Motherboard: Gigabyte Z87-UD3H ($180)

PSU: FSP Group Raider 450W Haswell-Ready Power Supply ($55)
Total cost for the hardware at the time of this writing: a cool $989 or RM3,460
Why I picked:
Processor -. With this build I wanted the best that Haswell had to offer, so I didn’t mind spending the additional 10 percent to score the Core i7-4770K. Besides, if I ever decided to overclock the rig, the unlocked multipliers would come in handy. Haswell is the codename for a processor microarchitecture developed by Intel's Oregon team as the successor to the Ivy Bridge architecture.
Memory – I picked out te 8GB (4GB x 2) ) Kingston HyperX Black DDR3-1600 Dual-Channel Kit for smoother and better performance and also because I like Black.
Motherboard- Because Haswell requires a new socket and motherboard based on Intel’s 8-series chipset, I picked Gigabyte’s $185 Z87-UD3H. As its name suggests, this board features Intel’s Z87 Express chipset, but Gigabyte doesn’t overload it with ports and third-party controllers that would ratchet up the price. The board’s accessory bundle focuses on the basics too, which helps keep costs down, and aslo has a good number of ports and 3rd party controllers
GPU- For the GPU I picked Sapphire’s $135 Radeon HD 7790 Dual-X. The Radeon HD 7790 supports the full DirectX 11 feature set and can run any game with Playable...
