I'm looking to make a computer that can display beautiful quality for a budget of 2800 USD http://pcpartpicker.com/list/R3FPf8 this is my current build as of now. I want to be able to run more RPGs than FPSs but I will occasionally switch. I definately think that I can do better than this thought. Are some things in here overpriced? Can I change components in the PC that I don't need?

Are you thinking like 140fps, 4k resolution gaming quality when you say "beautiful quality"? Do you have a few games in mind that you plan on playing (this will help determine if you'd be better of with nvidia or amd, as their top cards have different niches). Some things on pcpartpicker are definitely overpriced, others are under priced, it just shows you everything it can find.

  1. If you're using this for mainly just gaming, the i7 is pointless. Having extra cores will not help with gaming much at all. You'd be better off going with an i5-6600k.

  2. There are a lot of cheaper parts you could get, but you'll start to sacrifice some quality if you do so. For example a 750w power supply, is probably more than you need, but it does leave room for expansion or an additional video card if you want one in the future. There are cheaper motherboards available, but that one is fairly decent quality for the price.

  3. Do you actually plan on overclocking, if not, you don't need a k series processor and extra cooler.

  4. I think the case is a little pricey, but if you like it, you may feel differently.

  5. 1tb isn't very much storage room, I'd either get another hard-drive or buy a larger 3TB one instead.
