  1. There's no i5 CPU that will work on an X79 motherboard. You will need Z77 for that. And then 16GB of RAM won't be of use on a gaming system and there's no reason to get Pro if you don't need the networking features. Also the H80 isn't needed - go with a 212 Evo instead, and stay away from the Corsair GS series.

    Also with the 660TI out now, there's absolutely no reason to purchase a 560TI anymore. What's your budget? I can suggest a better system if I knew that.
