I am wanting to build a gaming pc with a budget around $2500-$2700.
So far I got this, please if you think there is something better please post a link of the item.
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD3H LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
Memory: CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1866C9R (Red)
Hard Drive/SSD:Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Retail kit/SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
GPU:EVGA 03G-P4-3784-KR GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Dual FTW w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card
PSU: 1000w modular
Cooling: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm/Corsair Air Series AF120 Performance Edition CO-9050004-WW 120mm Twin Pack High Airflow Case Fan (2)
Will also get CD drive. Also looking for a nice case, and a good wireless card since I hate using ethernet, make sure case can fit all the fans that I want including water cooling. Finally, I need a nice monitor, mouse, and keyboard preferably gaming wise. Remember the things listed above is around $2100, so try to keep it around $2500 for peripherals and case. If there is anything else that you like over the items listed above please leave a comment.
looks good, but the psu is completely overkill 650W is more then enough for a single gpu setup. i would personaly grab a nicer mobo, cause i dont realy like gigabyte, but thats personal.
The parts you have listed total $1677 for me? Unless you're Canadian, then that changes everything.
Anyways, here's what I would recommend for everything altogether:
I switched the motherboard to something with stronger audio capabilities (and has better ratings), switched to a larger SSD, switched to a different 2 TB mechanical hard drive, added a decent case, switched to a smaller and cheaper power supply, added a basic optical drive, added a decent monitor, a decent wireless adapter, a good keyboard, and a good mouse.
I like this build. Consider changing the monitor to something ultra HD or a high refresh, to utilise the 780. Or multiple monitors!

Offcourse peripherels and case is a personal thing. For the rest i think this is a very nice 1440P gaming system. GTX780Ti best single gpu on the market right now, NZXT Phantom 530 case with alot of room and options for airflow. NZXT Kraken X60 close loop liquid cooler, this one offcourse does not realy need any words.. its just one of the best aio´s on the market. further i choosed for a Asus Z87 pro mobo, this board allready has bluetooth and wifi onboard. if you prefer black red, you could allways swap that board for a Msi Z87 G45/G65 Gaming, Or Asus Maximus VI hero, and buying a sepperate pci-e X1 lan card if you like.
Monitor: Achieva Shimian 27" 2560x1440 ips monitor (LG AH-ips panel inside)
Offcourse you also go cheaper if you like, grabbing a R9-290 or GTX780 instead of the 780Ti. or if its just for gaming grabbin an i5-4670K instead.
