Approximate Purchase Date: July

Budget Range: $1500-1700

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming - Photo/Video Editing - Surfing

Parts Not Required: Mouse, Keyboard, Speakers, Headphones, Video Card

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: http://newegg.com & http://dynaquestpc.com

Country: Philippines

Parts Preferences: Intel CPU & Mobo

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080 (possibly 2560 x 1440)

Additional Comments: It would be a big plus if it ran cool and quiet, and could support the highest graphics settings on most high-end games today with great FPS.

These are what I have in mind so far.

Motherboard: ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Memory: G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

SSD: Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB SATA III

I still need help picking out a good Power Supply, Cooler, and Case for all these components to work well together.

For now, I will be using my iMac as a monitor through Displayport. But that means I will need things to run smoothly at 2560 x 1440 until I save up for another monitor that supports 1920 x 1080. Any suggestions and advice concerning that would be very much appreciated too. Thanks. :)
