Debating on building an updated gaming machine later this month/early next month. I want a better gaming rig for when the occulus rift dev kit 2 ships out. I am looking closely at the i5-4690K Haswell devil's canyon cpu. Mobo wise I like the looks of the ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO, 16 gigs of ram, ssd hard drive and a EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti vid card.
I like what I have read about the overclock ability of the cpu and think I would probably water cool it and see how well it overclocks.
Any opinions on this cpu or any of the other parts I listed? I think that would make for a good solid gaming rig for right now.
