Build a $1000 computer, then in 2 years build another $1000. Can play all games on max for 4 straight years. You won't be able to play on max with $2000 now.

That is all.

Hey there, Thoughts:

Make sure you have really good cooling on the GPUs. They are going to get hot. Might even be worth considering something custom on a build this expensive. You picked the external blower kind, right?

With this kind of budget and power I would consider getting a 27" monitor that goes above 1080p. Within 4 years mainstream PCs will be following Apple into retina display territory, and your GPUs are certainly capable of handling it now.

Edit: Also, 680s in SLI are massive overkill for basically everything. At least the higher resolution will help you challenge them a little.

@butremor W8 I read that article when it released and driver issues like that are sure to be fixed soon in the next few patches.

Agree. This is totally your call. No tech savvy person is going to have problems they cant fix.
