Hello everyone, I was just wondering who could give me the best gaming build for $3000(AUD) as stated in title. If you haven't figured that i'm in Australia, I am so parts cost a little more over here.

P.S. I would rather 780 than 770.

Thanks, Luke.

All of this is available at PC Case Gear at roughly the same prices, which is where I recommend you buy your parts. Reason I just dont have it set too PC Case Gear is because PartPicker is a bit screwy for Australian stores and doesn't recognize stock.

Main reason for the water-cooling as in terms of hardware, you cant really justify getting more than that. You could SLI another 780 in, but that would require a beastly display setup to really take advantage of it. Arguably even a single 780 is overkill for 1080p gaming.

If you decide to go down the custom water route, I can help you with that.

Yes I will be gaming at 1080p and I plan on doing an overclock to at least 4.2GHz.

Again, Part Picker is a bit screwy with Australian stores, doesn't give the option of Win7 Home Premium 64bit.
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...
Though I do still recommend you go with Win8, you can download 3rd party programs that basically return it to Win7 in regards to the user interface, and it has a lot of back-end upgrades that do make a difference.

This is the best gaming build that you can build for that price. It has i5 4770K, ASRock Z87 Extreme6 Mobo, Corsair 110, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD + 2TB HDD, the best 780 out there by EVGA, Corsair 650D Case, and everything anyone would ever need.

Now let me describe the parts :

CPU : The i7 4770K is the best CPU out there. Nothing more to describe here, nothing beats it.
GPU : The 2nd best Single GPU card (a little after the Titan), but the Titan is Ridiculously Overpriced.
RAM : 16GB should be enough. If not enough then grab 32GB's of it
Storage : Use the 250GB SSD for Operating System and use the 2TB HDD for storing your data.
Corsair 650D : One of the best cases out there. You will love it, really it is Beautiful, Classy and Awesome
PSU : The Corsair Platinum PSU is one of the best out there. It is fully modular and would go with the colour scheme of the build.
Motherboard : It has everything. 10 Sata 6GB/sec ports, ..., ..., ..., .... and ...... everything you might need. And of course it goes with the colour scheme of the build. Black and Gray

Now the Case Fans :
BitFenix Spectre Pro LED 148.7 CFM 200mm Fan : Use this as the Intake, very efficient and extremely quiet.

Corsair Air Series AF120 Performance Edition (2-Pack) 63.5 CFM 120mm Fans : Use this for the Water Cooler Radiator. The aftermarket fans are always better at this stuff.

Silverstone FHP-141 171.0 CFM 140mm Fan : Use this as the exhaust from in the back of the case. This is a really good Fan with CFM of 171. Insanely high for a 140mm fan. And again, it goes with the colour scheme of the build.

With this you now have a master computer which can do anything you want it to. It would do anything and it is a personal dream of mine. The Black colour scheme also looks awesome. If you want to go for another Motherboard to match the colour scheme even more then feel free to do that, but just ask in this thread if you want to change the Motherboard. This build is a beast and would do anything a computer can. Really anything.

If you think that the answer helped, then don't forget to select it as the best answer. It would be highly appreciated by me.

I would say so only because its the most expensive. Any of the other builds suggested so far are cheaper and will get the same gaming performance and still give you the ability to get two 780's in SLI.
Knock the water-cooling off my build and replace it with that H220, you can have the same performance and capabilities for ~$2150.

Similar powered build can be made for much less, but that is not the point of building a beast. Is it?

Have a look at the much cheaper but similar powered build just to prove my point. It has the power but it is not as Awesome as the above builds. Is it?

I think the simplest water cooling set up for your configuration would be a Swiftech H220 and any Titan full cover block will fit the GTX-780, or could go with a EVGA Hydro Copper installed if you can find one.
The H220 is ~$140, 780 blocks are ~$150, 6 compression fittings ~$40, = $330, add a 120 radiator for ~$40 or a 240 for ~$50. Total cost with additional 240 radiator ~$380.

I can understand building an awesome rig and burning through cash, but do it in a way that isn't just throwing money away. I hit a point at ~$2000 where spending more on hardware just wouldn't benefit you, the only way to spend more and still receive some benefit was water-cooling.

The rig I proposed if you knocked off the water is still pretty beastly, its not like I'm proposing maximum performance at the bare minimum price here. Just if you dont really need to spend the cash, just dont.
Hell, knock the water off my build and you have $1000 to play with. Get yourself a 1440p screen or a Surround setup, thats how you will get the true value of that 780 (especially if you SLI later on).

Spend your cash wisely, dont just spend it.

Hello everyone, I was just wondering who could give me the best gaming build for $3000(AUD) as stated in title. If you haven't figured that i'm in Australia, I am so parts cost a little more over here.

P.S. I would rather 780 than 770.

Thanks, Luke.


For 3000 AUS Dollars, I still have a spectrum plus 3 in my loft, if you are interested ..It has the 3.5 inch floppy drive, and some games, and a screen gun and everything! .
(Dont report me, its a joke. . Mind you, I might take £75)

I know. ;)  I'm gonna just wait and see if Australia gets the Classified before I get all my parts, if not I'll just get the superclocked and get express shipping!

UPDATE!

I have all of the parts except the GPU but I have purchased the SC 780 which will probably (and hopefully:lol: ) arrive on Monday or Tuesday. I will post pics shortly!

Edit: didn't realise it was 6 AM over there! LOL

Most parts in their boxes:




Please note that I already installed the RAM and HDD and SSD. Thats why some aren't in the picture, forgot to do it straight away. Sorry :( 

And here is the case with side off.

That made me laugh! :lol: 

Only got to install them as I had to go to work I'm going to continue tomorrow though I'll probably upload pics after I get back from work tomorrow from what I did before I went to work. Hopefully makes sense!

Hello again I'm pretty sure i've installed everything but the GPU.

I have installed the H220 AIO Cooler but it's hitting the RAM. Is this alright?
