Approximate Purchase Date: End of today(!)

Budget Range: ~$1,000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Games, Compiling Code, Watching Movies, Internet

Parts Not Required: Mouse, Speakers, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: NewEgg.com

Country: Washington, USA

Parts Preferences: I prefer Intel but do not shun AMD CPU's, I do however prefer (heavily) Nvidia GFX cards.

Overclocking: No (Maybe?)

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: Here is what I got so far:

MoBo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
GFX: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Keyboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Fan: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

My biggest concerns are that everything wont fit together. I am pretty sure I got all the sockets and slots worked out but I don't know if that GFX card will rub against anything on that MoBo. Any feedback is appreciated and I have this page open ready to answer questions as I see them. Thank you again.

EDIT: The price range I have set is after tax, shipping, and fees. That is why I am not building off a i5 2500k. I need to be able to get all the components listed above for around $1,000.

at $1000 you should be building based on the intel 2500k , a z68 mb , a 560 ti or radeon 6950 and a 500- 600 watt psu

Ah sorry I should I have said that $1,000 is AFTER shipping, tax, and fees. Also I have switched the card to a 560Ti, it was only a little bit more but should be worth it.
