    Hello everyone. I'm planning to buy a new PC with the only purpose of Gaming.
    So, anyone please help me in find the right hardwares for playing all latest games in high specs.

    My target:
    Resolution: 1080p Edit: 1440p
    Frame rate: 60+ [120 Fps if possible]
    Windows 7 ofcourse. [No need to tell about windows] Edit: Windows 10

    And I've no intention to play games in low detail. And I'll need a PC that can run FIFA 15 and whatever that comes next with ultra high LOD.

    I've already Monitor, speakers, etc. So I just need to know about the main hardwares like GPU, RAM and CPU and the box itself where I'll put all the intestines of the PC [You know what I meant, the main box which contains the GPU, RAM] and everything related to run the game smoothly.

    And this should be able to run all Ps4 gen games smoothly in high details. Thanks for your Support :)

    Oh, and I'll rather buy Nvidia Graphics card cause ATi and intel are worst.

    Edit: Thanks all for th help. This is what I bought:

    GPU: GTx 980 Ti Evga
    CPU: Core i7 4790k
    RAM: 16 GB Ddr3.
    Hdd: 6 TB [No SSD at all]
    Mouse: 125Hz laggy USB Mouse
    Touchpad: Boobs Touchpad.
    Monitor: 1440x900p 75Hz TN Panel full master race.

    Becnhmark:

    45 FPS- Batman Arkham Knight- 2304x1296p
    40 FPS- Rise of Tomb Raider- 2304x1440p
    50 FPS- Assasin's Creed Unity- 2560x1440p
    35 FPS- Quantam Break- 1440x900p
    60 FPS- Metal Gear Solid V- 3456x2160p
    60 FPS- Resident Evil 7 Biohazard- 2560x1440p
    60 FPS- FiFA 16- 3456x2160p
    60 FPS- FiFA 17- 2880x1800p
    60 FPS- PES 10- 3456x2160p
    50 FPS- Witcher 3- 2560x1440p
    35 FPS- Project Cars 2560x1440p

    AMD video cards aren't that bad to be honest, it's the drivers that are sometimes crap. for +60 fps at 1080p you'd need a GTX 780 or an R9 280x. that's like 350-400$ right there. you won't get 120 fps at 1080p (unless it's FIFA) and ultra settings without having dual GPUs or a Titan.


    as for CPU, Intel usually reigns over AMD unless you're doing stuff like video processing, etc. so an i5-4590 should be more than enough for the next few years. usually it's the GPU that needs replacing first. RAM is pretty cheap, just make sure it's 1600 Mhz.

    Thanks for the reply. Yeah, i hate ATi for the driver issues. My ATi drivers got corrupted twice for which I had to reformat my laptop twice. And eats too much CPU.

    Hmm, ok. 120 FPS not much required, 60 is enough for me.
    But I need Ultra settings. So I need more info of dual GPU and the best one.
    And about RAM, I guess 16 GB is enough. Or Should I take 32 GB?
    About processors, is core i5 better than i7? Even though, if core i5 is enough to run games of ps4 gen in high without lags, then I'll take core i5.

    Sorry, I'm noob in these things, so a GTX 780 can support dual GPUs?


    Ah, and I'm now planning to start playing games online too. I'll target broadband connection. Is 1 Mbps broadband connection enough to play games online?

    first off, dual GPU (also known as SLI) is having two video cards running at the same time. two GTX 760 will beat a GTX 780 but it's obviously more expensive. however if you don't have the money you can get a 760 instead of 780 and buy a second one later and run them together. but for 1080p on a single monitor, one video card is enough.

    16gb of RAM is more than enough.

    as for CPU, the more expensive i5s perform better than the cheap i7s. and they still cost less. i7 is overkill for gaming, you might only see a 5 fps difference in Battlefield, but most games do not need that much power. as I've said, the GPU does most of the work when it comes to games.

    as for online, I'm not sure what you mean with 1 mb/s. I've got a 10 mb/s connection but my download speed is 1 mb/s actually. anyway, latency (ping) is usually what matters most. you can have a 100 mb/s connection but if you get 100+ latency you can't do shit in games. my friend has got 1 gb/s optic fiber connection yet we both have the same latency in games like CS or WoW.

    Yeah, with my 24 kbps downloading speed modem, I cant even play FIFA online and in other games I get ping like 400 ms. Like if I shoot another guy dozen times, he just wont get hit. And I'll die even if I dodged his bullet.

    OK, I'll take core i5. And about GPU, if I can't afford two GTX 760's then I'll take 780. And if possible, I'll buy another 780 later. But one question, is it possible for Dual GPU's to have one 780 and other 760? or it will mess up?

    With 1 mbps I meant the downloading and uploading speed separately.

