No need to reach $2000 when this system can do it for less. Not sure why DeadGraphics had Crossfire and no SSD.
CPU: i7 and overclock it.
Cooler: Excellent quality
Mobo: just great one
SSD: a must

Envy14tpe's build, but with the 780 Ti. It's 140 dollars more, but i feel like it's worth it, especially with your budget. Performance increase is significant.

http://anandtech.com/bench/product/1036?vs=1072


But he is gaming on a 1920x1080 monitor. So I would not recommend the 780ti. If it was 1440p then yes I would say get the 780ti.

@rdfbienste. The first edit he had Crossfire and no SSD. Since then he has edited the post twice.

Fair enough.. i looked it up and the 780 is clearly enough to run games on ultra 60fps. unless he doesn't want to upgrade his PC in the next 4 years, then the Ti would be worth it. I could also imagine the 780 won't be enough to ultra GTA 5 with some mods.

@rdfbienste. Those choices and prices are really good. Also, I chose a quiet CPU cooler and an extra quiet case fan for the case to ensure this system has good airflow without you having to listen to your system. Many people overlook noise and buy crappy fans. This build doesn't do that. Enjoy.
