Here's a beast with 3 GTX 770's and an i7-4770K , you may drop prices with a i5-4670K and remove the SSD , but when it fits the budget , why not get the best ?

heres what i wouild get
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1dbTz

the ram can be price matched for 54.99 at us.ncix

as for the build above me

-i have no idea why you would recommend a h60 that barely cools better than a hyper 212 evo
-faster ram does nothing
-the i7 does nothing for gaming. yeah he can afford it, but when it doesnt do anything, why have it in the first place
-the gk104 chip isnt great for multi-monitor setups due to the lack of vram. and even if you have the 4gb edition, the GPU is too weak to drive it

The H60 2013 edition is much better and cooler compared to the other versions.
The i7 will help in long run , so will the fast memory.
I agree with the GK104 though. Two GTX 780's are better.

no. the only thing that changed is the lighted pump and the slight modifications to the tubing. its still a crappy thin aluminum radiator and the same low quality pump

by the time it matters, the rig is already outdated enough that 3 fps makes zero difference.

the ram makes no difference regardless. gaming does not require faster ram unless you are getting a APU system
