You and I have different Ideas for what is 'High end'. Allow me to explain my reasoning.

Entry: $100 or under All about cost.
Mid:$100-200 I want some kick.
High:$200-300 More Dakka
Enthusiast:$300-500 I am demanding
Extreme: $500 The best and nothing but.

And yes you could save on an SSD by only buying one big enough for the OS but getting bigger allows you to put games on it. Which is nice. You could also use a 120gb and use Intel's Smart Responce to use it as a cache for your storage HD. I wasn't trying to go into too much detail because it was such a general answer.

Since I don't plan on using Mutimonitor gaming, I have no looked into it as much. I only heard that most recommend cards with more then 2GBs of memory. lucky the 280x has 3GB standard (at least at the cards I looked at.) However, they were having driver problems with crossfire and Eyefinity. I dunno if those have been worked out yet. Generally speaking I would favor a single card setup and much higher then 300$ you start getting a lot less for your buck.


Well if you are adding 2 extra tiers than that makes sense but I think "the best" is more than 500 so you should probably put 500 and above
Referring to a 780 ti at about 700$ I think

yes, I did mean and above. Sorry for excluding that.

And yes The 780 TI is king of graphic cards right now hands down. However the Bang for buck is low and some see that as negative and will buy accordingly.

I went to anandtech for help with my build, that and about 4 months of researching, reading reviews, watching videos. This is not to say I'm new to pc's, just was out of the field for a while took my time. My builds a bit over a year old now, won't bore anyone with details unless ya wanna know...

but 2 points i wanted to bring up which was the reason i made this post:

1. One of anandtech's forums users keeps a weekly update on a mid-range build, aiming for $1000, based on bang for buck at highest quality, not counting for keyboard, mouse, monitor, or OS current build is:
http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2192841

12/8/2013 update:
i5 4670K + MSI Z87-G55 + G.Skill DDR3 1600 8GB combo $387
GTX 770 2GB $300 AR
Samsung 840 EVO 250GB $170
Seagate 7200RPM 1TB $65
Lite-ON DVD Burner $18
Corsair 650TX $70 AR
Corsair 200R $50 AR
Total: $1060 AR AP

2. Everyone there insists on answering a set of questions, I won't list them all out, but you can find them here: http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=80121

they use them to stream-line the process of helping users out. It'd help us to help you, if we had the answers to those questions (if you feel comfortable answering them here).

I will say that the guys over there are very helpful as well, if you need the extra help.

I definitely recommend custom built even if you've never done so, it's a lot of fun and you'll love you system all the more knowing it's exactly what you want. :)

Good luck!


That is pretty good list. Thanks for the information. ^^
