Hi! In september i will be buying a gaming computer and i want to prepare myself. Im thinking of getting a pc that can run most games at max (acceptable frame rates). I would like quiet, good looking fans and please use the fractal define r4 case. My budget is around 1500 and i already have a monitor in mind.

You should ask again in September a lot can change between now and then. Any list we give will most likely have many outdated parts and prices.

if the info is right I would wait for the newer z97 mb if your running one gpu and the newer brodwell cpu at the end of the year if the info is right. also was a news posting online yesterday that the newer maxwell gpu from nvidia are still not dropping do to issues with the 20mm fab from the foundry. the news posting said they may be held up till end of the year or next year.
