    It is REALLY overpriced. My advice would be to build your computer yourself, these premade computers are usually either shit, unbalanced or overpriced.

    If you want to play with a computer, you don't need an i7. You also probably do not need an ultra-high end motherboard. Buying this computer would be a HUGE waste of money.

    (But yes, even if it is not released yet I can tell you that this computer will run GTA V easily)

    You are right. this pc is too expensive.

    But I replace computers every 10 years, so I want to buy the best I can. So in 10 years from now it's still could run new softwares and games.

    i can buy a ps3\ps4 to play gta v (much cheaper option) but i am nintendo fan and i hate sony. and xbox is boring. the wii u is capable to run gta v. why isn't it released on the wii u?

    It costs about 1600$ to make it urself so the answer is no.
    + you need a Cooler for the CPU cause it seems it doesn't come with it.
    And ur getting offtopic with "why isn't GTAV coming to Wii U "

    The answer is obvious, cause its GTA, it won't ever come to Nintendo consoles especially the Wii U.

    You don't have to justify over buying a gaming rig. PC is by far the best gaming platform.

    Now, the raw power per dollar ratio isn't linear. By buying an i7 instead of an i5 you'll spend way more money for maybe, max 5% more FPS.

    It's even worse for the motherboard: Spending an outrageous price of 300+$ for a motherboard will not get you more performance. There is literally 0% difference between a low-mid end motherboard and a high end one. The differences are mostly features you will probably never use.

    If you have 2700$ to spend on a computer, then good for you: That means you can buy a 1350$ computer today, and buy another, better computer for 1350$ in 5 years. This way you'll be able to play all the latest games in very high resolution instead of keeping a rig that will barely work.

    But you'll not be able to keep your computer longer because you spend way more money in it. It doesn't work that way, I can't stress it enough. Technologies evolve, and in 5 years your computer will not be great at running games.

    And if you want an high end computer, you will probably want to get a SSD with your HDD.

    this is not all pc specs. only the important ones.
    here are the rest:

    Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 CPU Cooler
    Corsair Force LX CSSD-F256GBLX 256GB SSD Sata III MLC Retail
    Samsung SH-224DB/BSBS DVD±RW x24 Black Sata
    Antec 750W Active PFC Modular 80+ Bronze HCG-750M PSU

    and pc case: CoolerMaster Cosmos II RC-1200-KKN1 Midnight Black Full Tower ATX Case No PSU

    also i dont live in europe or usa so i cant get the pc cheaper. (even on ebay this pc cost close to this price).

    but i think i downgrade the gpu. from 780ti to 770 or 760 to save myself 300$.

    and as i said i do not going to buy this pc now. only next year. Maybe next year the pc would be cheaper.

    thanks to everyone and goodbye.

    wow they are overpricing this build! Also, why the hell would a $2700 build come with a Bronze certified PSU? Listen to everyone here and build a PC yourself. Unless your country (Israel) has way overpriced PC parts, I wouldn't call this a deal by any means.

    Does it have custom wiring job (sleeving cables)?

    Overpriced, yes. But is this the price you will be paying to import this PC into Israel?

    In the first place, I would question why you're getting a Haswell-E system to play GTA when just getting a Haswell/Refresh/Devils Canyon system will have identical performance at half the price. With the same graphics card, a Core i5-4690K, and a Z97 motherboard... Actually, no. I'll not draw up a list of parts this time. I don't know what the market is like in that country that might affect availability and price of parts.

    Also, Shuny, there is a difference in performance between low and high end motherboards. In some motherboards, the difference can be quite extreme. However when looking for the best value in parts, it's better to look at the features rather than benchmarks (since midrange motherboards have near identical performance). I also never recommend getting a cheap motherboard, since I've seen too many of them die in the first year. The PSU and motherboard are two parts I never compromise on.

    Not to derail this topic but you hate Sony and think Xbox is boring, yet you want games like GTA? That's never going to be on the Wii U.

    There's nothing wrong with Sony's PlayStation consoles or Microsoft's Xbox consoles. Also, you're missing out a lot of awesome PlayStation exclusives with that attitude.

    A little more you can get 5960x(I truly suggest you to wait for 14 nm boardwell desktop i7, and it should come with z107 and cheap ddr4,for now you could just have a pentium and a z97 which is compatible with 5th generation i7 and ddr4) and 2-way gtx 980(this thing will be able to power up any virtual reality game)
    And i7 extreme is not really woth the price, and will be proven to be less powerful than 5790k
