Help Gaming PC Build ~$2000

I play a great deal of Games from Minecraft to Crysis 2. So, there really is a wide spectrum to what I play. I am wanting to build my own PC and have it last me for a few years before truely having to start upgrading it. Any builds that are provided I thank you in advance for your time and efforts. :)

Approximate Purchase Date: One Week
Budget Range: $2000
System Usage: League of Legends, (PC gaming), Steam Games, Upcoming Games, Twitch Streaming
Are you buying a monitor: No
Parts to Upgrade: All new
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts:,
Location: Missouri, USA
Parts Preferences: Intel, Corsair
Overclocking: Most likely No
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Mouse / Headphones / Monitor are not needed. Keyboard is, and I was leaning towards a G15.

    That's a nice budget to work with - there are a lot of overkill parts on here but I am a fan of getting what you want if you can:

    The G15 is a good keyboard, I would probably go test a couple at Microcenter or Best Buy to see what feels right. Large SSD + Large HDD is the best combination if you're media-hungry like most of us. I use a 3TB HDD in mine because I rip my blurays to file to put on a tablet for travel but it's not a need to have part. Might as well get a bluray drive so that you have that as an option down the road. I like the H110 because if you want to overclock it gives you lots of headroom and that 4770k can be a monster to overclock. You could also go with an Ivybridge Extreme processor and motherboard combination or wait for the Haswell Extreme series which they're going to be releasing this year. There aren't any games on the market that would require that much power but it's an option if you want to really go above and beyond. The 780ti will be able to keep you happy with your gaming experience for years to come and all those parts should fit in that case. 16GB is more than enough RAM but that motherboard will support another 16GB if you ever decide to get into virtualization or want to run a server for some reason.

    Nonetheless, that rig is a beast and can handle anything you want to throw at it.
  2. ^^^ that is a good build. The only thing I would change is getting a smaller psu. 850 is a lot for a single card and not enough for sli 780 ti's. You could probably save money getting a smaller one thats about 700w.
  3. I agree - 700-750 is more than sufficient, only went for the 850 in case you ever for some horrifying reason want to go SLI down the road. Better to not have to replace a part and throw away all that money.
  4. I really like the build. Of course as you stated earlier. The only thing I might change is the keyboard but that will be with a little more research hands on and online. Thanks for your help. And I think I will keep the 850, cause I thought about going back and adding eye candy later down the road.
