Hey guys, I have always wanted to build my own gaming PC for as long as I can remember and recently I have decided to make it a reality and finally start saving towards one.

My budget is $2,500 and that's for everything, PC, monitor, keyboard, etc. My goal is to build a super beefy gaming PC that can handle any game I want to play (and future games as well) on max graphical settings while maintaining the good 60 FPS or above. I was looking into 2K capabilities, I would get 4K but I know that can get expensive fast.

What components should I purchase to achieve this? Is my budget reasonable for what I want? I was hoping you guys could help me out with that.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post, have a great day. :)

Don't plan the build out more than a week in advance. Honestly that's too far in some cases. How long till you have the $2500? The market this year is definitely going to change with ryzen 3000 and 10nm Intel both being released and a few more Nvidia non rtx cards rumored and AMD releasing navi

I plan to have the $2,500 in 3 months or so, do you recommend for me to wait before I finalize some of the parts?

Absolutely. You just never know what will happen and you'll end buying something outdated. 3 months is kind of interesting and ceo said middle of 2019 maybe we'll know a but more about 3gen ryzen by then
 
Definitely wait but with that budget I would recommend something like this but add another be quiet 140mm fan - two up front and move the included front fan to the top rear as exhaust.

If you want an ips screen, try to find a 144hz model thats on the nvidia adaptive compatible list.

Thanks for all the replies, so I will wait until I get the full amount I need until I finalize my build but for now I really like this build you've recommended me. I'll keep it and see if anything changes down the line. If anyone has anything else they might want to let me know feel free to post on this thread some more. Thank you guys for your time!
