Approximate Purchase Date: By the 29th of June
Budget Range: Looking to spend about 2000$
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming and can usually run everything else.

Parts Not Required: Looking to build a fresh new one completly, but don't need a mouse.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Buying the whole build from newegg.com

Country: America, New Jersey

Parts Preferences: Looking to use Intel CPU and MOBO but whatever works

Overclocking: Maybe, just dont wanna break anything.

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe if its in my price range

Monitor Resolution:1920x1080

Additional Comments: Have a build one already that's around 1950$ and it will be in the link below, let me know if i messed up on anything as well. Looking to play all the recent games on Ultra (Diablo 3, GW2, and so on). Also want to stream the games and multi task. I will possibly Cross fire/SLI in the future and buy the same GPU.

merueth's build looks ok. the only thing i would change is the motherboard to a gigabyte z77x-ud5h, and the video card. the ud5h has a bit more features than the extreme6

for the video card, here are some other options

gigabyte windforce 670
evga ftw 670
asus top edition 670 (although this model has a lot of bad reviews)
msi twin frozer 4 670 (good looks in my opinion
