Kept it under $1,100, but it's worth it in my opinion. Gets you an SSD for the OS and programs, and the 770, which will max everything and is about perfect for 1080p. Also has plenty of room to upgrade down the road if you want too lol

Switch the msi 770 to the evga 770 because evga has the coolest temps. Also I would change the case to the source 210 elite from nzxt but I just like it more because of personal preference

Don't be afraid to go used or refurbished, only with hard drives should thou fret. I kept my build under $550-600 and I am completely fine with it. It runs tribes ascend great.
