People probably won't want to Skype with a stranger.

What's your budget, and what will this PC be for?

15,000$, ey?

Well, that's going to be quite a beastly PC.

I can't really help you, I'm afraid - My forte is designing PCs on a smaller budget (under 1000$).

For a PC that expensive, you'll need the help from someone who knows something about super expensive PCs. Someone will probably arrive soon.

Good luck :)

Here is a build that's only $5000 but is all you really need for gaming. You can add whatever mouse and keyboard you want and case fans if you want. I am not an expert on high end builds but this should more then meet your needs.

I do agree with giliara to be honest.

There's no real reason to spend more than about 3000$ on a gaming PC - max of 5000$

The kind of monitor or TV you'll be using to play your games is just as important as the PC that runs them. This PC you're building will be capable of playing games at 120 FPS but a lot of monitors and TV's are only capable of displaying 60 Hz (also called refresh rate). So you could end up wasting a lot of the performance that your PC is dishing out unless you have a 120+ hertz monitor.
