Thoorie, first get yourself a platinum series 1200W power supply. Your computer will need it. I will give you a case study, so that you have a good example of what I usually build with 3k USD. Listed in priority, this was a computer I built very recently:
Corsair 1200W Platinum PSU (New GPUs and CPUs use a lot of power)
Cooler Master HAF X Casing (The only casing that could maintain proper airflow)
ASRock X99 Extreme11 (To ensure proper motherboard cooling)
GSkill RipJaws 4, 4X4GB RAM (X99 systems only)
Neutron GTX 480GB SSD X2 (Because my friend needed to RAID his system)
Any internal DVD player is fine.
Gigabyte G1 NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 970 (This card uses a minimum of 550W, so now you know why your PSU has to provide 1200W.)
Thermaltake Water 3.0 Extreme S (This will keep your CPU below 70 degree celsius, which prevents electronic damage)
Thermaltake Pure 200mm LED White casing fan x3 (They operate at a very quiet 800rpm, but push far more air.)
Intel Core i7 5930k (Good heat dissipation, good bus width, you can overclock a lot.)
Topre Realforce (6KRO, plus really responsive keys and ergonomics. Really good keyboard. This is a real keyboard.)
Razer Ouroboros Gaming Mouse (Fully customizable to fit any hand and grip. Can't get any more anal about this.)
And now you're out of money. Boom, that broke the budget.
If you ever build the above system, I think you may also want only 1 GPU and not 2. This is because 1200W is simply the maximum supply for a single PSU now, but that is barely enough to support the above system. I have yet to discover an elegant workaround for this situation. A GPU can draw around 750W of power, while a CPU can draw 250W. That means that 1200W will barely support 1000W from just your CPU and GPU alone, leaving only 200W for the rest of your computer. This is barely enough to function, especially if you are planning to add even more harddrives or even push for more devices. You really need to make sure you don't kill your computer due to a lack of power.
Let me know how it goes. Good luck.
i have totally no idea what u guys are talking about now.
mind officially blown.
ps. wah thoorie u play on steam? some of the games u mentioned are paid tho.
PSU = Power Supply Unit
CPU = Central Processing Unit
GPU = Graphics Processing Unit
RAM = YouShouldKnowThis
Eh, what else do you need to know?
omg omg my eyes hurts looking at all those
lol i even need 10 seconds to think of how to spell [eyes]
snap another 10 sec

i just develop a fear of spelling [eyes]
no not again

And soon, I'm building a computer with the following specifications:
i7-4970K Intel Devil's Canyon CPU
ASUS MAXIMUS VII Hero Motherboard
ASUS GTX 970 Strix DCU II Graphics
Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB @ 1866MHz
Corsair RM650 Power Supply Unit
Samsung 840 Evo SSD - 256GB
Western Digital Blue/Red 2TB HDD
NZXT Phantom 530 Chassis
NZXT Kraken X61 or Corsair H110
2x Corsair AF120 and 1x AF140 fans
Corsair Vengeance K70 Brown Cherry MX
Razer Deathadder 6400DPI Gaming Mice
Total: 2500 SGD
Looks are probably more important than performance to me :p
The GTX 970 alone consumes not more than 200W with the more efficient Maxwell architecture since it runs only on a single 8-pin (for the strix) power source (about 75W) and the PCIe power.
yes yes i do play steam..... a lot xD most of the "paid games" are the result from "trading" TF2 items so..... its basically free for me :P
@Tenelia thank you so much for giving me such detailed answer to my query i will see it to my best interest to get the parts ^_^
also already have a razer mamba..... think its good enough xD no need for ouroboros
about the electrical input tho... a bit concerning but there must be a way around it sooner or later~
Update: Tomshardware review was on the conservative side, and my minimum number was inaccurate; that was a maximum draw number. After reading reviews that tested a wider variety of third-party cards, the 970 has been shown to exhibit power spikes due to a poor power supply unit, or to draw up to 550W on intensive gaming engines. In addition, the official website for NVIDIA recommends at least 500W for the reference card. The Gigabyte G1 970 was highly recommended because Gigabyte has done various tweaks to allow for the highest maximum power draw among all third party vendors. Overclock.net explains that while specifications list the Gigabyte card as drawing 300W, it is possible to draw much more power than that. 550W was simply that highest possible known so far. Therefore, that has resulted in a design decision to outfit the card with a high-speed and relatively loud fan. Well, with a metal plating, at least that will keep your GPU much cooler.
honestly, you don't need more then 8 ram on your computer plus gaming.
Ram, like 32gb or EVEN 16gb is only needed if you do serious stuff on your computer where you need to have A LOT of tasks and programs open. And if i were you wouldn't buy more then 16gb for a *gaming* pc.
Ever seen skyrim take 9GB RAM? Ever seen next-gen games like Star Citizen demand 8GB RAM? Don't be so arrogant. You have no idea what he will use it for in the years to come, so why do you want to impose your own value judgement on him? And besides, RAM is the cheapest component there. Price differentials between 16GB and 8GB is almost minimal at this stage.
By the way, 32GB and higher RAM counts require CPUs that can actually use that much RAM. If you check the specifications for CPUs, you'll notice not every CPU can support 32GB.
HAHA ok I'll post my specs,
intel i7 4690K 3.2ghz NVIDIA GT980 8GB RAM
Please don't bump. It's been more than 2 weeks
I know I just registered in Xeal Gaming website a few weeks ago I am like a newbie on everything
Oh. Than just now you can't reply to a topic more than 2 weeks old ( meaning noone replied for 2 weeks)
Separate names with a comma.
