You can go dual graphics card instead if you cut down on overpriced products.

 

Post budget please and I will make a different build.

 

Edit: Is this USA, canada or australia?

Guys you can give suggestions if you want to.My goal is only gaming.First of al let me clear things up.

1.I will never go for any I5

2.The monitor you saw is a 3D monitor,I love 3D(who doesn't?)

3.The 16 gig ram is pretty cool.Cuz I am gonna use Photoshop and some dum video editors.

4.The liquid cooler is a good choice since here ambient temperature hits upto 48C

5.The 780Ti is the best choice.There are no turns here.

6.My budget is 3000$ which means that I have tried to pur high end stuff as much as I could.

Look at my suggestions, the things you listed are basicly fine.

 

Btw + 1 rating for not spending half your budget on a 1200++++W PSU like so many others...

1. Unless you plan to keep this pc for a helluva lot of years getting an I7 is a waste of money given that 99% of the time you will be gaming.

2. 3D monitor gaming is a gimmick at best really.

3. No argument there

4. No argument there, hell it would probably be best if you got Kraken G10 for your graphics cards

5. There are tons of turns there lol. The 780 Ti is stupid expensive. You would be better off SLI 780 which will give much better performance. You could even go triple R9 290 vapor-x and go much better on performance and still be at lower than double the price of a 780 Ti.

6. Just because you HAVE $3000 doesn't mean you should spend it all. Just because you can stick your dick in a beehive and wiggles it about furiously doesn't mean you should.

 

Edit: Also that is the most overpriced case I have ever seen.

Yea yea.Sli or crossfire is not going to increase the performance I think they ate good for multiple displays.I saw a video on YouTube.A guy with 780ti sli had the same fps as a single 780ti

That is because the game he was playing did not support SLI -.-

You said "Critics be my guest". Now I provide criticism and you wave the imaginary finger by going "yea yea". Don't ask for criticism if you're going to do that. Also 1 case of SLI not being an improvement is A. an isolated case and B. @Erik4boss 's statement.

This is how I would go. Since your ambient's are so damn high I would not go AMD. If you can stretch your budget by another $300-400 you can get 2 Way SLI 780Ti. Otherwise SLI 780 > Single 780 Ti. The case fans are 2 for the front for intake and 1 at the top for outtake next to your radiator. The 4th is for if it fits at the back (can't remember off the top of my head whether the back fits a 140mm)

Better PSU, non-3D monitor though imo still very good. Put in 2 290Xs which are fairly the best available other than the Lightning card. Cheaper RAM with the same specs but better aesthetic. Cheaper CPU cooler and mobo, though still extremely good. I also added a 2TB Barracuda for mass storage. So yeh, for just over $200 more I was able to fit in a better GPU config, a HDD, better PSU and some overall changes for the better.

A good one! Despite that liquid cooler.Does MSI gaming 7 support 5th generation Intel processors? And it only supports dx11.I don't need crosfire or sli.I don't even need a 2 tb HDD.

Well the H100i is an excellent CPU cooler, and yes the Z97 Gaming 7 supports Broadwell (5000 series). The 290Xs in CF are much better, and having a 2TB mass storage for some movies/game recordings or such might prove useful. Also Idk what you mean by the Z97 Gaming 7 only supporting DX11, it will surely be able to support DX12, though you'll need a copy of Win8/9 as Win7 support will be cut off before the release of it.

The Phanteks Enthoo Primo is designed as a watercooling case, much the same way the Corsair 900D is. It is a bit of a waste to stick an AIO cooler in there. If you want something with good airflow that doesn't cost a premium then look at something like the Corsair 540.
