Hi everyone, I am interested in building my own Gaming PC, my budget is $2000-$2500 which ideally would include monitors and an OS. I would be using it for fairly high res gaming on multiple monitors and a bit of dabbling in photo/video editing. If anyone could give me a build plan for me to purchase I would be appreciative. Please note I live in Australia so prices are annoyingly high :(  I would prefer to use PC case gear but anything off PC part picker Australia should be fine
Also finaly I like the look of the NZXT Phantom 820 white probs with a light blue lighting setup, so that is the kind of colour scheme I like :D 
One last thing I prefer nvidia over ATI and NO AMD CPU's ;) 
Thanks
Mcdonh

First of all your lacking
1.Monitor
2.OS (Operating system) (Windows,Mac)
3. SLI 770 GTX will give you more volume in gigs which is useless in every sense in this build. Single 780ti will over run 2 way SLI 770 in FPS, multi monitor setup.3GB will run any 144hrz 3 monitor setup very well so no need of 8 GBS of volume.its an overkill on old tech and waste of money.
4. 8 gigs of 1600FSB ram is not even a good option for good video dobbing+rendering.you need 16 gigs of atleast 1800Mhz for better performance.
5. 850 Watt PSU for what? he is just using his computer not running his room A.C on computer LOL.
if you see your rig is using only 660 watts and even if he put 10 more 140 mm fans in casing and led belts it will not reach 750 watts.
660 watts only because of SLI setup .i did cleared its any overkill and useless one.
your PSU cost 238$ this much for an respectively non-productive part.
And SSD is not needed at all.a 7200 rpm HDD will work fine.
6. the want an full ATX 820 White case.

please don't display ur ignorance by abusing others
1. OK, i agree i missed the monitor and OS, that was a mistake on my part, but why do u say Windows/Mac. do u really expect him to run Mac on it?
2. SLI 770 is really equivalent to OCed GTX690, which even at stock is faster than the 780Ti, besides nVidia artifically cripples the compute performance of that card. also 3GB might sound enough for now but given the amount he's putting down he wouldn't wanna upgrade in a year just because his GPU ran out of RAM. and just for ur info in SLI the total VRAM doesn't double so its still 4GB
3. he said the system is for gaming with OCCASIONAL LIGHT video editing, and having it at 2133 would drive the voltage way above 1.5 that is the sweet spot for Intel CPUs
4. those 850W PSUs are on the market for a reason other than running room ACs, and the 770 is about as power hungry as (single GPU) cards get,
PSU is certainly not a non-productive part, u don't wan't ur system going up in flames due to a bad PSU
5. have u used an SSD?
6. he asked for a case with a similar colour scheme, not exactly that one, and here i would bring ur argument of spending 260$ on a non-productive part

First of all i did not abuse anyone here.
Mac or windows was used for your information mostly people don't know what is an OS. so i had explained that.(Clear?)
i had explained GPU part before and what you are saying about 690 and 770 SLI and about the performance of a GTX-780ti + need of upgrade in one year i can totally understand your knowledge about these three cards atleast and for all other Nvida cards as normal.so i will not argue on that. i recommend you to use all three of them atleast a month each then tell me if i was wrong.(i'm still on my point and i'm right i know)
PSU i had suggested is not a bad quality PSU its a very fine product i'm a fan of corsair but where we need to cripple the budget and also have to find a better PSU then we have to look at Seasonic or XFX. so system will not be on flames.
850 watts are in the market for reason i agree but that reason is not here in this rig at all. (i'm still on my point its an Overkill)
2133 ram is need for better results i said that and NO your wrong there will not be a voltage issue.(i know what i'm giving him)
SSD in system like this is an overkill. if you know about SSD inside out then you will never asked me this question(do some research)
Casing is a personal choice of OP and if he mentioned one then you have to follow that even it cost you 500$. it matters what parts an OP want.you have to respect his wish rather then imposing what you like.
on parts he gave us freedom we did but where he want something he have to put that part in a rig.
i think everything is clear now.
Tell me one thing. if you were totally sure about what you suggested then why you felt abused ?????? even a blind man can tell there is no abusive thing in my post i just pointed out your mistakes.

alrighty there seems to have been allot of argument going on here so lets get some things cleared up. First I would like an SSD and a HDD preferably, second I am actually very knowledgeable on the subject of pc building I just wanted some options other than my build which seems to have a habit of trying to go over my budget, 2 770's overclocked could actually probably out perform a 780ti in the right circumstances however it would be easier to go with a single 780ti, I liked the 820 because of the colour scheme and the lighting options and well...it is pretty damn good case. you guys stop arguing like children. and finally ckmu I was hoping to get a bit of a 3 monitor setup but if I can't do that 1 widescreen would be fine, I can get more later
