Solved

I'd like some help with a $1700 M-atx build including a monitor.

I've had to deal with this mac for a while now so i thought it was time for a huge change of pace.

I will be doing some video editing, gaming and a bunch of other graphically intensive goodness.

I will be overclocking.

I have never really liked big bulky systems, so i like Micro atx systems.

Parts i like:

SilverStone Sugo SG09 case

Hyper 212 EVO cpu cooler

I'd like this system to be $1700 AUD including a monitor.

    I couldn't find the case either but I found a pretty solid case as a substitute. I also went with the AMD R9 290. Its not far behind AMD's flagship 290x. It is more on the warm side as a chip and it can be a little louder but its a solid top tier performer I didn't see any after market coolers in Australia yet but if you wait they will be.

    And I also went with windows 7 more user friendly, and more compatible with programs, games, drivers, then 8 is.
