M not into Extreme overclocking but I love gaming and have basic information about hardware.. Enough to assemble and I need help picking the parts.

My main priority is that it should run Oculus rift very shoothly as my kids are going to be playing it and I have heard low FPS can make u feel noxious.



Will wait for the kaby lake to get released.
So the prices might hopefully dip.


Parts I need...
CPU
Graphics card
Ram
Mob.
PSU
Case ( mid tower)
Ssd.
I have 3tb of HDD

Cannot extend budget ..And Oculus not included in this 2000$

You really don't need to spend that much.

Something like this would do well. I suppose you could step up to a 1TB SSD if you like. And of course the case choice depends on your preference.
