The ones I posted are complete builds. u wont go wrong just following it as it is. If u read the article completely u even have the assembly instructions and so forth.
Go ahead and order the parts from the Hand picked build. Ofcourse u can change the components as per ur requirement.
U mentioned that u r not looking to CF / SLI. If u drop one 6970 u 'll end up with a 1700$ single GPU build.

Just a quick note. Make sure u get this mobo as it is better than the other and it costs a little more.

Asus P8P67 WS Revolution: LGA 1155, Intel P67 Express
The difference is that this Board sports a NF200 chipset (from Nvidia) for full bandwidth on the PCIe lanes.
Good luck.
