Hey guys, I found this website by happenstance while trying to figure out what I'm going to purchase next.
I would like a PC computer to be fast and that can handle handle any games. I am not a computer aficionado so I get lost in the acronyms. So it's very much taking me by the hands and telling me to press play. There seems like a lot of genius' on this website that would possibly help me out? I certainly hope so!
I like the Windows7 and very ken on the best processor that I can get. No monitor of ancillaries needed.

Why not overclocking and SLI?
He want pure performance and he want his system to be able to handle any game.

Battlefield 4 / crysis 3 would make that system cry on ultra / very high.
He need at least two GTX 770s to be able to max things out.

780 / 770 won't do anything. Besides overclocking that CPU a bit is no problem. Agreed Ivy Bridge overclocks better, but this one too does to some extent.
