You'll want a SSD. Downgrade to a 3570K + a cheaper motherboard if you don't want to spend more than what you are doing now, or just get one in addition to them if you don't mind spending the extra.

PSU: one of these (difference is modular vs non-modular)

Case and motherboard: do you want mATX or is ATX okay?

Keep the GTX 670.

Hi, you don't need an i7 for a gaming machine. Its a completely unjustified expense. An i5 is more than sufficient. Games don't use HyperThreading (and most likely never will) and this is what the i7 has the i5 doesn't.

The motherboard is a lot more expensive than it has to be.

GTX 680s aren't worth the price over the GTX 670.

Keep the GTX 670.

Ah thanks for help there..
Well about the motherboard..
i was thinking to add another GTX670 in the future but i possible will SLI my machine..
And also im going to overclock the CPU By Alot.
i heard the motherboard plays a big roll in overclocking...

so ok ill change the i7 to the i5 3570K
pick up that cooler And ssd.
but yeah is it realy a bad idea to keep the MAXIMUS mobo?
And ATX is good.
thanks for the info..
