Gaming/Work build

Hi all,

I'm looking to find parts for a new custom built computer and im hoping the community can help.

Budget: $2500 (OS not included)

Wants: Gaming machine, Quiet & Cool Running Machine, Dual Monitor Setup (res 1920 x1080)

I'm not looking for a fancy chassis but looking for a Chassis that will will really help airflow at least 6 USB port. I'm also wanting a very good cooler in summer where I live it is needed. GFX card I trust Nvidia, but i am open to suggestions, I would like to see 6 to 8 gigs of ram, 1 TB hard drive (prefer WD but will accept seagate or maxtor), motherboard im completely lost on. NIC and sound card depend on motherboard but I like quality sound.

It has been a long time since I have been around hardware and really hoping someone can help out here.
