Best Priced Gaming System Build (2014) with no Overclocking

Hello,

I'm currently looking into buying individual parts to build the best gaming PC (that will run all current games on 3 1080p monitors) and hopefully run future games for a few years. I do not want to spend more than $1500. I also am trying not to OC. I am not 100% opposed to it, but I want to get as much out of stock settings as possible.

Can someone please tell me if this build will accomplish everything that I need? Would you recommend any changes? Again, this computer will be used for gaming and everyday use. No video editing, etc. Lastly, I noticed I can get a prebuilt computer with pretty much the same specs from ibuypower or cyberpower. In that case, I won't have to buy all the parts from different sites and assemble it myself; but, I want to know, is that the wise thing to do? I've never tried a prebuilt system and am a little gun-shy.

Thank you!

  1. The setup you have is fine, maybe if your buying new, you should go for a haswell cpu. If you are not overclocking you should go for a cpu without the K, the K versions have an unlocked multiplier which is easily overclocked

    My only concern with that is the 2GB 770. Is that enough to run a 3 monitor setup with decent performance? I know in my build I've got the 3570k and saying I don't want to OC, but I feel the small price jump is warranted in the event i ever do want to OC.

    And lastly, I should have mentioned this before, but I really want a 256gb SSD if possible. I had an SSD before (got rid of that machine), recently started using a budget gaming PC with a HDD and I can't do it. I have other HDDs lying around for storage since the 256GB won't really cut it for all my games.
  3. I think the GTX 780 is selling for a good price and is worth the jump, the GTX 780 is much faster than the GTX770. Your specs look amazing for the price:)

    When you are running 3 monitors, you will find yourself running out of GDDR5 ram pretty quick with only 2GB.
    I would recommend this, as it is currently the best for 3 monitors.
