Okay, so about this time next month, I plan on building me a new PC. This is my build so far, mostly based off the Extreme Gaming 2410 build from Marest's thread.
CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
MoBo: Asus Maximus VI Hero ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 780 (OC) 3GB Video Card
Case: Corsair Obsidian Series 800D ATX Full Tower Case
PSU: Corsair 860W 80 PLUS Platinum Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit)
Keyboard: Corsair Vengeance K70 Wired Gaming Keyboard
Mouse: Corsair Vengeance M65 Wired Laser Mouse
With that I'm sitting at 2493.44 shipped. There's some parts that have discounts that will be gone before I'm able to buy them, but I'm okay with going a little over budget. The only real changes I have made were the mobo, power supply, and the OC version of the ASUS GTX 780 (was only 10 bucks more and red/black). This was mainly because I want to go with a Red/Black/White theme. The Maximus VI Hero mobo, the AX860i PSU, and the ASUS GPU compliment this perfectly. I'm wanting it to be an extremely high powered gaming system that's going to last me a long time, and will play absolutely anything I throw at it on the max settings. So I guess my main questions are, are there any components that you may use in place of what I have? I have no problems changing the color scheme I'm going for if it means better components within my budget. Color scheme is the least of my worries, though I'd like it all to match. And I know the new AMD GPUs are supposed to be coming in October. Should I wait for those to come out?
Didn't really fit a monitor or speakers etc. into the budget because I'm hoping for some of those things I want to come along in the form of Christmas gifts. lol
As far as my gameplay tendencies, I play a bit of everything. I plan on having games like Battlefield 4 and Watch Dogs, etc. Sometimes I stream gameplay on twitch, not sure if that would have an effect or not. I also have no interest in running SLI/Crossfire. I'm a single GPU kind of guy. TIA
EDIT: I'm also willing to drop the keyboard and mouse from the budget in favor of better computer parts, which is ~$180 extra.
