Help me build a gaming system...

Please help me get a motherboard & processor combo to run Fallout 4.

Fallout 4 Minimum Requirements
CPU: Intel Core i5-2300 2.8 GHz/AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0 GHz or equivalent
Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti 2GB/AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB or equivalent

Fallout 4 Recommended Requirements
CPU: Intel Core i7 4790 3.6 GHz/AMD FX-9590 4.7 GHz or equivalent
Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB/AMD Radeon R9 290X 4GB or equivalent

Here's what I've got that should be good enough for now:
1 Case (good to go)
2 Antec VP630F 630w ATX Power Supply
3 EVGA GeForce GTX 750Ti Superclock w/G-SYNC Support 2GB GD GTX 750 Ti SC

I know I'll need RAM, but that will depend on the mobo, so no biggie there.

If there are any slickdeals, I'm all over it. I've just be out of the hardware scene for too long, so I have no idea what's good enough...as well as what WILL BE good enough once newer games come out. So, I'm not afraid of going a little BIG to avoid the need to upgrade in a few months....lol.

So any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks!

You don't mention the budget you're working with. But depending on what you plan on playing after Fallout 4, you will probably want to get a GPU with more VRAM.

Googled and found this benchmark video for the current card you've selected, quality and frames are all personal preference of course: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXsoRkFwrno (20fps ultra setting, 30ish on high)

I think this should run fallout 4 pretty well for under $500 http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Nd8Kyc
Any feedback on this AMD build is appreciated

AnandTech has excellent guides. I have built half a dozen machines from their guides.
