Can someone recommend a PC build using PC partpicker or a fully complete desktop to buy?

I've been looking and my plan is to either go:
1) All out ~$2500
2) Super cheap and wait 1-2 more years (<$700)

I haven't seen any good deals either way (or at least I think so), sort of at a loss now.

Update for the RAM, for $10 more than the earlier Corsair posted Amazon now has the 3200:

I'm really feeling like these aren't super deals for building a mid level gaming rig but my 2500k rig is being pushed to the max these days. Unfortunately I worry this will be the best time for deals for awhile :(

Nice found.
Yep CPU & RAM will be more expensive next year.

Over your budget, but can be cut down if downgrade for RAM & SSD. Since the BF sales are almost over. Some parts have no deals...
I put this together on pcpartspicker and it shows some parts are not compatible - am I doing something wrong?

Any recommended changes to my parametric filters/other recommendations based on cyber monday deals?

Again - thank you so much for your help!!!!

Bought myself the RAM I posted and picked up the Samsung 850 EVO SSD for 179.99 at BestBuy (after shipping at CC it would have been only $10 cheaper and backordered). Wish I lived in a market with a CC store, that deal for the 960 Pro was by far the best PC component deal this Black Friday. I'm gonna hold off on the rest of my build and watch prices between now and Boxing Day, also hoping for Intel to get some stock in on their CL I7's as well as some more reliable reviews on them.

thanks OP for compiling this thread, was a great starting point for me this weekend.

Can someone please update the configuration? Is this a good time or rather wait for new GPUs next trimester?
