I'm planning on building a new PC rig and I'm going to go all out on it. Budget is unlimited as far as I'm concerned right now. I'll use it mostly for gaming but sometimes for schoolwork and watching movies. I prefer to stick with Nvidia and Intel components if possible but I'm willing to consider AMD as well, especially if it cuts costs. Like I said in the title, I would like to play all current games at ultra, 1080p at 60fps+ and same goes for 4K. Obviously the components will vary in price if I decide on using a 1080p or 4K monitor.

For 4k , you will at least need R9 295x 2 card or titan z. That r9 is for about $1600-$1800 and titan z is at $3,000.

Looks like I'll be paying quite a bit for GPU's lol. Yes, I would like to play on ultra at 4K resolution. Your build looks good i7Baby, I'll probably end up purchasing a lot of those components. Does anyone have any suggestions for a PC build for 1080p, 60 fps+, and on ultra? I'd like to play all games on ultra settings with a fps at around 60 or higher, depends on the game I suppose. That includes games not yet released such as Shadow of Mordor, Assassin's Creed Unity, Dragon Age Inquisition, The Witcher 3, and Batman: Arkham Knight.

this one will be fine, you can change the gpu to fit into your price tag, a 780 or above will run ultra or a r9 280x or above also

Cool, do you think it would be worth it to go for a i7 (like the 4770k or 4970k) instead of the i5? Or will I not see much of a difference in performance in games.

No, you don't need a i7 unless you want to stream or render vids, only a 1-5fps increase really

Oh I see, just wanted to make sure there won't be any bottlenecking for quite some time. Also, would you advise getting the 780 3GB, 780 6GB, 780Ti 3GB, or just wait for the 800 series GPU's that Nvidia may be releasing soon?

For just 1080p, any of those cards will do

1. you want to save money yet play ultra and don't want to get more monitors or play at a higher res - 780 3gb
2. Youwant to save money, get ultra but plan on getting more monitors or playing higher res - 780 6gb
3. You want the best out there, money doesn't matter, you want 100fps in all games ultra - 780 ti
4. You are patient and want to save money - 800 series

Okay thanks legend, that puts it in perspective for me. I think I can eliminate the 780 3GB since the the 780 6GB is only about $80 more expensive. I'm not really concerned about price, just looking for the best performance. I'm going to wait a couple days and see what Nvidia decides to do regarding the 800 series, they're supposed to be having press conferences at the moment so they're probably getting pretty close to releasing the cards. I'd like to see how the 800 series cards compare to 780 6GB and 780Ti 3GB cards before I make any decisions.

Wow that's actually a really good price for that system build, thanks! I'd probably go with something similar but go all out on a couple of the components like the GPU where I'll probably go for the 780Ti 3 GB or the rumored 880. Also, I'm probably going to go for at least 2-way SLI but most likely 3 or 4 so that's going to up the bill by quite a lot.

I think performance of SLI and crossfire drops off after 2. It's really not worth the money for a 3rd or 4th card. I think 2 r9 290x is prob best price/performance for 4k atm. r9 295x2 is a little better than 2 r9 290x but not sure if it is worth the extra $500.

Now if they would get HDMI 2.0 and DP1.3 we could enjoy 4k gaming lol. DP1.2 sux

It really depends on the games whether or not they support 3-way or 4-way SLI. Most games, I believe, don't support 4-way SLI or Crossfire but there are many that support 3-way, just not all games do. I haven't exactly settled on a GPU yet so I'm looking for options and I'll probably have them in SLI (or Crossfire if go with AMD).

Yea I was thinking of building a 4k setup but I'm waiting on video cards with hdmi 2.0 so I can use them on TV sets. Plus 4k 60hz pushes displayport to it's limits right now and a lot of monitors flicker when using 4k 60hz.

The new 800 series cards from Nvidia will hopefully include HDMI 2.0.

Hey check this build I have built it 1 month ago its upgradeable so in future u can upgrade ur CPU and GPU and add more ram u can change the case or anything else but CPU, GPU and Motherboard stay the same if u use an SSD u will see the greatest speed increases by one part u can use 120GB SSD I am currently using 120GB SSD on PC one of its ram is not working any more and I have smooth experience with 2GB ram on it because of SSD.

Unlimited budget, 4k 60+FPS, you say? Try this: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Tryptophan/saved/Pb3scf . Its kinda pricey, but it's well equipped for the VRAM 4k requires, and the rest of the hardware is nearly invincible as well. This will last you so long, it's practically ridiculous, and you'll never need to build another PC for easily 4 years. If you get bored, make a watercooling loop with radiators everywhere and OC everything as high as you can. By the way, you can change or leave out the peripherals as you desire. They're not necessary for the build, but if you want some quality parts, go for those.

why do you have the RAM so low, the budget is unlimited. Same with the SSD storage. I like to run different games and surely don't want to have to install each one. I recommend at least 1 Tb of SSD with 4 Tb of HHD. I have always used 64 Gb RAM, may be overkill, but I surely don't have memory problems. Also, why not 4 x 980's or 2 x titan z. I'm personally leaning toward the 2 x titan z right now. If the 980's come out with 8Gb soon, I may go with them.
