Additional Comments: Alright so what I'm trying to set up is my computer in one room, hooked to my TV in the room beside through an HDMI cable in the ceiling. Going to need a long HDMI cable and a wireless keyboard/mouse with about a range of 10-20 ft but that can pass through an interior wall.
Not overly certain about any piece of the gear but especially not the motherboard or the graphics. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Is there anything I'm missing? This will be my first build and any advice would be appreciated. Still need a good wireless mouse/keyboard that will work through a wall. Not building on a budget but I'm not a serious enough user to need anything too over the top.

The main reason i suggest 670 is that it's a reasonably priced card with
enough power to run any current game on ultra/max settings
runs cooler,less noise and overclocks like a beast.
less power consumption and beats a stock 680 when mild overclocked.
GTX 670 is by far better than GTX 570 plus the GTX 670 is the sweat spot for a high end graphics setup and best bang for buck.

Ok thanks for the advice. I think I'll step up to the GTX 670. I'm still trying to decide between these different mobos. Those all look like nice cases. As far as cases go I was just looking for something quiet that would keep everything cool. Not too worried about looks as the pc will be in a closet.
Anyone have any personal experience with a wireless mouse/keyboard working through a wall 10-15 ft away?
Also will I have any problems running my tv as a monitor off the GTX 670.
Finally, would I be better going with 8gigs of faster memory?
