Help build me a PC that will last a few years.

Okay Nerds, build me the most awesome computer 2000 dollars can get me. 



Here are the conditions.



#1. PSU needs to be powerful enough to handle future SLI



#2. No ATI GPU, only Nvidea



#3. SDD for the OS



-------------------



Reusable pieces 



#1. Case (Full Tower) - Can get another if it fits your build budget



#2 CPU air cooler Nocta d-14 (I think)



---------------------



Pretty well I want this new computer to last a few years. I would prefer not going SLI right away and would rather get a better single card and just be ready for SLI down the road when the one card I buy is slightly cheaper.



I've made a build for roughly 1900 dollars that includes a new tower. I just want to see what some better experienced people can find out there.



Thanks in advance, go!

    Is that $1900 excluding peripherals (monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, surge protector)?  Or do you need new peripherals, too?

    About how much storage capacity do you need?  You could get both an SSD and a hard drive, or you could get just an SSD and no hard drive.

    What case do you have that you're looking to reuse?

    I'd advise that you either get two cards for SLI up front, or else not try to build around going SLI in the future.  If you plan on adding one card today and another later, then by the time you get around to adding the second card, it will probably be obsolete enough that the sensible thing to do will be to get rid of your first card and get something much newer instead.  Fermi was a disastrous architecture for gaming purposes, so Nvidia will likely show some huge performance gains in coming generations, if only because it's easier to improve on something that was terrible than to improve on something that was really great.

    yeap that you go or just go to alienware though i hear the customer support sucks. Also never buy alienware montiors if you go that route they harm your vision. CPS are amazing for gaming but the montiors make u sixty five in eye sight in a week.

     LMAO that would be a mistake.

     

    OP 2k can get you a really decent computer.

     

    I would look up some info for ya , but i'm kinda lazy and feel like with some research you could probably build your own without my help.

     Do not buy alienware.. build your own and safe some money.

     

    Get a 6 core cpu 3 + ghz sandy bridge or something. With a DDR3 motherboard, and a 750+ corsair or psu modular 1000 watt something like that.

     

    get a 1 tb hard drive, and that ssd I guess for you to put your game on.

    Get a decent case that will fit all this shit.

     

    Get 2-3 GPU's 6870 or so since they are cheap as hell now.

     

    or nvidia 470 or somethin glike that, maybe they have better now  probably 500 series.
