with this whether gaming or any heavy tasking you are doing is going to kick them left and right, i have them and using it as my main gaming and working system and they work like wonders.

should cost you around 2k$-2.5k$ using the gtx560ti 2gb in sli or a single sapphire 7970 and maybe around 2.8k-3k$ if you do it in dual sapphire hd 7970 in crossfire

check newegg ^_^ i'll put up some links if you want

I didn't put up one with HD sapphire 7970 since its out of stock in newegg but it would be just a few bit cheaper than dual gtx560ti 448 core, and a bit more expensive than gtx560ti 2gb dual in sli

hey with that much money you should go extreme, if you can't get a 3930K just spend a few dollars for the extreme its worth it IMO, btw its similar to what i'm using right now just that I have sapphire hd 7970 3xfire but imo those msi gtx560ti are very powerful too in sli

here's your $2700 rig-

case is awesome!fulfills your needs being a good looking mid tower.
good 2tb hdd.
1080p 24" monitor is enough for full hd gaming.
video card is enough to max out any game at 1080p(even more)
highly recommended and reasonably priced xfx's more than enough for SLi/CX F and overclocking.
good keyboard and mouse for gaming.
8gb is more than enough but if you want grab a 16gb is here-
mobo allows overclocking and SLi/cfx with future upgrades(ivy and pcie-3 etc.)
add 200m fan for extra's very quiet.
212 evo is enough for 4.5ghz overclocking.
blu ray for movies.
240gb ssd will take care of your loading times and OS.

everything is compatible and good to go.enjoy ;)
