Well, I hate to say but it's really hard to give you a good build, because there would be so many options. In my signature is my current pc, which is about 2-3 years old. It can still run, for example, GTA V in almost highest quality settings.
The most important things are your graphics card, your CPU and memory. If you have something better than a GTX 580 (600, 900 etc.) and something better than a QuadCore with at least 3GHZ per core, you're good to go I'd say. You won't even need a quad core anyway. A very good dual core should be enough too, but nowadays you won't get dual cores anymore anway.
Memory should be above or equal 4GB with a 64bit OS.
These SSD's are new tech for me. Do you just install the OS on them? Or, do you install and run games from them too?
You should install the OS, heavy programs like editing and such and games on the ssd. Keep music, videos, photos and everything that takes up a lot of storage on a separate cheap 1-2 TB hard drive. Also install as many programs as possible on the ssd but leave some gigabytes free for cached temporary memory and such. Thats my thoughts and what i have been recommended in turn
Is there anybody out there? Or am I all alone in no man's sky?
Well in the end I would like to be able to run triple 4k monitors at 60 fps
You're looking at more like double that budget for a system which does that. Even then it'll depend on drivers for the game you want to play and you'll get very varied framerates depending on what game you're running.
I would opt for at least double GTX 980ti's in SLI and 32 gigs of DDR4 RAM with an i7 k series CPU properly overclocked. Also you'll want a fast SSD for your boot drive at least. I would probably go for an SSD for games too.

I just "built/configured" my first custom laptop on pc specialists for uni (I'm a filmmaker as well and need a powerful laptop for mobile HD multi-cam- live/post-editing.
relevant to space and shit, a short I made about a year and a bit ago - ) but I'll be waiting for fallout 4 and NMS to play

Battery life is max about 2.5 hours but might be less with hardcore usage.
What do you guys and other genders think? Is this good as I think it is (it comes next week) PRICE = £1008 + £200 VAT / roughly $1800
Okay saving up for a new pc at the moment. Here are some details.
I'll buy it off from a good friend and I'm gonna upgrade it to a monster.
I'll get a Dell Flagship mainboard with 2 cpu slots (one in use) with an Intel Xeon X5460 (Quadcore 3,16ghz), 12 GB DDR-2 Fully Buffered Server RAM (Pretty much DDR-3 performance), 500 GB HDD and a case. I'll upgrade the PC to Octacore with buying a second CPU (approximately 90€ with heatsink) and an SSD for windows (120gb). The last thing is a Zotac Geforce GTX 970 for 300€. BAM! Awesome Octacore Gaming pc for under 700€
Man that's awesome! Can games even use that many cores yet? Going to do some video rendering and stuff on it as well?
You're right, the maximum is quadcore for games but I'm sure that'll change in the next years. Also, the general performance with octacore is just insane. And yes I'll use it for my 3D renders. That's very handy
