I'm building my own pc an I'm looking for quality graphics in my gaming however Im torn between the 560ti and the 570 for my graphics card and the i5 or the i7 for my processor. Is it worth spending the extra dollars in the long run?
Your budget is large you shouldn't be considering 560ti or 570 you should be looking at top end kit.
This following list of parts will max out any game currently around and likely for a while to come. I know you said no to Overclcoking but I have included a CPU that can be overclocked so if you decide to at a later date the option is there.
Total $1647.90 (theres about $90 you can claw back in rebates too)
As I said that will max out basically anything you want for a while to come. There's a large SSD for fast load times and a huge HDD for file storage. The ability to OC in the future is there. If your looking for a monitor, speakers and keyboard etc there's room left in the budget. The case is a personal taste thing the one I listed is just an example.
