I have recently fallen in love with Pc gaming. I have decided to start building a Gaming pc. It will mostly be used for Hardcore gaming and recording at 1080p. And making videos. The only thing i havent been for sure on is the monitors.i need 2 1080p moniters with DVI and hdmi that are under $200 each.

some of the things make no sense in your build you could save a lot of $ by getting 4670k and 8GB of ram and 250GB ssd motherboard is complete overkill as well with all the savings you could upgrade your video card wich is the main part in a gaming rig and here is an example that would have actually higher performance in games and even save you $

well gtx 780 ti is the best you can get i guess it depends on what brand preference you have i usually go with evga as they have great customer support. Also Asus motherboards usually cost more then the rest but you can get $200 one dont need 300+ as they do have the best quality as far as motherboards go. You could do something like this if you dont plan to do some crazy above 4.4 ghz overclocks you dont really need the h100i noctua will be cheaper and probably 2-3 degrees higher temperature wich wont really make a difference.
