  2. nice name :)
    wait for the next gen processors and video cards if you're going to be spending that much money on a hardcore gaming machine.
  3. My computer build is listed in my sig and you can use it as a template for your gaming as well as everyday use since that's what I use it for.
    With your budget you can easily get these parts for your build.
    1. The cpu can be the i7-3930k or the i7-3960x but the extra $500 doesn't give you double the performance so the i7-3930k is your best bang for the buck , I easily clocked it to 4.5ghz and completely stable.
    2. The motherboard , Asus Rampage IV Extreme great board with a ton of options and features , overclocking was effortless.
    3. The ram, I put 16gb of 1866ghz Corsair Dominator but you can put any that you choose and I found that the 1866ghz works well.
    4.A SSD for the primary OS drive is the best option and the 256gb size is also a good choice as it gives you enough room for the OS and a few games without taking up too much of the total capacity. I don't put a lot on my computer but that's how I use it so I don't have a conventional drive , just three 256gb SSDs.
    That covers the meat of the build and the rest you can get what you prefer for parts.
  4. I'd recommend doing some general reading on system building so you at least have an idea what you're doing. I'm of the opinion that a $4,500 gaming computer is a waste of $2,000+.

    You're going to get essentially nothing for the last $2,500 in your budget. To compare, my system cost around half what your hypothetical $4,500 gaming machine will cost, and the two 7970s in my system are going to beat a single Titan any day of the week, despite the fact that the Titan costs much more than the two 7970s combined.

    The only reason to build a $4,500 gaming computer is so you can go around bragging about how expensive your gaming computer is.

    yes i agree...2000$+ is wasteful for gaming....there are currently NO rigs today that can run crysis 3 at ultra 1080p and sustain a useable framerate. even the titan reviews fps was dipping to 30fps at ultra

    2000$+ is reserved for server farms and music producing rigs.
  6. but if you must a have the best...and a titan...here you go:
