Need opinons on new build

Hello everyone,

After years of not having a gaming PC, I have taken it upon myself to build one (which I have not done before). I'm basically taking the $2,000 build for June 2012 that they did on this website, and tweaking it a little bit based on comments I've read and reviews online etc.

It will be mostly for gaming (and for some light lawyer stuff). I am looking to spend no more than $2,000.00, but if I can keep it around $1,800 to $1,600, the better. I have no parts to recycle. Buying will be in U.S.

I am looking to eventually do SLI (once buying another card is a bit cheaper). I don't think I'm skilled enough at this time to overclock, but I would not rule it out as an option in the future.

Please let me know any suggestions etc (or if I forgot to add something). I appreciate your help.

I know everyone hates when you recomend AMD but im going to recomend an and fx 6100 or fx 6200...Only because the fact that i own one and i know from expirience that it beats a 2500k in gaming... (Ive benchmarked a 2500k before) because i built a system for someone...But other than that good system!
