    Already have monitor covered, so no need to include/consider that into the build, I have a few in mind, but I wanted input and/or ideas, not asking or expecting anyone to go figure out the optimal build for the price, as if such a thing exists, it is going to be a computer I will keep for a while, not just a short time. And after the catastrophe of macos yosemite, i am most certainly a windows 7 and/or a non-mac person, haven't seem to much of windows 10 yet, but overall, build suggestions within 2500$, aiming for a build as close to 2500 as possible, not a max cost-i-could-possibly-pay-is 2500., other input gladly taken

    well i don't know if anyone here will care enough to make a build for you, but you can find some on this site below, or you can use it to piece together a machine. it tells you the cost of each component from various websites too

    No offence, just why a 2500 one? Thats really steep for a computer, mine was just a little under 1000 and it runs everything on max just fine. Its your money if you want something like that, THAT bad, im just saying theres no need to go that expensive.

    Well, win 10 is a good os, and it is the only one that support directx 12.
    Pd: another thing, i dont know if you have done this, but when you get that pc and install the os, you should make another partition with most of the memory there, and reelocate all your data folders (documents, music, desktop, photos, etc.) to your new partition, so if your os gets damaged/infected or any other thing that would need new OS, you wont have the need of making data recovery and all of those things, because your data will be safe on your other partition, the only thing that could be a problem is disk failure.

    Just want to comment and agree that $2500 is just too much for a build, unless you're just dying to have some $1000+ graphics card for bragging sake.

    Aim is for a 4k res build, i just built up a budget to safely and easily afford it

    I like this, tho the list seems a little short, anything else I'd need to pick up? (Not necessarily specific parts, just what parts)

    Steam:

    A single 1080 won't really cut it for 4k, depending on the game, unless you want to sacrifice fps. Also really no point in buying a founders edition card anymore.

    I know, his was just the base, adjusted accordingly, solid fps for all games on max settings in 4k , could link the changes later if anyone is interested
