  1. Looks like you didn't do your homework before posting. We don't even know what hardware and specs you currently have. What is the purpose of your computer? Is it for gaming? Just to watch movie? Edit pictures? Graphics is a vague term you know...

    Maybe you should read this first:

  2. What's the primary use of the system?

    Graphics production requirements are different than gaming requirements.

    What display resolution will you be using?

    If you already have a display, please list its brand and model number.
  5. Could you please list your full system specs please?

  8. So you already got a GTX-780? What's your current monitor then?

    I'm not sure I understand your original question, do you already have the parts and the PC running? Or are you looking to build a new PC?

    See. Your original post didn't mention that. If you've been clearer from the start I wouldn't have to ask you question after question.
