I'm not a person who will be upgrading. I'll drop the cash from the start and get higher end, not necessarily the highest end components and just ride that build for the next 5 years or so probably. So some pieces may seem a bit overkill, but that is alright with me. My aim is under $2,000, right now I'm sitting at about $1,500 with an estimated $200 for a video card. Thanks for any input or tips that anybody may post. Feel free to comment on any of the combinations or components I've got listed below, its not too late to make changes.
