Ive been researching for a few weeks now on what i plan on getting for the motherboard first but i can not pick just one!

I plan on spending $800 and id prefer an intel cpu i5 or i7 but again i cant decide on anything as this in my first build but i do know alot about all the components and pcs in general. I have a 3d monitor with hdmi or dvi connect and would like to have 3 displays i have another 2 average displays for work n what not.

This will not really be used for games but i would like to be able to play games at 1080p without any worries about lag issues but im sure that i would like a nvidia brand graphics card as there 3d is top of the range n amd does not compare in my own opinion.

Im not to worried about overclocking or tweaking as this will be for work, personal use for 3d movies blu ray movies and 1080p gaming. I dont want to miss anything so i thought someone could help with getting me started.

I have $800 to play with me so please give me your ideas!!

The GPU is switchable if you like. You could pay a Little more and get a Radeon 7950 and still remain within your budget. Both GPUs would do great. :) 

MIND THAT: this system contains an OS, if you don't need an OS, then a lot of oppurtunities regarding performance could be considerably upgraded.

I like bigcyco1's build, but I would go for a better motherboard.
