New build $2000

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all. Looking to build a new gaming rig. That is, strictly gaming. Very little intensive applications / software outside of gaming.

Here's some requirements: looking to play high-end games *BF4, new MMORPG's, etc.* in high settings. Also looking to stream high quality as well. I'd like two monitors because I always keep the web open in one. Does anyone know the settings for Curse Gaming or any other super super high quality streamer? It's weird, it almost looks like a soap opera or something the quality is absurd, and I'm not sure what makes that happen.

Anyways, here's what I have so far.

The price is a bit over $2k, so I'm looking to maybe trim that down. Thanks for your help!

Just curious, but why the micro ATX in a case as large as the Phantom?

You can have a case for a long time, it's somewhat of an investment I would guess.

WOW - Lots of great responses really fast. I should have noted, I won't be building the computer until next month. I'm going to a new command and I'm building it as soon as I report in. So some of these great deals you guys find might be gone. As I / we refine the build I'll definitely keep it updated!
