Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP

Budget Range: ~$2500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming

Parts Not Required: Mouse, Keyboard, Case, SSD (See comments)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: Open to any idea. I just want a beast gaming rig.

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: Yes / Maybe (Looking for the best bang for the buck and best performance. Open to ideas.)

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 (unless a better monitor is suggested)

Additional Comments:
I sold my gaming rig and all I have left is my mouse. I know what keyboard, SSD, and what style case I want. I do not know what mobo, cpu, gpu, ram, psu. I will pick a case that does fits the correct mobo. I am not looking for a super large build. Mid Tower ATX like >

I will pick a case exactly like the one above that will fit said undetermined mobo.

I just want to run games at great resolution, good looking and at the BEST FRAMES. I need frames. I hate fps dips, I hate jagged lines. I wana run SWTOR, BF3, Skyrim and alike games.

I am not for or against amd or nvidia. I have had better luck with nvidia in the past.

I just want something that will make me happy for a year or so.

Thanks in advance. Again I am open to any and all ideas.

Don't get roped into thinking you need a i7 2600k CPU just go with the i5 2500k its got plenty for a gaming system.

you are spending 2500$ to play at 1080p? you can run all those games maxed out for 1500$ @ around 60fps.

you should really look into amd's eyefinity and nvidia's surround with that kind of budget.

Why such a high budget if you intend to only have it for a year?
And it is true an i5 would probably be your best bet for games.

What size screen are you looking for?
