Can I ask why you want to spend $3000 on a computer? It seems quite excessive and you will experience serious diminishing returns after the $1000 mark. $1500 will get you a computer than will play anything you can throw at it with ease and you'll still have half your budget to spend on something else
I didn't mean to imply that I wanted to spend $3000 no matter what, I just wanted to put the ammount of money I have to work with. By all means if you can give me the specs to a build that is great for gaming for cheap then do so.
-Case is excellently reviewed.....white model a few more $
-PSU gets 9.5 jonnyguru performance rating, go to HX850 if ya want a 10.0 rated model
-MoBo - probably most popular combo recommended.....easy to OC and guides for doing so all over.
-Cooler - is one of the best made and it's ridiculously prced for its performance.
-TIM - Nothing beats it
-RAM - low profile and reliable
-GFX - Can handle as much as 30% overclock w/ 7 phase VRM and big cooler
-SSD - Tier 3 (highest among 120/128GB units) model on THG heirachy
-Monitor - 120 Hz
awesome high-end case.
Fast enough HDD
7970 crossfire can easily handle eyefinity with any game.
PSU is highly recommended and quality.80+ GOLD.
Low profile 8GB RAM eliminates clearance issues.
high quality mobo with upgrades.
use those quiet and high performance fans in your heatsink and gpu duct of HAF X to keep temps down of your CFX setup.
this is a very high quality heatsink.equip it with those two cougar fans and you are good to go above 4Ghz.main benefit is that it isn't ridiculously huge!
lightning fast SSD for OS and games.
this is going to be an epic build.
