System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Web browsing

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: None

Additional Comments:

Focused on gaming, my main goal is to be able to run the upcoming Arma 3 on ultra settings whilst running smoothly.
I don't know if this is possible with my budget range and parts preference, so this can increase to $2500 though I'd prefer to stay below $2000.
I'd like a nice case, good air flow that's affordable
I need good air cooling, I don't care about sound.

What made you pick the i5, was it for budget?
Is it worth the extra $80 for the i7-2600K?

Thanks for the quick reply, really appreciate it. Great list

i5s will perform the same as a i7 in any game. i7 is only useful when you are doing workloads such as photoshop or video rendering. i5 can do video rendering fine for the most part. no, i5s are just the choice for gamers since it is cheap and fast
