Hi I'm new to this website and I was wondering what would be the ultimate gaming/editing PC for around $2000. Also how much more would I have to spend for something like a gtx 690. I don't want SLI cause I heard theirs a few problems that come with that. Prefer Nvidia iswell.
Thanks to anyone who can help me

A 690 would easily make you go over budget. For a single 1080p monitor a 690 is overkill.

A 690 is about 1000 bucks, about half your budget.

You'd be best off with a GTX 670 or a 7970ghz.

Okay this is for Australia, not everything is showing though in the price so you may need to find a few items yourself using whatever online stores you have there:

I will leave if you wanna go with a 670 or 690 up to you, 7970ghz is a good card.
