$3000 Gaming ROG themed build

Hey guys,

First of all, I want to thank you for taking your time for just browsing this thread. And any comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated :)

Country- New Zealand

Preferred websites- www.computerlounge.co.nz
- www.pbtech.co.nz
Parts preferences- Asus ROG (as it is a ROG themed build, but its near impossible to get ROG graphics cards down here...so anything good will do)

Budget rate- $3000-$3500

OC-Yes

SLI or Crossfire- Yes, in the future.

Parts not required- Mouse and keyboard

I'll be using this rig mostly for gaming (D3, Skyrim, Battlefield etc.) surfing the net and music. This will be my first build and i was hoping to get as much gaming performance available for the money i'm spending on it (hope that made any sense). I also want to know if the power supply will be enough as I will be adding another GPU in the future. I will also be running it on 2 monitors and be adding water cooling for the future. Again, I thank you for your time and any suggestions are welcome.

    I would get a 750Watt PSU instead other than that your build seems solid to me for what you want ROG themed build is not cheap. But, if it's just a top notch gaming rig you want than you could save quite a bit of money by going with a cheaper mobo also for gaming you don't need the i7 you want i5
  2. Thank you for the reply :) will change into i5 and a 750w PSU :)
