I had a total budget of 2k but decided to save 500$ to buy an xbox 1 later for Halo as ive ben a longtime console player converting to Pc but cannot live without playing Halo,All multiplatform Games Will be played on my built Pc
I need a stable 60+ FPS with max details with and not going above 1080p
Games like Battlefield 4,Metro,Titanfall,Destiny,Dying Light,The Witcher 3
I previously decided to go with GTX 780 Ti
Im not looking to SLI
Im not going to overclock
I dont need a Screen as i have a good one
No need for an os i already have win 8.1
Also i have Mouse and keyboard and speakers
I will get an ssd later
Im Thinking of
MSI NVIDIA N770 TF 2GD5/OC 2 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon R9 280X VAPOR-XOC 3 GB DDR5 Graphics Card

Any Recommendations in my build are welcome
I wanna be future proof thats why i went with the i7 not the i5
i plan on keeping my pc on most of the time so i need a durable card

GTX 780 http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-video-card-gtx780dc2o... ranges from 499 to 545 dollars. My rig is similar to yours (with the difference that i have a 3570k cpu) and i can max out all games, from BF4 to Crysis 3 (note: on Crysis 3 with low AA).

Your budget is good and since you don't want 780ti, go for the 780.

If you are into benchmarks check mine, http://www.3dmark.com/fs/1748212, you can check the whole setup and see for your self, also with your setup you should score a bit higher than me, probably 10k.

Agreed ^ ..... the better factory overclocked cards with custom PCBs / and beefed up VRMs can easily do 20% OC on air....25% or more on water...... not the fastest card outta the box ..... but will top anything out there when OC'd "to the wall" , except of course the Ti.
