CPU/MB ---- 2500k/P67 mb is gaming defacto standard 95% of the time.... (short of an early Bulldozer release with miracle improvements, I doubt this will change this year, including after Intel's own socket 2011 intro...

gpu---- hard to beat the 6950(2gb) model in performance for the price....; two of them in Crossfire are formidable as well.......

he stated 1080p with that res i would go a single 6970 570 or if you are crafty with your money 2 gtx 560 ti's(?) and i agree i dont think amd can pull it off go 2500k with asrock p67 extreme4 motherboard. for cpu cooler i would go hyper 212 plus at amazon for $29.51. dvd burner dont spend over 25$ for it. and for your hard drive get a samsung spinpoint f3 1tb hard drive at amazon for $59.99. lastly grab yourself an ssd. 105$ gets you a 60gb vertex 2 ssd at amazon
