    Thanks for the link mate . Okay, so I decided to have the following system specifications:

    CPU: Intel i5-4690k
    Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BK [To cool the i5-4690k while overclocking]

    RAM: 32 GB 1600 Mhz.

    GPU: Dual Nvidia Geforce 780 Gtx [2 GB I guess ]

    HDD: 1 TB

    Motherboard: ASRock Z97 Extreme3

    PSU: EVGA 1000W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

    Case: What should I choose?!!!
    These all will cost $ 1710 I guess. But I can take my budget upto $ 2000.

    But one thing, will the mother board I mentioned supports Nvidia gtx 780 dual gpu ?

    Edit: Oh, and btw, I play games a lot and for 3 hours at a time. Will my mentioned cooling setups will handle it? Or it will just burn out? I don't wanna buy CPU again for such things. Thanks.

    Edit: F**k, the case dont support optical drives I guess [aka Blue ray drives!!]
    No no, I need a case that can handle such things and supports optical drive ofcourse!!

        Okay, thanks a lot. Really appreciate it. BTW, will these specs be able to run games in 3D TV without lags? Or I need core i7 in that case?

          A GTX 970 and GTX 780 are around the same price here, so if that's the case in your country I would go with the 970's if you can. No point paying the same for old technology. I currently have a single Gigabyte G1 970 GTX card and it basically runs everything in Full HD on max settings for most new games so getting two should easily handle whatever your gaming needs are (except 4K gaming).

          You don't need 32GB RAM, 16GB will be enough for gaming unless you're into 3D rendering/video editing etc.

          I'd use the money saved from the RAM to upgrade from an i5 to an i7 4790K. If you don't plan to overclock and your budget is getting a bit tight, get the non-K model for ~$50 less.

          I'd also look at getting a small SSD on top of your 1TB hard drive (is 1TB enough for you?) just to install Windows/Anti-Virus/Office/Photoshop on. The difference in boot up speeds is very noticeable.

          Also I can't stress this enough: Please let a professional build your PC! It sounds like you don't really know what you're doing and you're investing in some serious hardware, so an extra $50-100 could save you from accidentally damaging some gear (as I've learnt in the past...).

            Okay. Thanks a lot mate. That information was really helpful. Btw, the reason I can't rely on experts is because I live in Bangladesh and in here I can't trust them (They don't know anything about gaming and tend to give wrong idea. Atleast I got fooled back in 2008 and I couldn't even run any games of Ps3 gen. Even my crappy laptop can run better than it!!).

            Thank you again for mentioning me about the RAM and CPU. Couldn't have done without the help of you guys

            Edit: only thing left is harddisk. 2 TB is enough? Sorry for lame questions but I'm completely noob in these things.

              I need a good Gaming PC.

              Fair enough re Bangladesh stores!

              Memory isn't the most important aspect of a graphics card, but it definitely affects performance (particularly with extra visual effects). This is why I highly recommend you get the GTX 970 as your video card (brand is largely irrelevant, as long as you go with a major manufacturer like Gigabyte, MSI, ASUS etc.), as it comes with 4GB, support for the newest technology and is very reasonably priced for the performance - so much so that you may be able to afford two which would set you up to run any game on decent settings for the next 2-3 years!

                Okay. Thanks a lot. The only thing that worries me if these things are available in my country. Or else it will be a pain to buy it from online.
                Btw, you said it will run in decent settings for next 2-3 years. So after that, can't I run the games smoothly? (Even with settings equal to Ps4?) Or you meant I have to play in low settings which is worse than ps4?

                  Unless Bangladesh is really behind in technology, I'd be shocked if they didn't have 970's available for sale - it's already been out for a few months and is one of Nvidia's top selling products!

                  Don't take the 2-3 years comment too literally, obviously I can't predict what games will look like in the future. New PC games already look better than PS4 thanks to all the extra visual processing it can do (e.g. FIFA15 and NBA 2K15 on PC used the same graphics engine as PS4/XB1, also check out Far Cry 4 for a direct comparison), and a single GTX 970 can handle it with ease. If you want dual cards as suggested in your last build, you'd be pretty hard pressed to find anyone in the country with a more powerful setup than you for gaming.

                  Graphics card is the single most important hardware which will affect your gaming performance, much more than say extra RAM/CPU/SSD hard drive etc. so it makes sense to focus on this area.

                    Ok mate. Thats all I really needed. Thanks for the support everyone who helped me.

                      I used this website to decide on which CPU to buy. https://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html

                      Similarly, there is a gpu benchmark rank list also https://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html

                      I have a GTX 760, 16 GB RAM and intel core i7-4770K and FIFA 15 works fine on it.

                      I think the GTX 760 is very good value for money. You can also upgrade to SLI if you are not satisfied with the performance.

                        Yeah, I visited that site already. I would rather take core i5 if I cant afford. But most probably I'll take two gtx 970 and corei7.

                          As for cases, I strongly recommend NZXT cases. They are very good value for money, quality and have stunning designs.

                          Here's my NZXT phantom 410

                            Hmm I like it too. Does it support optical drive? I saw many case that doesnt support one.

                              Not necessary IMO but I think it's safest to have a professional to help. I built my desktop completely on my own with the help of youtube videos but it took hours and hours.

                                Of course. You have to buy it separately and put it in one of the bays.



                                I bought a bluray drive for $70 but I am sure you can get for cheaper.
