I have the question about the 2000 USD limit. Does that include tax,fee or no? What I mean is should I only config like 1800 USD system ( since 1800 + tax, fee it will be around 2000) or 2000 system.

So, question I only have a 1920x1080 monitor, and that seems to be the biggest difference between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080, the 1080 does 4k...

Is it better to go with the 1080 and 2666Mhz DDR4 or 1070 and 2933Mhz DDR4 XMP?
Or should I go with a less power CPU and find a build that has a 1080 Ti or dual 1080Ti?
I also hear that multi video cards have a diminishing return and aren't 100% needed.

I'm seeing mixed info about the i7 1800K and memory speed helping and hindering, that 2666Mhz is the best balance.

I basically made the same assumption (include taxes+fees in the $2k limit).

Go with the best cpu you can get and next is video card ( also make sure your power supply is good enough to handle the video card).  The ram speed is pretty stupid ( I mean you aren't going to see the different between 2666 Mhz DDR4 amd 2933 Mhz DDR4). It like 1 microsecond faster  who care.

The ram amount does matter though. Nowadays 8 GB ram is kind of lacking for some games so 16 GB slowly become a standard for gaming pc.

Thanks. that was what I was thinking, I just never get to play with a system build that costs this much.

I agree with the ram, even this FX8350 system has 16GB.
