Hi! I'm looking to build a nice desktop for gaming purposes only! I occasionally do some rendering, but that's really not what I'm focusing on. I don't really have a budget limit, so just give me some suggestions. Here's some things I want to consider:

Processor: Intel i5 2500k or intel i7 2600k
Graphics card: ATI 6990 4GB or ATI 7970 3GB
RAM: 2x 4GB Cosair Vengence
Motherboard: GigaByte Z68AP-D3 Intel Z68

For the power supply and what not, I really don't have any preferences. If you have better opinions, please tell me, because I'm not really that pro at hardware and stuff...sooo...THANKS A LOT!

btw, I play games like
-Battlefield 3
-Skyrim
-Modern warfare 3

I would love to play all these games on ultra if possible. I would also like it to last a while and not totally outdate within 2 or 3 years.

i5-2500k, 7970 why such a low end motherboard? A gigabyte z68x-ud4 would be a good choice.

quality power supplies are mainly from corsair and seasonic, personally I wouldn't get a sound card unless your motherboards one is terrible or you use really hi def audio

I'd possibly opt for a 850w PSU personally if the intention was ever to add a second card.

And H100.....really? Just put a nice 212+/EVO in there for 1/4 of the price and your away :) 

An SSD would be a nice addition to the build.
