Hey guys,

I'm looking to spend $2000 on a new gaming computer. Could anyone please recommend the best build for this price range? I am willing to spend up to $2300 if needed. Just want the best set up possible for gaming at this price.

Thanks.

You won't benefit from a 3930K on a gaming rig, and how can you be using that PC when that CPU won't work with that motherboard? :heink: 

You also don't need a BD-R burner as the playback software costs an extra $100 a license, and I wouldn't bother with the Corsair Hydro coolers.

Here's what I would suggest on $2K:

The PC baniket99 listed is worth quite a lot more than two grand, so it's way out of your budget.
But i have to agree it's a real beast.

I did however make a PC that will outperform it and fit into the 2K budget.
