I think this is the best performance you can possibly get for around this price of 1500$.

You can save another 30-40$ dollars if you can acess microcenter. But yea, this should be able to run three or four 1080p monitors on max setting!!!

Well. a single GTX 770 alone will max out pretty much every single game on 1080p.

With a dual 770, You're getting 40% more performance than a Titian that costs over 1000$.

This is pretty much the ultimate gamer's dream PC. If you spend anymore, it won't really give you any more realistic performance for the price increase.

You can already run 3 1080p monitors on max

Edit: and Microcenter is a computer parts store. They sell parts somewhat chaper than most online sites, so if they're close to your house, you should buy it from them.

Only downside is they only do in store pick-ups. Which means you'll have to live near them

Only upgrades i can really think of is upgrading to a 840 Pro for the SSD. Also, if you're going to OC a extreme amount, you may need a 850 watt PSU.

But that's just an extra 50$ of upgrades at most. I didn't put them on because they'll blow your budget even more, also the setup i selected should be fine.

If you build this, it'll be one sweet PC :)

Also just telling you. Unless you're going to use 3 1080p monitors. Just get one 770. It should be able to handle almost every single game on max.

You can always get the second 770 for a SLI if you decide to go for surround gaming

Should save you a ton as without the 400$ on the second GPU. It'll only come to around 1100$

i prefer buying it all together incase anything goes wrong.
so i created something for you, should be good just built in CPU cooler and no SSD with 1x 770 the price of the above is better but i cant just make it all by myself without damaging it or looking at the ugly wires. anyway here's the link

i want to know if the 770 would do good at 2560 x 1080 res with just one? i was looking at an article here and it reported around 53 fps with the 2560 x 1440.
