Hi, I'm new to this forum so please excuse any mistake if i were happen to make. So by the topic, I'm looking to build the best PC possibly for gaming and my budget is around 3k. I picked all my parts already on Amazons and everything equal out to $3,429.27 with taxes. I have low to moderate knowledge when it come to PC building, but a completely brain dead when it comes to picking out which part will give me the best performance possible with little cost. Therefore, i really need people's opinion. I'm not counting the possibility of overclocking my cpu but will consider if needed. After reading my list if there are other product that you think is exceptionally as good as the product i listed but for a lower price please don't hesitate to put them in your comment, and post a link to it because I'm looking to build a PC as cheap as possible but also want the best experiences. Sorry if i sound like a total spoil brat.

This is my list

Graphic's Card: I want the best graphic's card out to date and so far i heard that the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Dual FTW Graphics Card with ACX Cooler 3GB GDDR5 384-Bit 03G-P4-3784-KR is absolute amazing. The cost is $530

Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K Quad-Core Desktop Processor 3.5 GHZ 8 MB Cache BX80646I74770K. $300

Hard Drive: Seagate Desktop HDD 4 TB SATA 6Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive ST4000DM000. $160

Solid State Drive: Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 1TB 2.5-Inch SATA III Single Unit Version Internal Solid State Drive MZ-7TE1T0BW. $546

Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10). $149

Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 1000G2 1000W ATX12V/EPS12V 80Plus Gold Power Supply 120-G2-1000-XR. $180

Water Cooler: Cooler Master Seidon 240M - PC CPU Liquid Water Cooling System, All-In-One Kit with 240mm Radiator and 2 Fans. $99

Card Reader: StarTech.com 3.5-Inch Front Bay 22-In-1 USB 2.0 Internal Multi Media Memory Card Reader with Simultaneous Access - Black (35FCREADBK3). $20

Optic Drive: Asus 24x DVD-RW Serial-ATA Internal OEM Optical Drive DRW-24B1ST (Black). $22

Thermal Compound: Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound. $8

Wifi Card: TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter,2.4GHz 450Mbps/5Ghz 450Mbps, Include Low-profile Bracket. $43

Software: Window 7 home premium. $89

Case: Corsair Carbide Series White 500R Mid Tower Computer Case (CC-9011013-WW). $110

Monitor: ASUS VG Series VG278HE 27-Inch Screen LED-lit LCD Monitor. $380

Mother board: ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard. $155. Will this motherboard be able to run the graphic's card, and other component that i had list above?

Headset: ASTRO Gaming Neon Color Series A40 Headset Kit (Orange). $150

Mouse: SteelSeries Sensei Laser Gaming Mouse Raw Edition (Heat Orange). $59

Keyboard: Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown (CH-9000050-NA). $120

Mounting Kit. StarTech 3.5-Inch to 5.25-Inch Floppy Mounting Kit Bracket (Black Plastic). $7

Mouse Mat: SteelSeries QcK Gaming Mouse Pad (Heat Orange). $13. Not really important but i thought i'll just put it in there anyway.


That is my complete list. After reading all of it I would really appreciate if you guys could tell me if the final product would work smoothly, no overheating, or unbalance. If there is, what can i do to fix this list. Please leave your feedback and tips on how to make this list cheaper for the same performance. Thank You!

First thing i notice is you picked an AMD mother board and an Intel CPU. Those are incompatible. You'll have to change one or the other.

Is this only for gaming? This build could be way cheaper, half of what you currently have. If you tell me a color scheme you would like, I'd be happy to put something together :)

Yes. The PC that i'm going to build is going to focus on mainly gaming. I'm thankful for you considering building me a PC. But i would need more information like the parts you will use and how much it'll cost before I would accept that offer.

If you want to build a high end gaming rig, Tom's hardware have a system builder marathon 4 times a year.
The high spec games pc budget is $2000 , so just copy the last one and you will have $1000 change.
I expect for a couple of hundred $'s, they will even do it for you (dont suit me. Tom's, I am saying he should propose it?). Anything more expensive than $2000
isnt going to perform better, it will just hoover up money.

That reminds me of the guy on the Gadget show in the U.K., who bought a twin Pent 4 games rig to be 'future proofed ' for £2000. Boy, did he catch a cold. It was obsolete in 4 years.

Oh. That's a funny misunderstanding lol. Sure, i'll gladly accept your help. My color of preference would be red. I'm looking for parts that would last me at least 10 years, but at the same time perform top notch for future game coming out. Sorry, if that sound too demanding. Please reply once you found the part you think is right.
