i was recommended to get an i7 cpu from a friend.
thats about as far as i got, need to make sure i can get wifi card, and have a blu-ray optical drive. also, hoping to have room to add another gpu later and possibly upgrade the ram.
1tb (max) hdd would be nice too for video/music storage.

i would prefer to have a black/blue case as well~

also i will be using my 32" hdtv as monitor

Here is a great build for just over $1400. It already contains dual-GPUs, and has very nice Corsair RAM. It also has a great, windowed case and a Corsair Professional PSU. It contains an SSD for OS and games, as well as a 1TB HDD for all of your documents, etc. Overall, a spectacular build. :)

Then you can switch the case out for one that you like; I don't know all of your favorite personal preferences. You can also just grab a Blu-Ray drive; the LG Black 14X is fine, for like $30 more than the one posted.
