Hi PC nation!
This is my first build in many years and it is meant for gaming. The aim here was a ~2000$ build (parts are more expensive where I live) that can run pretty much anything on High/Max, averaging 60fps.
CPU: I was initially going to wait for the new Intel Core i5-4690K but as I didn't want to wait and I had the budget to go for the Intel Core i7-4770K, I did just that. Who knows what games might support that multi-threading in the future.
GPU: This was a pretty simple choice. Looking at all the GTX 780's the Gigabyte GHz edition is the most powerful, and the price is so close to the standard card. EDIT: Bought one more so I am now running 2-way SLI.
Motherboard: Newest MSI G-Series board, simple as that.
RAM: Personal experience tells me Corsair is the way to go, and I wanted 16gb as it was such a small amount extra from the 8gb. I choose high-profile RAM as my CPU cooler allows for it.
PSU: I went a little overboard here just to be on the safe side. I guess a 750 would have done just fine.
CPU Cooler: Choose the H100i as it is one of the newest models, and it was not that expensive compared to a Noctua. This also allowed for the RAM I wanted.
This system running Star Citizen on 5760x1080 in nVidia Surround on MAX settings. Running about 35 fps: http://youtu.be/OxYtmvteVDc
