Just to make you all jealous :P

The Machine which I will be building over the next month is as follows:

Intel Core i7 4770k @ 3.5Ghz
16 GB of Ram, running at 1866 MHZ
On a MSI  Z87-G45 Motherboard
With a Cooler Master GX II 750 Watt Power supply
An AMD Radeon R9 290X
A 120GB SSD as my primary Hard Drive
A Western Digital Blue 2 TB Hard drive as a secondary.
A Bluray/DVD/CD RW drive
All in a Cooler Master Scout 2 Case

3 Years later, she's still running strong - but I'm slowly pricing out my upgrade.... It will be interesting to see what's out there, and reasonably affordable in the next year or so.

When it comes to CPUs, skip Skylake and AMD's Zen for now. It's only a 10% improvement in single-threaded performance over your Haswell i7. Wait for Kabylake or Cannonlake and their AMD counterparts.
