Need Help Building a Pure Gaming PC for Around $2500!

I planning on building my first ever PC to prepare for Fallout 4. I have around 2,500 dollars i am willing to spend. That does not include monitor, mouse, keyboards and etc. I want to build a pure gaming PC that is future proof. I just want to focus on the PC itself and not any peripherals.

I would appreciate some suggestions to the components, particularly the CPU, GPU, Motherboard, CPU cooler, Case, Memory, Hard drive and SSD, and power supply.

thanks, and i will try to answer any questions that arise

thanks for the reply! This build you did is very well made, but i have some concerns..

Will the video cards fit in the mid case?

What if i sacrifice the the ssd storage amount but got a better motherboard?

Other than that, you been very helpful and i am truly considering this build!

Amazing build, +1 definitely..

But for such an amazing build I'd choose the NH-U14S
