I finally got my new computer together. I had problems with my first build. I kept getting constant device connect/disconnects. It was driving me crazy and I couldn't isolate it. I suspected one of two things. Defective motherboard or bad/incompatible power supply.
So it cost me a little extra because I got a new board and power supply, but now it works perfectly.
Haswell i5-4670k - $200
8 GB DDR3 1600 Ram - $60
Asrock Z87 Extreme6 Board - $140
Corsair H50 Water Cooler - $50
Rosewill Blackhawk Case - $60
GTX 760 - $250 w/ Splinter Cell Blacklist
Blu-Ray RW - $70
Intel 802.11 AC wireless receiver - $45
XFX 850 Watt Power Supply - $135
500 GB SSD - $320
2 TB Hard Drive - $100
My goal without SSD was to be around $1000. So I'm a little over.
One thing I will say, 802.11 AC is legit. I'm connected wirelessly and I'm getting the full 50 MBps from my cable modem across the room. I would recommend an 802.11 Ac router and wireless connector. At first I was worried the 802.11Ac wasn't going to be that big of an improvement. But it's waaaay better then wireless-N.
This is how the big three approached E3 this year IMO.
Microsoft: "Americans love the xbox like grandma and apple pie."
Sony: "Apples! How do you like them apples!"
Nintendo: "Err, who wants to play Mario Kart? Anybody?"
