Do you have a budget for the computer?

TIL that switzerland still uses the franc. I guess that's why you're economy isn't in the toilet like your euro using neighbors

You said you needed a computer that was powerful enough to run a TitanX down the line.
That statement + your budget confuses me. Because that's more than enough for a titan build.

So i put together this crazy monster.
Intel Core i5-6600K, Asus GeForce GTX Titan X, Fractal Design Define R4 w/Window (Black Pearl) - System Build - PCPartPicker
  • 512gig Samsung SSD (reliable and fast. You could also go for a M.2 SSD instead. That's up to you)
  • Rocking the TitanX graphic card you wanted.
  • Feature packed motherboard with great OC capability and great design.
  • Gen6 unlocked Core-I5 CPU with a closed loop water cooler.
  • 2x4 gig of RAM
  • One of the best PSU's under 1000W on the market.
  • A popular and good looking case

Total Price 2000 USD.

Doesn't have an optical drive. You can add one if you like. But i'll recommend getting a USB CD drive instead.

Some people actually do need a titan X. But for most people it's an overkill GPU.
How about a GTX 970? Much cheaper and still kick ass. You might also want to wait for Nvidia's new lineup of GPU's. Gonna be released Q2 or Q3 this year.

Can you post the specs properly?
Maybe a link to the mashine?
