I now have three builds and I'm not sure which one to choose. I can afford to buy the $2000 but it is pushing my budget. I wanna know if it's worth the exra $ for that much better of a gaming PC today.
First two are modifed pre-built PCs from NCIX.com and the third one is a custom build with newegg.

performs the same or even better than both of the 3 rigs. i left some space for you to buy your peripherals
Well I save roughly $100 with that site with the newegg build. But won't the shipping be expensive I buy every part from every seperate site that sells cheapest? Also once my build is done, it switches all the prices to US sites instead of Canadian sites. I don't want to order from those because it will only make me waste more money.
