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.
