Hey guys I need help!

Budget Range: $1650-$1750 before MIR (not including mouse and monitor

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, gaming, soooo mcuh gaming (wow, crysis, starcraft 2, brink etc), music, movies and browsing the web sometimes

Parts Not Required: mouse, and i'm getting a 120hz monitor NOT for the 3d.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: amazon and any other place that has good prices, is reliable and won't charge me taxes in California

Country of Origin: I live in California

Parts Preferences:

Overclocking: Yes for sure

SLI or Crossfire: if it's worth it

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I want a 120gb SSD for my OS and some of my games, i want to be able to run most modern games games on ultra, a silent system would be good but some noise won't kill me. I want the best bang for my buck.

I won't be able to answer until sometime tomorrow =P. The more suggestion the better!
