I am in the market for my first gaming desktop. I'm currently using my Asus G53JW for EVERYTHING at the moment. I need something that will last me for a while and I would appreciate any feedback on my build. Any recommendations on a gaming build would help as well. I'll probably only use this pc for gaming most of the time but also for watching videos and browsing the web. Well, onto my build and your opinions/recommendations will be greatly appreciated!

Let me know what you guys think!

P.S. My budget is $2000 at most but if you guys could recommend a build that'll save me some bucks and still satisfy my gaming needs.. Give me your input! Thanks in advance.

Pretty good all round, just one small switch needed. Get the 4670k. It will save you a bunch of money and you won't see a performance difference.

yes to the cpu change, no to the wd black hdd. =seagate spinpoint better spent resources. No to the psu, xfx 550 pro or other seasonic made unit for 60 - 80 $'s. Buying an evga $650 graphics card seems almost insane?
I bet it only lasts 30 months.


30 months? Seems legit. What would you recommend?
