PC Build for $2000 - 2200? (GTX 780 Ti 3GB) (i7) 2014 w/ Monitor (ALSO IN BUILD)

Hi guys, I am RenzoRaptor you can call me Renzo or Raptor. I am new here to the forum and I

would like to ask if you may help me make a parts list for build (CPU ONLY) for $2000. It should

have a GTX 780 Ti and an i7 processor. It should also last for a last for about 3 years minimum.

Thanks a lot for anyone that helps! :)

  3. Better cooler
    Lower latency is generally a better point than higher frequency for gaming.
    Cheaper but similar performance motherboard
    More reliable HDD
    Better GPU
    Better fitting PSU for single GPU
    Windows 7 over 8 any day.
    oh... and cheaper.

  6. When it comes to Ram G.Skill is the best, I don't think PNY will be any use. Also when it comes to GPU in Nvidia EVGA is the best.

    Both are incorrect statements. RAM doesn't favor any brand but the components used in their production and though EVGA has the best support/warranty, their cards do not outperform every other brand on the market. ASUS, MSI, and Gigabyte are all great options as well.

    ASUS uses better components than the EVGA that you speak of. The ASUS has a custom PCB, better cooler, and better VRM cooling.
  10. When it comes to performance EVGA outplays Asus, please check what ever way possible and let me know if Asus performs better. Thanks !

  12. Guys for the build I don't need an OS I already have Win 7 Ultimate :)
  13. Because why not

    Why a GTX Titan black? Not a GTX 780 Ti?

    idk I was just showing that it was an option. It's a little better than the 780ti overall but it's probably not worth the extra $300 if gaming is the only concern. If you are going to be doing heavy video editing maybe. If it's just for gaming I would get the 780ti for sure.
  17. Another option.

  20. Eh all of these parts on all of the builds in here are crazy overkill for a single 1080p monitor :/

    I would get at LEAST 1440p if not 3 cheaper 1080ps
  21. Crazy overkill just means it will last longer. :p
  22. haha true
