I am looking to buy this by the end of this month. Mostly going to be used for a gaming machine and photoshop.

My budget is $2000. I don't need HDDs or DVDrom. I would like to stick with an NVIDIA graphic setup.

Please review my order and see if there is anything I can improve upon. Thank you all for your continued help!

Oh I will be using newegg mostly. If there is a better deal I am open to it.

Excellent choices! Newegg is fine. For the CPU check prices at MicroCenter if you live close to the store. They have excellent pricing on CPUs for walk-in customers.
