so im looking to buy a gaming PC that can basically run all current and up coming games on high or maybe even ultra, and run smoothly of course. I'm okay with spending money but of course like everyone here i would like to keep it at as low as possible, while reaching the goal of gameplay i want. So anyway... i have messed around and came up with this setup... let me know if its good or shit (i would like to know what the setup could run though)

CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-4690K 3.5 GHz 6MB Intel Smart Cache LGA1150
HDD: 1TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 32MB Cache 7200RPM HDD (Single Drive)
MEMORY: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1866MHz Dual Channel Memory (ADATA XPG V2)
MOTHERBOARD: ASUS Z97-P ATX w/ GbLAN, 2 PCIe x16, 2 PCIe x1, 2 PCI, 4x SATA 6Gb/s (Pro OC Certified)
SOUND: HIGH DEFINITION ON-BOARD 7.1 AUDIO
VIDEO: EVGA FTW Edition NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750Ti 2GB GDDR5 PCIe 3.0 x16 Video Card [-5] (Single Card)

If you want to be able to run games smoothly on high or ultra (which Im guessing means 60+FPS) you'll need somethimg more like a 780ti or R9 290x (possibly dual GPUs if you're talking Star Citizen and other graphically heavy games to come in the future. I'm assuming you'll be gaming at 1080p and using one monitor as well. Upgrading to an i7 may also help future proof your build. However, this would cost much more than your current build. Your current build could probably run any game at 60fps at low-med settings at 1080p. If 30fps is ok, you could probably run any game on high settings.

If you have a good setup that could run current and next gen games on ultra, i would love to see them. My friend was throwing some ideas around as to how much everything would cost for a PC that could play games on high or ultra and for everything... including the monitor (keyboard isnt that big deal for me haha) he said around 2000. thats round up and down for the items too

Pretty much everything, I max out every game I have right now with a 770 and the rig in my sig with the exception of total war rome 2, but I feel that's understandable when I'm having 20,000 man battles

I have a 770 myself, and I can run any game maxed out and still stay above 30fps on average. It's a pretty solid card. The GTX 880 is SUPPOSEDLY coming out in September, which is rumored to have a performance level between the 780 and 780ti, with a price tag of $400. If you can wait an extra month, I think that would be a great card! However, these are still just rumors, and nothing has been confirmed yet.

But if you can't wait, I think the 770 is definitely worth the upgrade from the 750ti :)
