How long do think this would run games on max settings for? Is there any down sides to this rig, or anything that could be better? It looks good

What resolutions are you planning on playing at? Because those cards are kinda overkill for 1080p and below.

Well, from what I understand isn't a 780 just a Titan with less VRAM? More VRAM is good for higher resolutions/multiple monitor setups, I do know that.

Also, I'm not sure because you're looking at some pretty high end parts, but you might be able to save some money if you bought all of that stuff and built it yourself. But if you're willing to spend $2600, then you might as well go with the highestr end CPU and GPU you can get with that.

If you were playing at 1080p, then you most definitely wouldn't have to upgrade for more than 2 years. 1440p...not sure. I don't have a monitor that can do that so I'm not familiar with how much more power you need to run stuff at that.

Those are both very good PCs, but they are easily $600+ more expensive than it you built it your self.
Even if you don't want to assemble it your self I'm sure you could easily find someone who would be willing to assemble the pieces for you for a lot less than $600.

Here is a PC with more or less the same parts as the ones in your links would cost you buying the pieces your self, not factoring in you can get good quality parts for less from different manufacturers.

Titan
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/20xFc
About $2,060

780ti
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/20xGL
About $1,760

Max can be rather subjective but regardless those will make games look beautiful for a good while, easily longer than 2 years.

I recommend doing this. Either way is a solid choice. Think of the $600 saved as a learning experience (building a PC) and lets you buy more crap for your PC. A lot more crap, especially if it's games you want because of SALES!!!!

It's pretty beast. I tend to avoid recommending SeaSonic G series, though, because despite the great efficiency, low cost, and high performance, I've seen a few too many people reporting the unit failing early on.

The 780 ti is plenty good enough for 1440p. The titan was a niche item and is already basically irrelevant

Oh BTW, just to point out something if you wanted to save a few more bucks. The i7s don't really do anything more for you with regards to gaming compared to a newer i5. At least not now, and I don't think in the near future (2 years would be included in that). Though if you want to do other things with your computer then getting a better CPU would be fine. But for pure gaming an i5 is probably the best.

So if you want to shave another $100 of your build, get a i5-4670K.
