The next gen is coming soon and I want to build a PC that will run future AAA titles (Battlefield 4, Titanfall, Destiny, etc) at 60+ FPS at 1080p with all settings on high or max. For this I'm willing to spend around $2000 dollars. I don't have any hard and fast restrictions for components I just want to find the current sweet spot in price vs performance that will allow me to play all the next gen games in full HD glory.

I've also included a monitor in this package as I'm currenly running off an Asus G73Jh laptop and need the full setup minus mouse and headphones. I don't own a TV so I've elected to get a 27" monitor vs a 24" to better allow movie and tv show viewing from more than 2 feet away. That's also why I've thrown in a BluRay drive. As per most setups, I'm primarily going to be gaming but also web surfing and streaming Netflix.

Here's what I've come up with thusfar, please see what you think and if there is anywhere I can improve.

I've reformatted the PCPartPicker list from Reddit Markup to BBCode so it should be easier to read. Sorry about that.

Best solution

Here, it will last your at least 3-4 years to play on max settings at 40+ FPS

EDIT: Forgot the link, so here ya go: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1yQtc
EDIT 2: That HDD is nearly as fast as an SSD.
