I am going to order within the next week, I was considering waiting for the 780ti to come out but... thats going to be a additional $300 as it is and im already starting to get uncomfortable with going over my original $2500 goal, but this is what will ultimately make me happy with my new system.

This is where i am, if anyone has any suggestions especially to save money or better components for less or not much more, let me know!

if you're going to be mainly doing a lot of gaming and want to lower the price a bit you can switch your CPU out for the 4670k and you'll be more than satisfied. Also, if you're not going to be doing much overclocking you could switch from the Hero mobo to a more mainstream mobo and the i5 4670. if you are going to be doing alot of heavy overclocking and want to stay with a corsair PSU you could think about going with the corsair HX1050 PSU, though you should be fine with the 850w, i just like having the higher power head room ( just what i would do concerning power).

I will definitely be overclocking it to at least 4ghz so that's my reasoning for that... I'm considering the i5 as well just concerned with next gen games supporting hyper threading

Yea i feel that that could be a legitimate concern. There's also the option to get the i5 now to lower the initial price and then upgrade the an i7 later on when there's a title that comes out that has that feature and sell the i5 on craig's list ebay or w/e
