Complete gaming desktop parts list -Help- Budget $1000 - $2000

I need a custom gaming computer worth $1000 to $2000 that is able to play Battlefield 4 on ultra at 60 fps or higher while recording on fraps.

Preferably i would like to stick to under $1500 but i can go all the way to $2000.

The parts have to include Operating system and Dvd drive. So pretty much all the parts i need to build a computer :) Wireless receiver is not necessary. I have a mouse and keyboard and a 1080p monitor.
I prefer Intel over Amd.

Thank you! And i am sorry about the thread spamming i'm new here and i wasn't sure how to delete a post. So if a mod is reading this. Could you so kindly delete all my other threads besides this one, thanks.

    Did you get the number of that freight train that rucked-over you ? :lol:

    I know you spec'ed Intel/nVidia, but you might want to consider an FX-6300, Asus M5A97 (not LE) and an R9 280X around $770 ....

    against the i5-4460, Asus H97 (4 DIMMs), GTX770 at $970.
  4. heres what i came up with:

    cpu: intel i5 4690k http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=2677308
    cpu cooler: cm hyper 212 evo http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=1008748
    mobo: msi z97 - g45 http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=2651025
    ram: 8gb kingston hyperx http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=1512606
    ssd: crucial m500 128gb http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=18960
    hdd: 1tb seagate barracuda http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=984878
    gpu: asus geforce 770 http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=1952152
    psu: seasonic 550W http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=1398458
    case: nzxt source 210 http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=913222
    dvd drive: asus http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=1810700

    the total comes out to be 1579.51

    it will give you ultra, and with a nvidia gpu you get shadowplay, which is alot better than fraps to record with. the build gives you lots of room to expand and the potential to overclock some. dont forget windows, which will add on to the parts price


    EDIT: of course i did all this then found out theres a new zealand pcpartpicker.....

    I prefer the Gtx 770, I've heard alot of great reviews on it.
  8. i chose the 770 because you said you record, and the nvidia cards come with shadowplay. shadowplay takes alot of the strain on the processor away when recording, and doesnt make your fps drop when recording (or if it does its like 5fps at max)

    This is actually the first time i've ever heard of shadowplay. So thank you once again!!
    Fraps is really buggy and has huge file sizes and reduces my fps by to much :L
