Good monitor please.
16GB Ram a must.
Thinking for 970 SLI.
And a Nice Case.

Components I have in mind :

i5 4690k
ASUS Pro Gamer / Asrock z97x killer.
16 gb kinston 1866Mhz (2*8)
1 TB Seagate + 120 GB Kingston SSD.
2 * Zotac 970.
Corsair RM 750. (850 if needed).
NZXT phantom 410.
No idea for monitor, keyboard, mouse.


death,destruction and dev
Intel i7 4790k-₹22,000.
Gigabyte z97x gamer 5-₹15,000.
Kingston hyperX fury 8GBx2-₹8,500.
Corsair 400r-₹5,500.
WD black 1TB-₹6,000.
Samsung ssd 850 evo 250GB-₹8,000.
Asus gtx 970 strix 4GB DDR5x2-₹53,000.
Corsair RM 750-₹8,500
Asus vg248qe-₹24,000.


Single GTX 980 would be better IMO. And since OP doesn't wants to OC, get i7 4770 or Xeon E3 1246 V3 instead of i7 4790k.

Get Logitech G series gaming kb + mouse for ~4k.

Thinking about rm750 or rm850?

Also, gainward 970 are bit cheaper. Will 2 of them fit in that motherboard.?

As I was digging a pc for exact same purpose for a friend I will suggest two options.
As for IPS 144hz monitor there is only one I could find Asus MG279Q which is 27inch 2k monitor. Price in uk is around 36k no idea about India.

About SLI yes its good but it is a similar to overclock is a hassle. There is little difference in performance(from 980ti)
Swap psu with RM 850 if going SLI with 970s. Yes all the motherboards mentioned are SLI capable. I mean all 3.
