Well a few questions before I throw my hat into this ring, since 3000 is alot to go on.

First, Im assuming you mean you have 3000 US dollars?

Also, do you plan to overclock at all/ever?

And im pretty sure you mean you have that PSU, SSD and Windows 7 Ultimate PLUS 3000 you want to use, correct?

Let me know, and I will get back to you.

i5-2500k

ASUS p8z68 Deluxe

2 sets of G Skill Ripjaws X (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1866

TWO!!!! EVGA classified 590GTX In Quad SLI

Monitor : Get like a 32" or 42" Plasma TV and just use it as a monitor. I love it personally.

Storage : 4x Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200RPM 64MB cache RAID10 Array

Use your SSD as a boot drive

Blu-Ray Burner

Any Cooler Master ATX Full Tower Case. Pick one that matches your style.

Oh, and invest in some turtle beaches. Those things kick ass and I love mine. I also have speakers, but with the turtle beaches when I am playing any FPS or 3PS I can easily here if they are behind me, to my right, to my left, etc.

Also some games are better played with a game pad so i must recommend http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

But also make sure to get any GAMING keyboard and mouse that look appealing to you, but make sure they are wired/USB.

If you would like me to be more specific let me know.
