To the non-gamer, $2500 may seem a bit steep for a PC. To a serious PC gamer, it's a pretty affordable build. Don't get me wrong; this PC is no slouch. The two GTX-670 cards pack a lot of punch for the money, enough so to keep you running ultra settings at 1080p for quite some time. The i7 2600k is a killer proc for the money thanks to its major overclocking potential.
In the end, building a enthusiast class gaming PC isn't an exact science. With a budget of $2500, what would your build look like? Tell us in the comments below.
