@kazeswen:Personally, I've never seen anyone post that 4K gaming could be done on the cheap. 4K gaming on PC has always been a bit of a pipe-dream because the technology has always lagged.Until a single card can handle 4K at 60fps, I personally won't consider it a viable option.A lot of the things in your list are luxury items...like who really "needs" (<---key word) a 1TB SSD for gaming, or "needs" to drop $850 on a CPU + MoBo Combo.Future Proof in PC gaming is another pipe-dream because there is always something better in the pipeline. Blu-Ray Drives are not $90 and who needs a $220 case???32GB of RAM is pure overkill at $170. Drop in 16GB for starters, grab more down the road if more was ever needed.You can't exactly set out to "overbuild" a PC then say its expensive.
