Ok. I recently ordered Asus Nvidia 670 GTX DC2T GPU. Will pick it up today.
Now I'm looking to upgrade to a whole new system, to support this beast.

1) The CPU I'm looking at:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
This is the link of my shop in Israel - I think it's the same thing, have a look:
http://ksp.co.il/?uin=15557

I want to try the newest tech possible, thats why I am taking Ivy Bridge. Would you recommend this CPU or something else?

2) Do I need to buy a new heatsink+fan? or is the new Ivy Bridge CPUs comes with good cooling? Also do I need to buy "thermal paste" or does it comes with the CPU itself?
3) Motherboard? whats the most efficient and compatible?
4) Ram? give me the best and fastest. And how much RAM do I need?
5) Of course a nice Case recommendation will be nice, altho my choices here are limited.
6) Of Course Harddisk?
7) Very critical - Power supplier?

Please recommend me the best manufacturer etc..
Final comment, I might consider OC'in in the future, but for now, upgrading into such a beast, I rather not mess with any OC and BIOS stuff if I can, because anyhow all games will run like a rocket with this rig.

I was waiting to upgrade for over 5 years! I want my system to stay powerful for many more years.

Please help as much as you can. Thanks.

don't know, thats why I'm asking recommends.
I want my system to be future compatible and upgradable, so I won't need to replace the whole thing in a few years.
I don't know anything about the new current hardware, so I really don't want to miss the mark here.

an i5 is just dandy for gaming. an i7 is a bit of overkill and is more for video editing or other heavily threaded applications
http://ksp.co.il/?uin=16104 <-- i think i got it. you would need a good cpu cooler when you decide to overclock and usually though the stock heatsink that will come with the cpu has thermal paste on it, i clean it off and use a better quality TP.


edit: these the choices for motherboards? just asus and gigabyte?

Oh you threw a full PC offer.
While I will probably buy the whole system with this shop, I rather choose my parts myself.
Did you mean this:
http://ksp.co.il/?uin=15556
Is that still Ivy bridge? 3.4 isnt too low? and really don't I need to grab the I7?

@looniam I think they have better options, don't advice me according to this shop. Just recommend and I see where I can get it.
@jay_nar2012 Please be more specific. You are showing me 2 mobos, why?

I really need some background guys about everything you offer. thx.

thats still ivy bridge.
somehow i got that system build configuration and it seems nice enough if you are going to buy all your componeints there. do you have a budget?
pssst think the asus P8Z77-V pro . . .

edit those were not my parts i picked but suggested . .

Hard for me to point out the exact budget.
Basically, with CPU I rather have a very solid one for current and future gaming. One that together with the GPU I ordered, can max my games' video settings, without need to worry about framrate.
Same goes for RAM, its the "cheaper" part, but I don't know whats the fastest, and how much I need.
Motherboard is important, so I rather not make mistakes there. whats the differences about them?
Of course every other part is important as well.

ok i put together a cpu, cpu cooler, motherboard, ram and a power supply for a start. those are just suggestions from what i saw on this site:
http://ksp.co.il/?uin=16104

as i said a i5-3570K is plenty to do gaming with. games will not take advantage of the hyperthreading of an i7. you can, when you fell comfortable enough, overclock the cpu to 4.2+Ghz very easily.
i picked the P8Z77-v pro because it is a very well featured motherboard (pci express slots, usb3 sataIII ports) and is very reliable for the cost.
corsir ram is very reliable and getting low profile helps to make sure that it fits under the larger noctua heatsink (which itself is a very good air cooling solution for the i5). btw, 1600 ram (1.5 volt) is the sweat spot for gaming.

i hope that is something of a start to help. i am sorry that i need to go, it is very late in the states right now. good luck.

@looniam
Sry but the links your'e sending me doesn't work. You will need to send me each item in seprate if you can.

Damn they're thieves here. They are charging more for the P8Z77-v Pro than the CPU = 291 $!
But yeah that's an issue in Israel, everything is much more expansive than the US thanks to shipping cost & import taxes & customs.

Either way, please advice me what you think is best. Difference aren't that big here, so I can go high end.
