APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Very soon

BUDGET RANGE: $1700 ish

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming on highest settings is #1! Intrnet, music, youtube, videos

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA

PARTS PREFERENCES: Prefer Nvidia but am flexible and 100% intel i5-i7, no amd what so ever!

OVERCLOCKING: Yes, 2.66 to 3.2

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Future

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 720p Sharp HDTV

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Prefer items with great reviews and high ratings (kind of an ocd thing) I'm also into the major/best brands

Should I be building a pc all by myself for the very first time with no experience?
Any advice on my build or anything I should change/reconsider?
Will this last me at least 3 years?
Will it be able to play games in the next 3 years on med-high settings?
Can cd/dvd burners also read discs?
Will the fan listed keep my cpu cool enough oc'ed at 3.2 ghz?
Are these good/high quality parts?

Sorry for all the questions.

and

Other than that I have no experience with Intel. Also, Sapphire is a good brand, they will treat you well with quality.

To answer your questions:

Yes, it helps to have some experience with changing some parts, but the step by step guides found on the internet are like "bottled experience"

It's a solid build, I personally would change the 2 things I listed, but your base build is fine

Yes it will last you 3 years, it wont be top dog in 3 years, but it will still function quite well.

Depends on the games, like the most cutting edge First Person Shooter? Probably not, but maybe on medium

Yes CD/DVD burners read discs

No experience with the 212+, the V-8 or Intel CPUs, cant help there sorry.

Your parts are of good quality.