    Edit: Crore i5 2500s @3.30GHZ is good or I need more better to run all games in high settings?

    to run two GPUs at the same time they need to be the same. but two video cards means higher power consumption. so instead of a 500W PSU you'll need 600 or 650W.

    i5 2500 is a bit old, but it should do. I can't even find it anymore on the online shops here. i5-4460 is another alternative if 4590 is too expensive. you can go with AMD if you want something cheaper but it will need overclocking to match the 4460, however you need a great cooling setup for it cause they run hot.

    Ok thanks a lot. BTW, whats PSU? The little thingy beside the Box which acts like battery?

    Nah, ill take 4460 or 4590. High details is what I need. Got sick enough playing in low detail and almost hurt my eye a lot as I hate low detail [which causes me to play in high details] making games like 24 fps and caused me head aches.

    get someone from a computer store or service to help you. or open a topic on tomshardware. you need to make sure the new stuff you get is compatible with the rest of your components.

    Sami, the most important thing is to tell us what your budget is before you launch into what you want... Theo's already given you great information about all the hardware itself and I could recommend all the best parts to build the greatest gaming PC in the world, but if you've only got $200 to spend then you're not going to achieve your goals.

    My budget is most probably $ 1300 But if its necessary, I can spend up to $ 1600.
    Like I already said, I don't need monitors, speakers and all other parts except PSU, Case [and other things inside it such as motherboard, Blue ray drive, GPU, CPU etc] as I already have 2 PC

    Edit: I intend to take 1 TB hard disk.

    Oh, and the requirements you guys suggested can handle 3D support too?
    Even though I'm not NBA fan, but in the recommended system requirements of NBA 2K 15 I see it says core i7. I'm not intending to play FIFA games only. But rather all the games of this generation. So I need a PC that can run all games in max settings in 1080p in 60 fps of the whole Ps4 gen [upto the last game] Please, confirm me about it.

    Thanks for the link mate :D. Okay, so I decided to have the following system specifications:

    CPU: Intel i5-4690k
    Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BK [To cool the i5-4690k while overclocking]

    RAM: 32 GB 1600 Mhz.

    GPU: Dual Nvidia Geforce 780 Gtx [2 GB I guess ]

    HDD: 1 TB

    Motherboard: ASRock Z97 Extreme3

    PSU: EVGA 1000W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

    Case: What should I choose?!!!
    These all will cost $ 1710 I guess. But I can take my budget upto $ 2000.

    But one thing, will the mother board I mentioned supports Nvidia gtx 780 dual gpu ?

    Edit: Oh, and btw, I play games a lot and for 3 hours at a time. Will my mentioned cooling setups will handle it? Or it will just burn out? I don't wanna buy CPU again for such things. Thanks.

    Edit: F**k, the case dont support optical drives I guess [aka Blue ray drives!!]
    No no, I need a case that can handle such things and supports optical drive ofcourse!!

    If you use the PC Part Picker site it will notify you of any incompatibilities between parts.

    Okay, thanks a lot. Really appreciate it. BTW, will these specs be able to run games in 3D TV without lags? Or I need core i7 in that case?

    A GTX 970 and GTX 780 are around the same price here, so if that's the case in your country I would go with the 970's if you can. No point paying the same for old technology. I currently have a single Gigabyte G1 970 GTX card and it basically runs everything in Full HD on max settings for most new games so getting two should easily handle whatever your gaming needs are (except 4K gaming).

    You don't need 32GB RAM, 16GB will be enough for gaming unless you're into 3D rendering/video editing etc.

    I'd use the money saved from the RAM to upgrade from an i5 to an i7 4790K. If you don't plan to overclock and your budget is getting a bit tight, get the non-K model for ~$50 less.

    I'd also look at getting a small SSD on top of your 1TB hard drive (is 1TB enough for you?) just to install Windows/Anti-Virus/Office/Photoshop on. The difference in boot up speeds is very noticeable.

    Also I can't stress this enough: Please let a professional build your PC! It sounds like you don't really know what you're doing and you're investing in some serious hardware, so an extra $50-100 could save you from accidentally damaging some gear (as I've learnt in the past...).

    Okay. Thanks a lot mate. That information was really helpful. Btw, the reason I can't rely on experts is because I live in Bangladesh and in here I can't trust them (They don't know anything about gaming and tend to give wrong idea. Atleast I got fooled back in 2008 and I couldn't even run any games of Ps3 gen. Even my crappy laptop can run better than it!!).

    Thank you again for mentioning me about the RAM and CPU. Couldn't have done without the help of you guys :)

    Edit: only thing left is harddisk. 2 TB is enough? Sorry for lame questions but I'm completely noob in these things.
