Building a gaming PC with $2000 budget???
Hi. Right now, i wan to spend around $2300 for a gaming PC. I got my own build but i just want to hear your opinions and compare to mine. My need is a PC that can handle every game on max setting without lagging, low FPS,etc,... With my budget, I really want to get a complete PC and at least 1 monitors 144hz ( i really want 2 monitors, 1 for gaming, the other for teamspeak, skype, web browser,etc.) Pls help me!!! Tell me your ultimate build with ~$2300!!!
Pretty simple really. Most things are in your budget. You can go all out and get 16gb of high quality ram such as corsair vengeance pro. Follow that up with an Intel i7 4770k, an msi mpower motherboard, 750w psu, and best of all a GTX 780. Much like my current build just w/ a gpu. Really not much you can't get thats reasonable in this price range.

This build will make out every game at 1080p, and will allow for overclocking as well as the possibility of adding another 780Ti in the future. You can definitely save money here and there, but these parts are only of the highest quality and will be future-proof in the sense that upgrading will be simple.
a 4670K with 2x770's and a 250GB SSD. maybe a 4770k if you got any left, just for bragging rights. if you don't want to deal with microstutters in an SLI build, a single 780ti for the time being. before you start; spending more than the cheapest 2x4GB DDR3-1866 CAS 9 ram isn't going to give you big results, not unless, again, you're aiming for bragging rights.
An example of a build I just threw together.
