    Looking For a Decent Build

    Hey I was wondering if someone could make me a nice build? I'm hoping for a budget around a grand but it can be over that (under 2 grand). I've never built a PC before and I feel like I could use some help with it. I'd prefer Intel to AMD and don't plan on OC-ing because I'd have no clue what I was doing. If anybody could help I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

    Feel free to swap the 8GB of RAM to 12GB or 16GB, but I find 8GB is enough for most people. You can also swap the GTX 760 to a 770, but the 760 is very good value and it's cheap to add another one down the road and have god tier performance. If you aren't overclocking then a stock cooler will be enough.

    Isn't that powersupply a bit overkill, fair enough if he want's to SLI the 760's later on he doesn't need to upgrade the PSU but for a single card build that's a little bit much.

    For that price why not? His budget is under $2000 and I'm well under. Getting a powerful PSU now ensures he won't have to replace it for many years. If it were a budget build I would recommend a 600-650W PSU, but if he has the money why not get the one component that can be futureproofed.

    Ah, good point, I forgot the budget was 2K.

    I would go with this,and you still have about 800$ to spend.

    You could go for:

    Intel Core i7 4770K CPU (Go for a 4670K if it's a strictly gaming build)
    Intel 520 Series 240GB SSD (Or Samsung 840)
    ASUS Sabertooth Z87 motherboard
    Fractal Design Define R4
    ZOTAC AMP! GTX 780 video card
    WD Green 3TB hard drive
    Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 RAM
    Corsair Builder Series CX600

    Total = $1,979.43, just under 2k for a PC that will last you for a long ass time.
