Its been 2 years since my last build and ive managed to save back $2,000.00 (I can go more if needed), so its time to put it towards a good use ;)  I'm a gamer (Stalker addict) so that's my first priority, other than that ill use it for converting movies and photoshop. I will be overclocking this build too.

What i put together so far:

-COOLER MASTER HAF 922 RC-922M-KKN1-GP Black Steel + Plastic and Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

-CORSAIR CMPSU-850HX 850W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

-Intel Core i7-930 2.8GHz LGA 1366 Quad-Core Desktop Processor

-Thermalright CoGage True Spirit 4-Heatpipe Core i7 CPU Cooler

-ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

-G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory

-SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

-HD 5970

That's what i got so far and leaves me with 2 things i need: Monitor and a Dvd-rom. I already have a soundcard and everything else. I'm pretty sure ill be over the $2,000.00 mark. I haven't ordered anything yet and wont for another week or two. Any suggestions would be appreciated and thank you in advance.

Was wondering about a heatsink for this build. My first pick was gonna be a xigmatek but this CoGage True Spirit is getting good reviews. Anyone got this for their rig?
