3000 dollars is overkill

i5 3570k and z77-v pro will be more than enough for gaming

CPu cooler will be a phanteks heatsink.

R4 case is my personal recommendation

8gb of ram is more than enough

the xfx xxx 750w will provide the power perfectly. its enough for 2 7970s

get 2 of these 7970s

dvd drive

hard drive



price match to ncix


price match this at ncix

monitors. have you tried out triple monitors first of all? have you played at least 60 mins of it and decided that it is a good idea?

anyways monitors it is. i personally use this one.

CPU: i5-3570k
CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212+, or EVO, or above if wanted
Motherboard: Any of the recommended Z77 motherboards
RAM: Any 2 x 4GB RAM while keeping my notes (DDR3-1600, 1.5v)
Graphics: Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition
Power Supply: PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK III 600W or above if wanted
SSD: Any of the 256GB (or bigger) performance-based SSDs
Hard Drive: 1TB or above if wanted
DVD Drive: Cheap DVD Burner
Case: CoolerMaster Storm Enforcer or above

Example Build:

you can probably get a 16GB of ram instead of 8GB since your going 3 monitors
DONT GET AN HDD! GET AN SSD! there are big diffrence between them so dont mix
the 7970 should be able to run anything at a good FPS QUALITY although you can get x2 7970's for a preformance push other than that this build is fine :)

dude, CPU ram does nothing to increase system gaming performance
