Hey guys, ive been reading the forum for a while now and theres a bunch of ppl who know their stuff so ill ask for opinions. I would like to build a fantastic all around computer (video editing, gaming, programing, everyday use) I've been working off my laptop but its simply not cutting it anymore. any ideas on a good build for 2013 and beyond? (Budget around $1750-2500)

Looks like you have a big budget.

I wasn't sure whether you needed a monitor, so I didn't include one. You should get an Nvidia 3D vision 2 one.

What do you think about this build? It lands you just on $2000.

If you want to save a little bit of money, you don't have to get two graphics cards today. One such graphics card will be enough for maxing out all games without 3D. If you buy a 3D monitor, in some games, settings will have to be reduced a bit (for example, Battlefield 3).
