Building new gaming computer

Hey guys It's time for me to get a new computer and so ive been searching the web looking for a decent gaming computer that can withstand what i throw at it. I want to be sure to be able to play games such as Skyrim, Total War series, Battlefield 3 ect on the highest settings possible. I also mod most my games and run higher up textures and or create more than the origanal number of characters in a game. For example, in Skyrim i would love it if i could just spawn 100 people and it wouldnt lag at all, or doubling the standard amount of troops in TW (Total War) witch is an RTS game : http://www.thunderboltgames.com/reviews/article/rome-total-war-review-for-pc.html anyways in most of those battles there is thousands of players. I just want a computer that can take the damage and have no lag at all. Also i mod very frequently and such and also need to be able to navigate through the hard drives and files fast. So i went and designed a computer on alien ware hoping that it can with stand my needs:

    Video card is not good enough.
    Forget about LGA2011, buy a rig based on socket 1155 and z77 maiboard.
    Go with i7-3770k if you want more cores or i5-3570k for optimal performance to price ratio. With saved money buy a powerful graphics card like GTX680 / GTX670 / Radeon 7970 and SSD as a system drive.
