And that is everything, case psu gpu mobo etc. Want the most future proof system there is, and components I can swap over to a broadwell setup down the road. Everything needs to be in stock at Frys. Can go a little bit over a grand if needed. Want a unlocked bios and overclocking capability, full or mid size tower with routing and easy access... I've been out of the game too long I don't know what's out there.

Thanks... What's the bang for the buck maxwell gpu right now that can handle most things thrown at it, and what's the best bang for the buck 32gb capable lga1150 mobo that's Uefi? Thanks for that link it's helpful

you have to wait for the maxwell (800 series) GPU . only 750 an 750ti available . entry level GPUs . . this series is expected to expand in late 2014 or in 2015 . . and the board i listed in the list supports 32 GB . UEFI support as well

On my phone didn't mean to select yours as an answer, the link you sent me has no parts selected when you go to it. Which 7 series gpu would you recommend that could max out most things thrown at it? I found a 4770k for $275
