$2000 AUD Gaming Build

Hi all, I'm looking for a $2000 AUD gaming pc build that I could run most of the new titles at a good fps. The color scheme I am going for is a Red / Black theme because I think that will suit my room. The games that I am looking to play are Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Black ops 3, Ark, Rust, Arma 3 and Gta V and Farcry primal. So if you guys and girls have a good build for $2000 AUD, post it down below I would love to see what pc I should build.

Thanks, SinisterAce

P.S I did ask for a $1500 pc build, but that got me thinking I should just save $500 more and build a $2000 pc.

Similar to TankyKiller's suggestion. I went with a different case and CPU cooler and motherboard to match with the Red/Black theme of your build.

I am using a $1400 gaming PC (Including a monitor, keyboard and mouse), and it maxes all games at 1080P.

If you really want to spend $2000, I'd recommend this:

This PC will achieve 90FPS+ on ANY 1080P game at ultra settings. It would suffice as a decent video-editing/rendering PC thanks to its OC'able CPU and 16GB of RAM.

PS - I totally didn't make sure it costed exactly $2000 :D
