Chose CPU/MOBO/MEM for High-End Gaming about 1500USD

I'm upgrading my computer in the near future, maybe Q4 or Q1 2012th

The components I have now is:
| Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus
| Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 LGA775
| Noctua NH-U9B
| Gigabyte EP45-DS4
| TWIN2X4096-6400C4DHX x 2 = 8GB
| Gigabyte Radeon HD6990
| 6x SATA2 HDD
| 1x Corsair Force 3 Series F120 120GB
| Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
| Samsung SyncMaster P2770H
| Cooler Master Silent Pro 1000W
| Pioneer 115D ATA

I will need a CPU, motherboard and memory and I'm willing to spend about 1500USD.

The things I do most is gaming, burning, watch movies, download, listen to music and web browsing.

So tell me what to buy, or whether it is better to wait for the FX or another.

And if you can easily overclock this to get even better results, it is good.

Had originally thought o wait for Windows 8 and 128-bit system before I bought new, but it seems pretty delayed.

  1. For $1500 you can get very good cpu mobo and ram.
    upcoming ivy bridge cpu with asus maximus extreme z mobo is best for
    your budget.
    and for ram you can go for corsair vengeance 16 GB of ram.
    all these parts will cost no more than $1150 max.
    you should also opt for a new case and cooler in my opinion.
