    I Need Help With Making a Custom Gaming PC?

    Hey there! I'm on a budget of $1500 and I'm looking to make an amazing gaming desktop PC! I'm not tech savvy on what graphics card to get, or what processor to get, etc. But I'm hoping that the wonderful people here will help me, or even better, make a list! I'm looking for an nvidia graphics card and an i7 4th gen processor! If anyone can help me that would be great! Thank You!

    Hey! Thank You so much for the setup! Just to be sure since this is my first time building a PC, can you provide links for them, please? Sorry if I'm asking for too much. I just want to make sure I'm getting the right parts and also that it will fit in the case. Thank You!

    How much FPS would I get on games? I'm planning on using it for BF4, Titanfall, and Minecraft.

    With that 780ti you're looking at Titanfall and BF4 both on ultra at 60-70 FPS. Minecraft you get 2 fps.

    The mine craft fps thing is a joke in the building community since a lot of kids ask if there computer can run MC but it's one of the lowest needed spec games out so it's always a obvious yes. You'll get like 100 - 300 fps on MC. You won't notice anything after 60 fps though really..
