Here is what I have came up with on my own. Let me know what you think and what you would change. What I had the most questions on was, is it worth the money to go Ivy bridge over sandy bridge? And video cards always trip me up. I am thinking of going with the GTX 670 but some people say 7970. I have also read that the GTX570-580 will play all the games I mentioned on High settings and it would be a good option for SLI. Anyways, here is my list.
