Hello, so I'm pretty new to pc gaming and what not but I have some cash so I kind of want to build a rig that can handle every damn game on the market on ultra setting for hopefully a few years. So my plan was to build a PC around two EVGA 04G-P4-3776-KR GeForce GTX 770 4GB SLI
In theory 8 Gb of graphic power should be pretty good right? Anyways, each card goes for around 525.99 on Newegg and I was wondering if any of you had any recommended builds or perhaps a better idea for a gaming rig. I get paid $1000 a week so my plan was to buy the expensive parts one at a time and build around it, I got a ps4 keep my attention till the build is complete. Anyways, I'd rather keep the budget to around $2500-3000. Thanks.

Oh yeah, I have a 50" 1080p for a monitor so don't add that and I don't really care about bluray disk drives.

Edit - I also have a copy of Windows 7

Ok. Another PSU then for a SLI-ready build. You could get another GTX780 for your three monitor set up in the future. Good luck!
