    I'm just entering the PC gaming world and with the help of a friend put together this rig that I could possibly build

    CPU:Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
    CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler
    Motherboard: Asus Z87-WS ATX LGA1150
    Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory
    Storage (SSD): OCZ Vertex 4 256GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
    Storage (HDD): Seagate Constellation ES.3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
    PSU: Corsair Professional 1050W 80 PLUS Silver Certified ATX12V / EPS12V
    GPU: 2x EVGA GeForce GTX 770 4GB
    Case: Corsair Obsidian Series 800D ATX Full Tower Case

    When put together, would everything be in working order? This build currently costs 2.8k, and I'm open to any opinions on where I could cut back (GPU excluded). Also, how long would this be viable for playing games on High + settings?
    Thanks in advance!

    *Edit*
    For the GPU, which of these GPU's would be the best option for this rig? The GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 770 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 (3 fans 460$), the MSI Gaming GTX 770 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 (2 fans $480), EVGA GeForce GTX 770 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 ($520), or the EVGA GeForce GTX 770 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 (2 fans $520)

    That's quite something you're planning there, what monitor are you going to use? A this kind of horsepower isn't really needed if you're planning on gaming on a normal 1080 monitor.

    All the videocards you list are good cards. I myself would opt for one 780 though, and add another one when they get cheaper.

    I'll be using a single monitor (not sure what yet).
    Im building this rig as an overhead for star citizen which comes out in two years, so i thought I should go kinda crazy with the 770 even though as you said its a bit much instead of going with the 780.
    Would you have any idea when the time frame for the drop in price would be? Because if its in Q1 or Q4 of next year im worried that other GPU's that would have competed with the 770 SLI would come out and make me have to completely upgrade the single 780.

    I would expect a drop in price to be depending on how well AMD will do with the HD9000 series (Q4?). Failing that it will happen when Nvidia releases the GTX800 series.

    One of the concerns I've been hearing is that the EVGA gtx 770 might not fit in the case. Would it fit in this one?

    Who told you that the 800D is a huge case and the 770 is not a very big card.
