I want the best build possible for gaming for 2.6k. Does it all fit? Is it good? Feedback please
Total (Win8): $1882
Well under budget and will play games at max settings and edit/render videos very nicely.
If you really want to spend more money, dont bother with the main components, they are already plenty for your needs and to get stronger hardware will be redundant.
Places I can see you sinking money into and having a good effect is a bigger SSD, another monitor (maybe two more, video editing across multiple monitors is so much better, believe me) or even a custom watercooling kit. If you were willing to go over-budget, you could get three monitors and another HD7970 and get yourself a really good Eyefinity setup.
120hz monitors are amazing dont listen to that statement. Agree with him on the amd statement though, 7950 or 7970 are a better buy per performance to their Nvidia counterpart right now with amds new drivers out.
