Approximate Purchase Date: late January

Budget Range: 3000$ for components only (flexible)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, watching movies, coding, live streaming
Are you buying a monitor: Yes, 2 or 3 not limited by budget.

Parts to Upgrade: new build

Do you need to buy OS: no

Preferred Website for Parts: any website.

Location: Orangevale, California, United States


Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: 2 or 3 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I would prefer 16 GB of ram. I would prefer a full tower case but I don’t know much about cases so it’s not required. I will also be buying a mouse keyboard and 2 or 3 monitors (outside of 3000$ budget) so I wouldn’t mind seeing what you guys prefer.

Why Are You Upgrading: I want something I can upgrade when needed (hopefully not for a while as this is a large investment.)

Thank you guys for reading this and in advance for helping me pick my parts :D .

Why do you need a sound card? And there's better keyboard and mice combinations you can get than that.

I would do something like this:

Dual GTX 780TI will pretty much annihilate anything that it touches. With the difference add whatever monitor, keyboard, and mouse you want.

Lose the BD-R burner - that's just spending money when you don't need to. Unless you're using it for backups then that's different. But everything is moving toward cloud computing and online distribution. Physical media is very rarely used anymore.

I was doing some research on motherboards and i decided to go balls to the wall crazy and get the Maximus VI Extreme. i also liked the idea of a mostly red/black theme so I added the Corsair Vengeance Pro for my memory.

no its not. i know I'm probably wasting some money here but after this i wont be able to see this money for a while and i wont be able to spend it on fun stuff then. the money I'm not spending will go to investments which are risky anyway so I figure i want to make sure at least I get something from it.
