I'm a first time builder, so my knowledge of gaming desktops are limited. I just need some insight. :) 

Specs:
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3
CPU: i5-2500k
CPU Cooler: XIGMATEK Gaia
GPU: GeForce GTX 560 Ti
Memory: Kingston 8GB
HDD: Seagate 500GB
Case: CM Storm Enforcer (I know that it isn't the best, but it's just so sexy)
PSU: Corsair 650w

Thank you.

cpu+mobo combo:

great ram, great price w/ promo code EMCKCHB25

750w and 4 pci-e connectors for SLI:

nothing wrong with the storm enforcer, imo, but id add the top 200mm fan:

id also grab a 1tb drive (theyre faster, especially this one):

Thanks for the input :) 

Everything you suggested was excellent. The case fan and the mobo combo are great. You also saved my ass by reminding me to upgrade my PSU.
