Hey all,

Here's what I got so far.. This rig will be for pretty much nothing but Gaming but at the best possible specs.. Games in mind right now are: Battlefield 4, Assassin Creed 4 and Titanfall (March 14 release)

Im planning on ordering all these parts from a specific shop in Australia, PC Case Gear. So when making your reference please consider that.

GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 780 Gaming Edition 3GB $699.00
Processor: Intel Core i5 3570K $264.00
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit with SP1 OEM $109.00
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO Series 120GB SSD $109.00
HD: Western Digital WD Green 1TB WD10EZRX $69.00
Memory: Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 $115.00
Case: BitFenix Prodigy M Case Black $119.00
Total so far: 1484$

Now Im missing so far: a Motherboard, a PSU and extra fans..
Please keep in mind I would like one day to possibly add a SLI GPU (instead of buying whatever is the best in that time just throw a SLI).. Also I need to have WiFi (either comes with the motherboard or suggest a card please)..

Thanks all

Hey mate thanks for the reply but like I said, I can only order from a specific shop in Australia.
I changed the setting to my Australian shop but unfortunately it does not have the PSU. Which other PSU would you recommend?

As for the HD, is that an extra HD you suggest or a replacement for the one I listed? Because yours is 99$ and the one I put down is 69$.

And another big issue is that Motherboard you mentioned does not support the Intel i53570k processor (according to PCpartpicker).. So I changed the processor to i5 4670k, any thoughts?

Thanks mate

Heres what we got so far:

its tough to choose components for you when i dont know what stock the store you are buying your components has.

for a motherboard, go with asus or gigabyte and get a z77, for psu go with seasonic, some antec and xfx psu's use seasonic components so they are good too, the caviar black is a good drive, its fast and has 2 processors on it instead of one, and doesnt go into sleep mode. for me worth the extra $30.

hope this helps!
