New gaming computer I'm building that can handle Crysis at max settings 1920x1080. Got a $2000 budget but would prefer to not max it out. I'm buying from amazon to avoid tax and for super saver shipping. Any thoughts/recommendations?

I don't think I'm going to overclock, as I want this build to last me as long as possible. So I won't need the extra fan, and I'm probably going to stick with the 965, as I don't want to spend so much on the processor when I already have a nice graphics card. Remember, this computer is mostly for gaming.

Thanks for the replies though. Any other thoughts?
