Hey Guys!
I already have an ssd, hard drive and optical drive, so they wont be present on the list.

I want a gaming build that can play most games on ultra settings at good FPS. My budget is 1200 dollars and I just need some advice.

Case:
COOLER MASTER CM Storm Scout 2
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU:
GTX-670 FTW
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU:
Fatal1ty 750w
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM:
8gb Gskill sniper 2133mhz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Motherboard:
Fatal1ty Z77 series or Asus ROG

CPU:
Intel i5 3540 or 3570k


Theme build is black and red. Need advice on mobo and CPU.
Not intending to overclock, but i will as long as its at a safe condition.
If X79 is preferable I am OK with that.
Thanks

Best solution

This build here is very similar. It has a similar case, that looks BA.
Motherboard has tons of expandability.
You picked really good RAM.
This PSU is same quality, just a little cheaper and allows for another 670 in the future.
The ASUS 670 is the best you card you can get for the money. It will overclock better than a stock 680.
Since you have thoughts of overclocking, the 3570k is as good as they come.
The aftermarket cooler isn't expensive, but its a great cooler.
