Hi guys,

I am looking for a rig that is not stupidly overkill for 1080p gaming and can play even the most graphic intense games at 1080p at 60+ frames per sec.
I would also install a custom watercooling loop later once I get more cash so for now all I need for a cooler is something like a cooler master hyper 212 evo.

Also I will overclock so i would prefer a Asus Rog mobo and a good psu.
I am very sorry if this is time consuming but thank you for you help any ways.

PS This is only a build including desktop.
No OS, Mice, Keyboard, etc. Thnx :)

If you look at my signature it has everything listed in my build. I can run ANY game except the newest metro at 1920X1080P at 60 FPS consistently. I did not go overboard and spend any more $ than i had to so that build should be exactly what you are looking for. Keep in mind i got my R9 280X when it was 299.99 i dont know how much it has went up in price but ive heard some terrible numbers..

Here's a strong build. A ROG mobo is not needed, not worth the money.

There are a lot of good suggestions in this thread... though any build without an SSD should be tossed aside. The SSD won't really help you gaming, but it's a "user experience" booster... without one you might as well have an old school core2 or phenomII cpu.

I went with a build you should be able to overclock well... this 8 core fx at 4.0ghz will hit 60fps in anything... and with this hefty cpu cooler and quality MB you should be able to overclock it up fairly well...

So this build has a gpu you should get 60fps in 1080p in pretty much anything with, one that is high quality and overclocks well, a high end seasonic psu, and a high end Samsung ssd. Overall this build screams quality everywhere except for the case... which i picked for functionality and price rather then quality; that said it's still a solid case.
