4GB originally, but after a few people recommended i looked into the R9 290 i went onto a few different forums/websites and seen for alittle extra the 290 was better.

Yeah GPU - keep that. And I didn't know you wanted to oc a lot, so yeah keep water. And I will say, if you can afford larger ssd, go for it. Still, 1600mhz ram leads to less problems and cheaper sometimes. With all that, yes your build will handle all that all on ultra. By the way, 750 or 650 watt psu will do. Sometimes cheaper. Great parts nonetheless.
