Gaming at 1920x1080 Max Settings 60FPS Minimum ANY GAME

I’m only interested in single monitor, 1920x1080 resolution, Max Settings, playing at 55 FPS minimum for ALL games with a budget of $1000 for the Motherboard, RAM, CPU & GPU(s).
Due to the nature of my needs I'm not interested in overclocking ANYTHING, unlocked CPU’s & bottlenecks of any kind (if possible). I’ve gone over tons of articles & benchmarks regarding a wide variety of GPU’s & CPU’s. I’d like to point out that I’m aware of the faster diminishing returns involving when buying components at their highest price point for example 1 GTX Titan vs 2 R9 280x's.

  1. wow. Impossible. Because of that, the CPU is crap, I raised the budget to 900 cuz thats the least i can do for 1080p gaming at at least 60FPS. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1WqwI with this might as well have said at least 100fps.

  4. I was budgeting for $800(budget before the op edited) but for $1000 I would swap the 770 for a 780, r9-290x or a 780Ti when they are released on the 7th. That said the GTX 770 will currently max our everything @ 1080p, but in a year or so newer games may require lowering some settings. Also the motherboards in my options both support SLI so you could add a 2nd card later for added performance.
  5. the 770 wont let you play on Ultra at 55FPS. The r9 290X is better than the Titan so it will let you run on ultra for at least 60FPS
  6. With Crysis 3 on ultra @ 1080p the 770 will average ~40 FPS(still playable) depending on the clock speeds. And with the original $800 budget it was the best option.
  7. OP can wait two weeks and then GT 780 is in budget.
    New GTX 780Ti is coming out so 780 price is coming down.
