Edit: I really appreciate the help, i wanna play games in ultra, in a couple of month get a 4k monitor, is worth have the i7 or i go for an i5, the cooler should i get the seidon 240m or go for the 120m, or maybe corsair h100i. I chose 1300w psu because its just 20 difference with 800w, and maybe i get other gpu for crossfire, is rosewill a good choice ? i like the fact its semi modular and colorful.

1300w powersupply? even with a second card you don't need more than 1000w.

RAM you can save yourself money and just get normal 1600mhz memory, as mem speeds have very little impact in gaming

it's just $20 difference so i think more power the better, i can switch to 800w instead, same with ram, 2x4gb 1600mhz cost $80 just a 10-15 buck difference

honestly, more power isn't better. it will improve nothing for you, but like you aid it's 20 bucks, you're call.

Personally I'd go for a 780Ti, but that's just me ;)
