This amazing setup I made is gonna be bought for my brother, he loves gaming and since he saw my other video-editing computer setup I worked in he asked me to do this. So here it is, $3000 budget setup, a monitor, keyboard, mouse, headset and beautiful computer in a nice case

For people wondering, I just went for 16GB of RAM at 2400 MHz not only because the price was really low as this is gonna be used to render 1080p videos.

I think you should aim for a 144hz monitor, or aim for a second monitor for this setup. 2-way SLI GTX 780 TI seems pretty overkill for a single 60hz monitor. Hell, even a single GTX 780 TI would be pretty overkill for a single 60hz monitor.

Yeah, we have a 144Hz 27 inch monitor already, this is gonna be a second monitor

If that's the case, your build seems perfectly fine. Not much to say about a solid build.

Ahah nice then, I just hope it runs major games like Watch Dogs in Ultra or such...

Apparently, one GTX 780 TI can run Watch Dogs on Ultra and hit 60FPS. I'm pretty sure your SLI will handle anything you throw at it.
