for $2300 at least get 290x, 780ti, or titan

get a 24" 1080p display for $150 and put the rest towards a gpu

Up the GPU to GTX 780 or R9 290X (non reference available now, get one of those). With that price, I think you can get a pretty high end motherboard like Asus Sabertooth or one of the ROG boards, or MSI MPower Max, just make sure it is the Z87 version.

Get a 780 ti, a 2560x1440 monitor, and a full tower case. I have two of those qnix monitors. The resolution increase over 1080p is great, the colors are fantastic, and the size is perfect.

And if you hear as the warm night falls. The silver sound from a time so strange. Sing to me, sing to me.

That's what I was thinking. Plus, I think a 4GB 770 is a bad buy for your money overall.

I'd buy 2 1920x1080 monitors before I'd buy a single monitor of a higher resolution TBH. But then, with the hardware you'll be buying you'd need a much higher resolution monitor to push it.

Definitely get a 780ti.

You should get at least a 4770K and a 290X/780 Ti for $2000+.

Start somewhere around here:

Unless he has specific uses for 32GB of RAM, he's better off sticking with 16GB and investing the extra towards a 780 Ti.
