I know I should had built it myself but with little experience, little kids running around the house, and practically no time to do it. I placed a order for my new PC.

I still want to upgrade memory to 16GB real soon and I'm going to pick up a SSD in the next day or so but this is what I got.

1 x Case Rosewill Thor V2 Gaming Case - Black

1 x Processor Intel® Core™ i7-4770K Processor (4x 3.50GHz/8MB L3 Cache) - Intel® Core™ i7-4770K

1 x Motherboard ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer - 3 x PCIe 3.0 x16, 4 x USB 3.0, HDMI-in, Killer gaming Gigabit LAN

1 x Memory 8 GB [4 GB X2] DDR3-1600 Memory Module - Corsair

Not bad, though the old fashioned enthusiast in me still gets uncomfortable when people buy ASRock components. What make of PSU is it?

ASROCK are acutally WAY better than they used to be. They used to be cheap, god awful components but their actually very decent these days as the companies got bigger/more popular, the quality has improved dramatically, but I know what you mean Korwin. 8bit - good build... nice and solid should last you awhile

Not a big fan of Rosewill cases (Newegg's generic brand.) When you say water cooling, do you mean a dedicated loop with the GPU cooled as well or just a All-In-One cooler? A lot of companies slap a cheap AIO water cooler on the CPU and charge a large premium saying it is "water-cooled." Those coolers can be purchased starting at $50. A dedicated loop (proper water-cooling) starts at around $400 with GPU and CPU cooled. Huge difference there. Everything else looks fine. IMO the 770 wouldn't be worth water-cooling, they run cool on air. 780's are awesome water cooled though.
