He doesn't need a 2 TB hdd. Also, the two 770s are overkill. One 780 would have been enough. Also, 16 gigs is overkill. He will only need 8 gigs and he can upgrade later

Yeah then my build will work. And without the peripherals and an extra gpu, it would be the same price but more gpu performance and it will last longer.

IMHO, a $2000 budget having a 120GB SSD is a bit weak. Same goes for a "small" 1TB drive. The GTX 770 provides a much better ratio for price / performance, and it would not be overkill at all. The only reason to go with the 4GB R9 GPUs is if you were gaming on multiple monitors at 2560x1440 or higher resolution. 16GB of memory could be reduced, but the OP looking for "last as long as possible" could have them adding it now (and keep the option to add more later). To each their own though... The OP would likely be happy with any of the parts listed in this thread.

Let him choose then. I was trying to stay within his budget. My build came in at $1700 with peripherals and yours came at $1900 with no peripherals. 2 r9 290s will last longer than two 770s. This is because of AMDs build quality. I'm not calling Nvidia bad or anything, i'm just saying that they're overpriced for the amount that they cost. A r9 290 would have a better price to performance ratio than a 780. Al 280X will have one comparable to the 770
