Im looking for a hardcore gaming rig build. I WANT to spend $2000-$2300 AUD, so no budgeting under or over that please. I live in Australia so i will be using PCPartPicker AU. And i also really want to be able to use Eyefinity (Would love 2x 7970's even if it is a little over kill).

If you want to hook me up with suggestions cheers, If not all good.

(I currently have a 2TB HDD, Monitor(s), Keyboard+Mouse and i only game with my Astro a50's)

Look forward to seeing your decisions on my final build(Will be buying within the next few days)

^RAM/OSS wasn't added to cost

Fairly similar to the other builds


I had RAM in my build. But there's another bug in PC Part Picker where it doesn't have all the parts for all the countries. That RAM you picked out should be low profile.

Fixing:
