Hello guys, I'm planning on making my first build and I'm not going cheap. I'm creating it around the ASUS RoG line becuase I think those parts look badass with the black and red. My budget is 2500-3000$ with some money left for a decent mic, headphones and webcam. When I'm finished with this build I plan on buying two 23' monitors and another set of 2x8GB ram sticks to cap out. Any feedback is welcomed, but an explanation would be nice as to why you think this part is better then the one I picked. Everything is in Canadian dollars.

*PLEASE NOTE* The prices shown are without tax. With the Ontario HST tax, the total comes to $2803.53 (not including recycling fees/green tax becuase I have no clue what that is help please? lol)

I use the Kraken, Maybe you should change it out? I think it may be just bit cheaper. But just as good.

@|Fever| Pyu I currently have a ASUS 27' LED 1080p monitor /w built in webcam (don't remember the model number). I plan on getting later on down the road another 780ti for SLI Crossfire, then two 23 or 24' monitors.

@|Fever| Rilka The peripherals are secondary right now. After I've bought the main components then I'l buy them. With that said I was going for the kraken. I really like the nuclear waste green color of the headset.

I removed the peripherals because I can get those later. I calculated tax for each individual part and updated the list. I have 300$ left over to upgrade existing parts or get another set of 2x8GB Ram sticks.
