I didn't pick out the case. I'll probobly end up changing it out. Also, I got a 404 error with your link.

Edit: never mind, missed the period at the end of the link

Unfortunately if you had one more grand you could get the PC I posted in the YouTube video but that's okay I have something that could work for you in your price range.

Parts:
i-4790k ($340)
Asus Z97 Mobo ($180)
16 GB Cosair Vengeance LP (170)
2x EVGA GTX 780 SC ACX (3GB Each - $1040)
Any 1000 Watt PSU ($120 ish)
CM HAF 912 ($60)
Corsair Hydro H50 ($60)
3GB Western Digital ($180)
225GB SSD of Your choice ($250 cap)
Lite-On Regular Disk Drive ($20)
Corsair SP120 120mm Fan ($34)

Total: $2,400 (Rounded up - not including tax)

For this build you get to SLI with two 780's and I don't think the Ti's are actually worth $200 more than the regular 780's. I also went the resourceful route by going a little cheaper on the case but it's a very good one that keeps your computer airy and cool via the case, water cooler and also the double additional fans. That means you have around $600 to spare. Thing is monitors are more of a preference choice to me. What I see and what you see are completely different so I'll let you go shopping on that. At least with a PC we have a clear understanding through benchmarks. With monitors, it's more of a preference. It's up to you and I hope I was somewhat helpful.

i7 4770k CPU ~$330
SLI 780ti GPU's ~$1,400
1 TB SSD primary ~$440
1 or 2 TB HDD secondary ~$80 for 2TB
Motherboard ~$170
Power Supply ~$120
Case ~$150 (just depends on how you want it to look visually)

And either one of these monitors

Samsung 4k Monitor ~$600
LG 3440 x 1440 34" Ultra Wide ~$900

That's actually around $300 or so dollars over your budget, but I estimated a little high potentially for the mobo/case/power supply.

I've always wanted someone to try this and tell me how it is. You sir would be amazing if you could try this build for me because I'm too poor...


Do you know the price point of that system? From my limited knowledge, that looks way over, even my budget.


I plugged everything into PCPartpicker and it came out to a little over 4k with monitor and everything.

Yeah, I plugged in myself. Unfortunately quite a bit over budget.
