Need help. Building $2500 gaming PC

Hello there, I am building a gaming PC and need help with finding the right components.
To answer any questions that might be asked:-
"When are you building this pc"- I am building it around June/July

"What is this PC used for?"-it will mostly be used for gaming

"What do you have already?"- I don't have anything yet

"Will you overclock?"- No

"Do you need peripherals like keyboard, monitor etc..."- yes, I want that to be included in $2500.

Thanks. Any help will be appreciated.

  1. Spend most of your money on the graphics card(s). (At least that's my opinion)
  2. Don't be outrageous, though.

    For nVidia, the GTX 780 Ti is pretty much the top-of-the-line in gaming.

    You could also buy a regular non-Ti GTX 780.

    Or mabey a couple of 760's.

    Ok thanks
  6. There are other cards too, and there are AMD cards. I don't know a whole lot about them, though.

    ==2395 dollars.

    100% White and Black theme except for the gold teeth on the motherboard ;)

    CPU: Intel i5 4670K
    GPU: GTX 780 Ti
    Motherboard:
    Case: Fractal R4
    HDD 1TB
    SSD 250GB
    Keyboard Mechanical
    Mouse Logitech
    Monitor 120hz 1080p BenQ
    16GB RAM 1600Mhz
    750W Active PFC PSU

    4K resolution was out of budget, but 1080p at 120hz is pretty great if your system can handle it (which this can.)
    Make sure you dont overpay for an i7, they generally don't outperform the 4670K in games.

    Other than that, yeah I would kill for this PC. :)

    Nice, FloppyNacho.

    I have a 256GB Samsung Pro. Love it.

    Also, Cooler Master HAF series is great for airflow. (HAF = High Air Flow) They are a little on the big side, though. I think the HAF 922 is the smallest (still a mid-tower).

    Thanks, I've been doing a lot of emailing and searching around and you are the first person to give me a straight, easy answer. :)

    Hi, I have used your PC configuration but had to replace a few things with others as I am buying from amazon.
    What do you think?
