Hello, I am looking to piece together my own computer but am having trouble getting started. I plan to play games, both online and not. Any feedback on processors and the like?

Hi theladner12!
Could you tell us the budget of your new build?

Many samples in our forum on gaming builds. You can also check in youtube for some cool ideas. But most important is your budgeting.

Ok,
Do you want a single screen or Multi Display setup?
intel i5 2500k
Asrock xtreme4 p67 mobo
Coolermaster Hyper212 Heatsinkfan
4~8 gb of ram
Single display gpu: gtx570 or ati hd 6950 OR Multidisplay: gtx 560ti SLI, ati6950CF
hdd: 1tb
psu: Corsair TX 750w.

This should be what you are looking at.Since i dont live in the US so i am not so familliar with the USA prices.

Case purely depends on your own requirements.

^that's a good build skeleton up there. For the PSU, get a 600W with one GPU or a 750 for two.
