Need Advice for "Future Proof" PC Build

Closing on my house in two weeks, and I hope to use the windfall to build a future proof pc

My intended use for the system is running simultaneous virtual machines, playing games on ultra settings, and doing some work in Maya. I need to keep the price around 14k and the monitor I will be using is a Dell U3011 30".

  5. Thanks yall, I'll have to think about maybe building two systems at half the cost and going with a v9800 in one and a 690 in the other.
  6. I know this is solved, but wouldn't it be better to spend 1500$-2000$ on a pc and keep the rest for future upgrades, I mean you don't know if you will ever need that 14,000$, even if you are full of money my recommendation would be to build a nice pc and keep the money for upgrades, but it's up to you.
  7. a redo for the gaming rig. x79 is not needed

  8. you dont need a 690. you cant even benefit from the extra frames given your monitor most likely is 60hz.
