Looking forward to building a Gaming PC

Im looking to build a computer that will run just about any game at a minimum of 60 fps on max settings.

Not worrying about the price at the moment.

I do plan on multitasking.

  1. You really have to give us a budget, you could then change it to get higher-end parts or lower the cost. And at what resolution will you be gaming?
  2. budget is usually the biggest factor of how good your rig will be.
  3. what are you going to play

    online or off online games
    i might get some Ideas of how this is not true but
    online games and MP online will be a little slow even if the computer is the fastest the other players have a slower computer, slower internet and some slower servers.
  4. Only servers (from the things you listed) could affect your gameplay in multiplayer games, and this would only affect latency, not framerates.

    For $1000, or even less you could max out all games at that resolution. I suggest getting a monitor in your $2000 budget.
    It's a really nice upgrade.
    Oh, and do you plan on overclocking?
