What is the best options for building a new computer? I have about $1100 saved up to build a new gaming pc... But I don't know if I would be able to build a pc that will max out games on the highest settings on 1080p or maybe 1440p. I was looking at getting an i7 6700k and a gtx 1080 but I would probably need to save up another 800 or 900 and just go all out and get 32gb of ram and a sli motherboard so I could get a second 1080 down the road... I ultimately don't know if I should save up more money or just go out and get a good pc for around $1000 or so...

Well under your $1000 price tag.

The Xeon is an i7 minus the igpu, The 480 is a good 1440p card. Large SSD, large HDD,
 
It really depends on what this is built for....If you are talking about gaming then a i5 is much better value and same as i7 in games. Also, at 1440p, a gtx 1070 is an excellent choice as you'll play games at around 100fps or better.

Some more info about what this is for and what country will help get more comments.

Hey there, I just want to show you this build. This is not a $1100 build, but it's one of my favorites.

*The i7-6700 is great balance of Price, Performance, and Efficiency. An awesome choice for a stable gaming PC.
*The Asrock H110M-HDS is my favorite H110 board. It's an amazing value board that has MOSFET Heatsinks, High Quality Audio, Great I/O, and Full Spike Protection.
*The G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) is an aggresive looking RAM that would fit nicely on windowed systems. 32GB is an overkill for a gaming PC, but it's great to see tons of RAM in your system.
*The WD Blue is an inexpensive drive which offers a good mix of Price, Performance, and Reliability
*The Asus GTX 1080 ROG STRIX is a personal choice. It features RGB lighting which looks cool on a windowed system.
*The Apevia X-QBER-PK is cute little pink case that supports horizontal motherboard mounting and a dual windowed clear side panels which would feature the aggressive looking RAM and awesome RGB video card.
*The SeaSonic M12II is a great quality PSU that ensures the stability of your system. Its fully modular design would allow you to eliminate clutters and make your system look clean.

An SSD would be a welcome addition to that build. It would allow faster boot up times, and faster loading times in some games.
