Location: Dublin Ireland
Build:High End Gaming PC
Parts: Everything
Preferences: Nvidia and Intel
Budget: 2000euro(can anyone tell me how to use the euro sign on the number four on the keyboard please)

Hey guys, I am getting a new Gaming PC at the end of August. I was saving to buy the parts and was planning on attempting my 1st home build but have been looking at Cyber Power.com and they have what I think is a fairly decent build. It is slightly over my budget however. Have a look and see what you all think. I will switch my gaming time between a single monitor(which i'll buy later) and on my 47" 1920x1080p T.V and am really looking for the biggest bang for my buck performance wise. I want to be able to play all the latest graphics intensive games on Ultra settings, with a min of 60 fps. I'm thinking along the lines of The Witcher 3 on ultra, without really breaking a sweat. Is it possible on my budget?? Any help and or suggestions greatly appreciated. I won't be overclocking and would rather not sli if i can help it. I prefer intel and nvidia over amd. Anyway here is the build that caught my eye....

Price in euros comes to around 2300, I was hoping to get away with spending 2000 on the button but for the sake of them putting it all together for me and delivering it to my door I think the extra 300 maybe reasonable. Any thoughts/suggestions???

Great case ..... I like it in white tho :) 

I don't get the LGA 2011 choice for a gaming build. I'd use a Asus Z87 WS w/ 4670k

I'd do away w/ the tall Heat Spreader things which will hit ya cooler.

I'd choose twin 4GB Gigabyte GTX 770s over the single 780

CX series from Corsair is there "low budget" line ..... doesn't "fit" with all the rest being high end components

HD - Caviar Black 1TB
SSD - Samsung 840 Pro 128GB

Why go two 770s? I am not a big fan of sli as I heard it can be problematic, so maybe I should get a 690/titan instaed of a 780? I will change the mobo and the ram! Any other suggestions on were i could save money or gain in performance?
