building new comp budget not alot not $1500 new to this as first build. done a fair bit of research thinking about buying asap.
using for high end gaming interested in future sli and making future proof.
also thinking about connecting up to 40inch t.v.
as u can see im obviously way off my budget (if i get a vga) maybe can ride on intel graphics for a while
Any recommendations with price/performance im all ears.

hdmi for 40inch t.v 1920x1080 (not a problem if i get vga)
Internal usb 3.0 for front panel
pcie 3.0 with ivy bridge (was thinking future proofing not essential if can go cheaper!) http://pconlineshop.co.nz/pcshop/product_info.php?produ...
