This build is within my price range but I'm unsure if this is overkill or not. Apparently this rig can run games smoothly at 1440p so if I went with this I'd need a new monitor. I want to run most games on max graphics...so what do you think?
You could SLI 780s if you want overkill. That build is pretty high end and the parts they picked are not unreasonable. If you get dual 780s you should be set to max out games for a good 3-4 years unless something crazy comes out.
That's not overkill. The build I'm going to be doing at the end of next year is overkill.
