For the GPU I'm gonna use Dual Hydro Copper GTX 780s Overclocked (Still figuring out how mucj overclocked)And I'm gonna use a Custom Loop (Custom Water Cooler) for both GPU & CPUs.I'm gonna be playing games like The Battlefield Series,The Far Cry Series,The Medal Of Honor Series,The Assasins Creed Series,The Dead Rising Series,The Crysis Series,The Grand Theft Auto Series,The BioShock Series,The Mirrors Edge Series,The Elder Scrolls Series,The Mass Effect Series,The Saints Row Series,The Resident Evil Series,The Batman Series,The Hitman Series,And Other Big AAA Games.The Specifactions I'm looking for the CPU is a CPU that is future proof maybe 1 or 2 Years Or Longer,A CPU that has a long Warranty or Lifetime Warranty,A CPU that can Max (Basiclly Ultra settings),A CPU that is Water Proof or A Water Block (Cause remember I'm gonna use a custom loop/Water Cooling)(Also if there is a water proof CPU),A CPU Good for FPS,TPS (Thirdpersonshooters or Thirdperson games),MMORPG (League Of Legends,And Dota 2),And RPG Games,And A CPU that can overclock maybe as high as 4.8Ghz or 4.7Ghz or even 4.6Ghz.

For overclocking amd is the best so I recommend the fx 8350, 9370 or the 9590.

The 3930k is one of the best CPUs on the market today. It will be great for any PC in which your budget permits(which it seems like it does!). I'd go with this. The only better CPU is really the i7-3970X, the most powerful consumer CPU on the market. This is nearly as good and costs much less though. It will suffice for your needs.

At that budget Intel is the only option. I seriously love AMD, but gotta be reasonable.

Go for Intel Cpu for gaming over amd it will perform slightly better for sure and overclocking performance of intel i5 (i dont knw i7's) is very good and as for strict gaming The i7 will give you zero extra performance for games over the i5. you can invest the saved money on better grapix or motherboard or cooling.

Because the six core IB-E isn't out yet anyways.
