I need everything except the monitor, so a keyboard,mouse, and os has to be installed. I want the ROG Maximus 7 atx motherboard from asus and the gtx 980. If there is any other mobo like the ROG but cheaper please let me know. I like it but the price is a lot so im looking for a mobo similar to it. Thnx

I would beg to differ my friend.

I guess you could sacrifice the SSD, extra case fans, get a noisy and less efficient psu, cheaper peripherals and squeeze in a 980 for just $70 over $1300. :)

Here's my suggestion: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/4Y74Lk

Just to let you know. You can get a GTX 980.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask me :P
