Hi guys, I recently decided to build my own super computer to catch up with PC gaming today and I need some help. My budget is $2000 and these are the parts I have been looking at so far (Im pretty new at this so here goes)..

Processor:
Intel Core i7 3960x Extreme Edition

Graphics Card:
Radeon 7970 HD Crossfire

Motherboard:
Rampage IV Extreme X79 LGA

Thats all the parts I am thinking about for now. I am very open to suggestions! Again, Im new at this so I dont know if these parts would bottleneck or if they simply wont work together or if some parts are overkill

To note - I simply want a really good computer that can have the best graphics and run high quality games at 60fps all the time. Thanks!

For gaming, your CPU + MoBo is overkill. Stick with LGA 1155.

i5 - 3570k
Asrock z77 Extreme 4
XFX Pro 750W Silver Rated
2 x EVGA FTW gtx 670
Mushkin Enhanced Blacklyne Frostbyte 8 Gb (4Gb x 2) DDR3 1600 1.5 V CL9
Corsair 500R
WD Caviar Blue 1 TB
Crucial m4 128 Gb
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

This system should blow through any current games.
