my budget is 1500 hundred dollars including shipping and tax, this build at ncix would be about 1490 dollar shipped and taxed.
i want to play bf3, borderlands 2, minecraft, cs:go, garrys mod, maybe wow,maybe guild wars, basically i want it to be able to max out every game(or atleast high)
i will also be overclocking the cpu and graphics card, and i want it to be able to do sli in the future, i need a monitor and windows aswell. im in canada and ncix has the best prices here. i was looking at the gigabyte ud3h motherboard so would that be a better choice?

I don't really like the looks of this one. If you want a white case there's far better ones you could go with. I'd personally get the NZXT Phantom 410.

On a $1500 build *WITH* monitor and OS you can still get an SSD and HD without compromising the budget. Observe:

The $250 difference gives you a lot of room to add a monitor and whatever peripherals you want.

i would rather buy all my parts from one place as those prices are basically the same as ncix
except the motherboard, but with rebates the asus one is about 125 bucks

They're about the same board feature wise. The UD3H has extra USB 3.0 ports as well as eSATA and 1394.
