In order to do what you want you need to get a intel 2500k and a p67 mobo this is the newest and the best atm. the v10 cooler is bad i have one dont waste your money on it. Cut the V10 and get a Gtx580 not a 480. 4gb of ram is good. What do you need a sound card for that motherboard sound card is great. i do like the big bang boards.

It is not better then the 2600k but the i5 is the best for gaming for the price it blows away the outdated i7-950

I recommend you switch out a few of your parts for these ones below on the intel build. The sandy bridge based processors are the best available right now. Here are some parts off of that price list to switch to:

CPU - Intel Core i5-2500 ( the i7-2600 is better, but not much)
Motherboard - ASUS P8H67M (try to make sure it has 4 ram slots)
RAM - Kingston 2GB DDR3 1333 x3 (6GB total)
Video Card - MSI N580GTX or the MSI R6970 2GB GDDR5

You can save some money by switching the power supply to the Thermaltake 775W or 875W. 1200W is overkill unless you plan to run an SLI or Crossfire setup and overclock it.

With the Antec Twelve Hundred case you should have great air flow and won't need the VGA coolers. The MSI models of those video cards have good cooling fans built-in.

The sound card is also unnecessary since the motherboard has 7.1 sound already. Unless of course you have some awesome super-duper surround sound system that will actually make use of a sound card. I am usually happy with a good set of headphones.

haha! I kinda prefer speakers than headphones though. It kinda hurts my ear when you wear it for so many hours a day. XD

The 470 runs quiet and cooler than the 480 but the 480 is roughly 20% faster.

The 470 will do great in most games, especially if you're resolution is under 1920x1200. You could consider the 570 too, which is better than the 470, cheaper than 480 and will help more with DirectX 11 games.

I would go with the Radeon HD 6970 over all of them personally (its the MSI R6970 2GB GDDR5 on your price list).

I have a Phenom II x4 at 3.2GHz with a single Radeon HD 6950 in my own computer and I can run every game I own at max setting and get great FPS. The 6970 is even better than what I've got so I'm sure it will do fine, and you can get another and run crossfire later on if games start to need more power.

Rift, Oblivion, MW2, Farcry 2, Mass Effect 2 all run perfectly on my 1920x1080 monitor.

Here's a review by tom's hardware that gives a little more info.

So, the 580 GTX is still the best card you can get, but the 6970 is a great choice with excellent performance.

yes the 2500k and 2600k are different. they both run about $30-$40 more than the other versions, but they are much more overclockable

ya that's right, i dont know if you are familiar with tampering with settings ,but i would buy the XFX HD6950 and flash the bios to 6970 bios here is an article about how to do it http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/overclocking/vidcar... that way you pay for the 6950 with 6970 performance :ange:
