  2. $5000 is too much to spend reasonably today.

    Budget $1000 or so for a 30" monitor; it will last you for a long time.

    Next take $2000 and invest it for a couple of years. Plan on using it to replace or upgrade your build.

    The remaining $2000 can build you a top of the line gaming machine for today.

    Base it on a 2600K, sli GTX570 or GTX580, 8gb of ram, a SSD for the OS and apps , a Quality 900w psu,

    Buy a glorious looking case, it will last you for several builds. Check out the lian li cases.
  3. Good advice I think I'll do that.
  4. Is this in Irish Dollars?
  5. No American.
