Default building a new computer

HI, im building a new computer in 2 weeks.

I have $1400 dollars canadian currency.

I have a monitor,mouse, keyboard and speakers.

I would like a good recommendation on a good build.

I live really close to canadacomputers so that store would be conveinent plus the prices I find are cheaper than websites and you dont have to pay shipping.

www.canadacomputers.com

thanks.

Not sure, the website has literally no modern cases. They like to use ASUS, and they seem to be on the expensive side. I would suggest buying somewhere else.

1.) gage's build is perfect for your budget
2.) why would you need SLI? SLI just means it can run 2 video cards and with a $1400 budget, you can't stick another $500-600 in there, so there's no point in getting SLI
