I have Graves and I like to play him alot, but I can't think of an item combo for him to deal maximum damage.
I currently use Berserker's Greaves, Phantom Dancer, Infinity Edge, Frozen Mallet, The Bloodthirster and Last Whisper, but I don't think that he reaches full potential with these items.
I've been thinking of replacing an item with Manamune or giving him the Atmog combo. For those of you who don't know what that is it's the combination of Atma's Impaler and Warmog's Armor. Could those items be good with Graves? Any other ideas?

I mostly go this build, 2x Doran's Blade, Berserker's Greaves, Wriggle's Lantern, Infinity Edge, Zeal and a The Black Cleaver (sell 1 of the doran's) usually works for me. The rest is situational.
There are stronger builds for higher damage output, but I like this build cause of the sustain and it has a strong mid game making you a bit harder to kill, and you are still able to deal high damage.

Ok, thanks, but I wanted a build on what items I should have when I'm maxed

I'd still throw manamune on him because I'm terrible with mana management.
I don't remember how much mana issues I had last time I played him so, maybe not.

What Duff said about Manamune. It's waaaaaaay inferior, damage-wise, to just adding another BT.

If you're looking to maximize damage, you won't want Atmog's. I'm not saying it's not good (it's dumb good), but it doesn't provide as much AD as pretty much any two items that're standard AD carry fare. Atmog's is great when you need to stay alive longer (and therefore do more damage), but isn't great for DPS on Graves.

To maximize damage, I'd suggest two Phantom Dancers, two of The Bloodthirster, an Infinity Edge, and either a Last Whisper or The Black Cleaver depending on enemy armor (meaning LW every time against non-stupid teams). Built like this, you'll have massive AD (you're building +320 or +335) and massive crits nearly all the time (93% crit chance with a green potion), but you'll have no survivability. So unless your team can make sure you stay alive, this isn't an ideal build; DPS is 0 when you're dead.
