I want my first build to be the end all solution for my gaming/rendering/school needs and to last for years but have upgrade ability. I want name brand parts with good warranties. Things like xsplit, wirecast, battlefield 4, titanfall, sony vegas, photoshop, dreamweaver, and other adobe stuff, and other potentially high power intensive programs/games and lots of multitasking. I want to run duel monitors. I want it to be able to stream and play games at the same time. I want a great case. Maybe the NZXT 410 Phantom?

I do not want any amd, radeon.
I need 16 gigs of ram.
I prefer fan cooling and probably more than usual gets very hot in my room, water cooling scares me.
I want to be able to overclock.
I live in the U.S.
I need a blu ray reader/writer, the strongest wireless card, and I want to put it in a mid tower if possible.
I want a 4770k, I want to learn and eventually overclock.
I need an ssd.
I live in the U.S.

Thanks.

This isnt exactly a place to have smart technologically inclined people build a computer for you. Do some research. maybe use www.pcpartpicker.com . Then if you have any questions about specific components or parts. Then you should come here to ask for help. Not trying to be that guy or anything but you arent exactly asking for help here. you're asking someone else to do the work for you

The NZXT 410 is a great case, not to my tastes but does the job quite well.

Did you have any other questions?

Well I have a build in mind, but I wanted to see what other could put together...I see people asking about builds here all the time. Sorry if my question is inappropriate. I have been doing "research" for 6 months+ but now push has come to shove (school) and I am in dire need of having a sure fire build asap.

Start with one of these, and modify the specific parts as needed:

Could've asked nicely...

This is UK prices so it needs converting. Over budget but you are asking for far too much with that budget... expain it to $2.5k and you might be ok.

I apologize if I came across rudely. Thanks for the recommendation and feedback. I will take it into consideration. This build will honestly be mostly for pc gaming/streaming/rendering, but not all necessarily at the same time.

I am lazy too. Post your thoughts, and we can go from there.

Do not plan on a ultimate or future proof solution. Products change, and nothing you can build today will be significantly upgradeable within a few years. Possibly graphics.
Best to buy what you need today. Or at least with a upgrade horizon of 6 months.

Much will depend on your monitor plans.
If you will be using one monitor, that is one thing.
If you plan on gaming with triple monitors, or a 4k monitor, then a lot of graphics power needs to be planned for.

I wasnt exactly trying to be harsh in any way. I'm just saying that if you've been doing research for about six or more months then you could include a bit more of what you've researched instead of just listing what you want in a part. You didnt really put any kind of technical specs for anything you wanted. you just put what you wanted to be able to run. Just saying a bit more to go on would have been nice. sorry if I sounded a bit mean.

I want to use one monitor to game but have a second hooked for things like seeing my music or interacting with viewers on twitch. I just want 1080P 60fps on the latest games here is what my build looks like. http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/

You do realize that the link you posted just goes to your partlist on your computer right? you cant just copy and paste from the browser window. Click save as in the top left part of that page. save the build, then go to saved lists at the far top right corner, then get the specific link to your partlist.

I apologize, here it is. I am mostly unsure about mobo and cooling. The second monitor I am going to be using is an old westinghouse by the way. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Wingzero01/saved/3x7j

Just saying you dont have to have that expensive of parts. there are cheaper alternatives to those parts that would run almost the same. I don't have any solid examples off the top of my head. but if money becomes an issue remember that you dont have to have quite as expensive parts.
