What is your target budget?

How much are you wanting to spend on a case?

What resolution are you planning on playing at?

What website are you planning on buying from?

Most of your savings will come from combo deals, promocodes, and free shipping. I HIGHLY recommend signing up for Newegg's weekly newsletter has they normally contain great offers.

Far as graphics you would be better served by getting a HD 7850 or waiting for the GTX660ti. However from what I understand the GTX660ti is rumored to only have 1.5 GB of memory which is somewhat low by today's standards. I would not dismiss AMD. Their cards are very durable and have good multi-monitor support.

Durability? Do you plan on using your video card as a frisbee? LOL. Seriously, AMD has good cards worth looking at. Particularly at the price point range you're looking at 7870 vs the GTX 570.. Between those two I'd take a 7870.

AS far as good boards, personally I'm not a big fan of Gigabyte. To be fair though, anything mass produced runs a risk of being bad out of the box, but I had a $180 Gigabyte board die on me 3 weeks into use. Went with an Asus Sabertooth to replace it and never looked back.

Every brand has good quality boards and bad. Its hit or miss. Biostar, Asus, Asrock, Gigabyte, MSI all have some good boards and some really bad boards.

As far as Nvidia video cards, EVGA and Zotac both make good cards, for AMD cards, as a rule Sapphire is probably the best, XFX have some decent ones too.

Since we're on the topic of quality. MicroCenter is great to buy from in store, but I would strongly suggest you consider Newegg if ordering online. Possibly TigerDirect or NCIX. MicroCenter prices look cheaper at first glance, but they tack on shipping and taxes that make it pretty much the same price as the aforementioned stores. Meanwhile Newegg ships many things for free and ship a lot faster.

As far as Asrock, this Z68 board is probably one of the best boards in its class you could possibly buy

For Z77 chipsets, this one got Tom's Hardware's seal of approval:

Asrock was originally a subsidiary of Asus, basically it was like the budget brand for Asus motherboards. But they are now their own company and in the last couple years have really put out some very nice motherboards.

For video cards, based on the level of performance you mentioned, both of these would be great choices:

EVGA GTX 570 Superclocked

Sapphire 7870
