My parts chosen are:

Case: NZXT Phantom 820 Matte Black
CPU: Intel i7 4770K
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (2x8GB)
HDD: WD Black SATA3 1TB
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Motherboard: ASUS Maximus VI Formula
Graphics Card: MSI Lightning GTX 780
PSU: Corsair AX860
Optical Drive: Asus 24x Burner
CPU Cooler: Swiftech H320 Liquid Cooler


This is the final build I have decided on and i've done a fair bit of research to pick out my parts. I know that some of the stuff is unessecary, but I can get it cheaper than most people. Wasn't sure if I should get another drive or replace some of the stock NZXT fans? Thoughts and/or any possible improvements?

If your budget is $3000 you should go for a custom liquid cooling system and a SLI

Only problem is that a) I'm in Australia, so this sits on $3000 pretty much exactly, as well as the fact that I was going to buy another two monitors> Also, since this was my first build, I kinda wanted to go for something easier than watercooling, so I could put it together myself.

this build is not overkill at all, its quite basic gamer, even tho you got a small ssd in there, get 500gb ssd and skip the hhd, add another 500 later if needed. or get i5 4670.

Wasn't sure whether I should buy the maximum VI extreme instead, because of the OC panel and slightly better operation....
