No Holds Barred, $5k gaming system. Help build! Tags: Gaming Monitors Build Systems Last response: August 5, 2013 8:11 PM in Systems Share ddaigle August 4, 2013 9:26:10 AM So I've built quite a few gaming systems over the past 10 years or so. My last build for me personally was about 2 years ago. I haven't kept up with anything since then and would like the opinions of the community who are much more up to date on the new stuff available. The budget is $5k. Monitor suggestions are welcome also, multiple monitor setup preferred.
