Your mobo and CPU arent compatiable.

wait a week or two and get this
Core i5 2500k[CPU](Unless youre video editing you have no need for an i7)
Asus P8p67 PRO (MOBO)
12gb of ram is not needed for a gaming rig.
get Hyper 212 + (CPU Cooler)
ATi 6950 ( GPU)
Samsung Spinpoint 1TB (HDD)

Swap this with whatever is in your build with mine.
