Hello people i am here asking what should i do. In the build i originally planned on using the Asus ROG Maximus VII Formula, the Asus ROG

Swift PG278Q & for power supply it would have been the Corsair HXi 1000w psu form what i saw it's speculated price is $229.99. The VII

Formula,Swift & HXi of course have not come out yet & are expensive $799.99 for Swift hopefully not true or they are continuing discussion

about maybe a lower price tag of $699.99 maybe and there has not been a price announcement that i know of but i'm thinking $269.99-

$324.99 on the VII Formula. I only suggested that price since the VII Hero is around $220. If they put it at $250 OMG but that is not likely.

I want some other options for parts. For my pc i want it to able to do excellent in all areas of where i will be using the PC gaming at 2560p

hopefully, a chance of audio/video editing and your general web surfing. I am trying to get top tier parts in all parts of the build long as i

can agree with the price. The Build:PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
