Solid Gaming Build in NZD?

Due to a really high USD/NZD exchange rate I have to pay so much tax to get a computer to be shipped and imported. I really need your help on making a new custom pc build. Budget: NZD$2500 and if you want I won't mind a US$1300~ build. 

 

Uses:

Gaming

Some Video Editing

Some Video Rendering

 

Requirements:

Peripherals-FPS Gaming

144hz 1ms monitor

Within budget 

Pair of closed headphones (w/ or w/o mic)

SSD/HDD combo.

 

Thank you to everyone for helping and I understand if this is difficult. This budget combined with everything I need is not much to work with. Please note: No OS or Optical drive needed.

 

Again thank you to everyone

Do you play football/soccer?

Yeah I thought about as much. Could you do any better with 2500?

Here you go, bare in mind that the monitor is not 144Hz, since theyre a lot more expensive. But this is honestly a worthy setup, those peripherals are top notch as well, both are very popular and well built.

Pretty much the same as the other builds but with the monitor you said you wanted and some peripherals

-You don't need a CPU cooler on a Xeon

-For what it's worth i'd always get a 250GB SSD over a 120
