$2000 gaming pc

Hello, everyone!

My name is Justin, and this is my first post. i randomly came across schlagnath's question for his "$1000-2000 Gaming PC" and i thought this would be a good place to ask my what may be simple question to you guys, but what i have spent many hours reasearching up on, question!

First off, obviously i have saved up enough money to afford a $2000 gaming build and i am very excited about the project of building it! However i have a huge dilema, i have no idea which individual parts (up to date parts) will have the best performance for my budget. i believe i have got down which parts do what to your computer, but i honestly have no idea what the names symbolize to performance or anything like that, i'm completely clueless.

If anyone could send feedback on what's a good build and the links to the parts and if people could give feedback on those builds and review parts for me to use i would greatly appreciate it!

I am not worried about the monitor, keyboard, or mouse at this time, i am not including those in my $2000 budget, just the computer itself.

Thank you to anyone in advance that posts on this topic!
