Silver arrow sb-e $84
Asus p8z77-v pro $214
OCZ Vertex 4 256GB $209
HAF-922 $100
seasonic m12II 750 $120
i5 3570K $230
carsair xms3 16GB $89

Those are the prices I've come up with on various sites, I plan on adding a gtx690 to the system when I can, but to get started these are the parts/prices I've found. Let me know if there are suggestions to be made or things that I am missing. I have some old sata HDDs I was planning on throwing in the system as well for additional storage.

I'm trying to keep the price around $1000 for these parts since the video card will double it

My budget is around $2000; if its worth it I can stretch a bit above that.

I really liked the look of the scout case, but that does not have USB 3 on the front panel and I thought that would be nice, so I chose the HAF-922, similar look but newer.

I live in the US, the parts would be a full build gaming computer that I would like to overclock. as far as upgrades, I really like nvidia products for video cards. I will hopefully be putting in a GTX690 and if Im really lucky in the way future adding a second, but that is not needed.

I could go on and on about why I chose the parts listed, but anything you can suggest would be appreciated. Keep the questions comming, I've never asked about computer builds before, so I sound like a jackarse Im sure.
