Hi! I came up with this list on newegg so far for a new gaming comp Im building. I havent built a computer by myself before so Im not sure on the compatibility of everything. My budget is $2000, but I have no problem going over a little.
My concerns are compatibility and if everything will fit. I also dont know if I have any piece thats not up to the par with the others that will hold my comp back. Any insight or help would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!

What will be the main use of the computer?
You can save $100 with a i5-2500k and have just as good performance.
You can take the $100 saved from the cpu change and get a GTX 580.
Power supply could be higher , 750w.
The motherboard can be a little less expensive , there is no need for a $275 MB. and it's the wrong model for the cpu that you chose the MB is a 1366 socket and the cpu is a 1155 socket.
For $340, the 570 costs ya $0.65 per frame with 526 fps as a single card (Guru3D Game Test Suite) and $0.78 to get those 873 fps in SLI. For $230, the 900 Mhz 560 Ti costs ya $0.43 per frame with 495 fps as a single card (Guru3D Game Test Suite) and $0.50 to get those 862 fps in SLI. I'll give up 11 fps, to put $320 back in my pocket. Yes the 570 can be OC'd too but it has VRM issues (google "fried 570") and these 560's have OC ceilings as high as 30% ... they took this one from 900 to 1070
-I have 4 Neo's in my junk draw. If ya go with the 1200 or DF-85 cases from above the CP-850 is a no brainer .... extremely cool running and quiet....not to mention cheap at $115 ..... in giving it a 10.0 performance rating, jonnyguru said it would cost ya twice as much to get something comparable.....and it works with the aforementioned cases in away that was termed "unfair competition" by silentpcreview.com
