1080p gaming system for next 2-3 years

Hello everyone,
I am looking for help with a completely new system that will be capable of playing most games at the highest settings for the next few years.

I most likely won't be overclocking, but may consider it in the future if a system setup is not much extra money - say 10% extra cost.

This is the first computer I am going to be building myself. I'd like a case that has good airflow, low noise, is easy to setup, and looks good.

My budget is around 1500-2000 and I currently live in Australia.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks for the quick reply smorizio.
For a beginner will the setup you posted be easy to manage overclocking when I eventually get around to it? I have never done it before and don't want to kill any new components through trial and error. Also, by not including a gpu in your build does that mean you expect the new nvidia gpu to drop prices? I presume any new product will be released at a very high cost.

Cheers

Thanks AxiFone.

asus mb with the efi bios are easy to over clock also with the rog line of gaming mb there more free overclock software with the mb. the new nvidia maxwell (800) line of gpu intill the nda is lifted or there more leaks. it hard to tell what kind of performance the newer gpu have over the older ones. when the 800 line does come out the older cards will drop in price.
who would pay full price for a slower gpu??

Cheaper alternative:

Perfect for moderate overclocking, but not for running sli or crossfire. I'm only not sure for the graphic card, you could wait for the new Nvidia cards or go with either the r9 280x or r9 290 . I would personally go with the 280x because of the cooling. But if you really want to max every single game out @1080p you want to go for cards like r9 290x or gtx 780, but if not the 280x will do fine in high/ultra settings.

No case, get what you like. I prefer plain black with lots of vents.

If this were me I would settle for a GTX770 and save 200 dollars.

Look price of R9 270X do CF and you get better power with less money.

Gigabyte mobo X-D3H is really good and it is usuaaly cheaper than asus. And it will OC just as much as asus similar mobos.
OC depends more CPU and cooling than mobp.
Any Z87 can OC enough your CPU. Just take good cooler.
