Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: Sometime during September, maybe closer to the end of it.
Budget Range: $1000. Might be able get it up to $1500. I know that's a big difference, but if you could give me advice for a $1500 build and in case i don't get the extra $500 then a $1000 build. Not $1000-1500, it's going to be either $1000 or $1500.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, surfing the internet/videos
Are you buying a monitor: No
Do you need to buy OS: Yes
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Was thinking of using Newegg's 12 month no interest thing. If other sites have a similar option then it's fine.

Thanks a lot for any and all help . This will be my first build. I watched my brother build his first PC almost 1 year ago and it seemed simple enough.
Are all these parts compatible? And what would be a good case to go along with them? One that takes full advantages of the motherboard maybe? Thanks again for any and all help.
I don't know who gave you that advice on that build but they did you wrong.
1) The 680 is known as a hose job around here seeing how the 670 hangs right with it and does so for $100 cheaper not to mention a 750w psu will push dual 670's.
2) 16GB of RAM for your needs is way over kill. 8GB of RAM for gaming is over kill but it's priced right so everyone is purchasing 8GB sets these days.
3) I can think of a half dozen or more boards that do everything the Asus Pro does and they do it for cheaper
4) WD makes great drives but a 2TB WD Black is way spendy for a storage drive. Find a cheaper storage drive and size up on your SSD. 240GB - 256GB
5) Forget PCPartPicker. It's for lazy people. If your purchasing from newegg due to their payment plan deal then use their combo's and save some $$.
