Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Cyberpowerpc.com

Additional Comments: I am looking at making a real nice machine to last me years. I have been messing around on the internet the last few weeks looking at what I would like to put together in my next computer. I have not built one by hand yet and need to make sure the hardware I selected will work well together, and that I cover all the basic needs of a computer (ie., Wifi enabled, HDMI output, power will be enough, enough room for cooling, ect..) Unless there is something that will drastically cut costs while keeping the same about of power, I do not think I am too interested in changing much. However, if there is a huge flaw in this build, please let me know. But as far as it seems to me, this is a build that will fit my needs. If I left out any information that is vital, I am sorry. Just let me know and I shall try to answer.

if you are wanting a reliable workhorse then custom build is best,it is easy and you can find a bunch of step by step guides to build your rig.you can build a cheaper and more powerful rig.here's my suggestion for $2100-

total-$1853.
this rig is more 'futureproof' and you can afford it ;) 
a single 680 can max out aolmost any game at 1080p with smooth framerates.
custom>prebuilt.

Frozonic - Your post is hard to understand at best. Also, You give no reason for any of your opinions. Therefore, I shall not even give it the time of day. I dont like making choices based on peoples opinions instead of facts.

Also, considering that I said that I was kind of set on the items I picked out in my build...I am wondering why people are telling me entirely different hardware. I do not care to pay more for a prebuilt, since it comes with a warranty (home made ones dont). The money is not a problem. I am wondering if the Rig that I put together will do its job well. So if I could get someone to give me their opinion on that, instead of totally remaking the build (which seems to happen too much on here), then I would just be so happy.

Thanks for trying anyway.

Well, if you're just wanting a rubber stamp "Approved" then I would say you've picked out very nice build and I can't see anything coming in gaming in the next few years that your build couldn't handle except the odd game like Metro 2033 which is poorly optimized imo. What the nextgen of consoles may bring graphics wise probably won't bump up the requirements enough to tax your build but that's just speculation on my part.

Thank you very much Desert Eagle. I was just wanting to make sure that I didnt pick a build that was bottle-necking myself really bad somewhere. I was just wanting to make a computer that would handle games for a few years. I am glad you agree.

as i said earlier,a custom built is better because you use every quality part,it's cheaper and long lasting then a prebuilt.
