Hey people of Toms Hardware,

I am looking to build a new PC, I want to buy the best parts possible to start with so I do not have to upgrade as quickly, I will still upgrade it, but not for a while after I built it preferably anyway, I used the template provided in the sticky, so take a look below for the specs I have picked already and what the PC will be for. Thanks in advance.

You may want to check out a Radeon 79xx card for better GPU processing power.

A 750W PSU would be fine for SLI/xFire.

Other than that, great choices. Happy building! :)
