$3,000 ~ $5,000 rig help please. - Page 9

post #81 of 87
People on this forum are extremely helpful, I built all of desktops with the help of OCN. I would say $2000 is the max for a high end system, because I built my entire setup for under $2000. And that is including three monitors, also I am gaming at 5760 x 1080 with a single 6950 and I never really feel that it's not enough. I'm probably not as FPS hungry as you but I just want you to know that finding good deals on parts are also extremely fun and satisfying.

A good desktop doesn't have to be expensive, but it shold have the best bang for your buck.

The new reality is that >$2k for 99% of users is wasted. You can make a Badass gaming rig now for <$2k.

For 5g's make 2 $2500 computers so you can play with a friend next to you. then you can make him sad when he goes home to his computer.

2600k @ 5ghz, 8gb corsair dominator, 30" 2560x1600 monitor, dual 6990s, 256gb ssd, ~1.2kw psu, high end z68 mobo, custom wc setup

Should put you close to the 5k mark.. but it's way overkill if you ask me l0l, there's no such thing as "future proofing", and even if there was the amount you spend does not necessarily correlate to longevity of your system
