If you have better recommendations i would be happy to know my price is $2000 icluding postage and i plan to use it for gaming and do some overclocking. thanks to anyone in advanced.

ps. i'm one for aesthetics so i want it to look half decent

ok, so i've takin some ideas from poeple and edited my plan here is the new one

i dont know why but i just love that motherboard it seems goodfor the price and looks great the extreme 6 wasnt as appealing and 670's outperform 7970's or average for about $15-$20 difference so... also it is easier (and probably cheaper) if i get most of my components from the same place.
thanks Kamen_Bg i used your build to rebuild mine abit but i tried to make it look nicer to me and as i said i just like the msi mpower its a nice motherboard


i have been able to up the budget to $2500 and so i got a new build

More about build
  1. Get a smaller PSU thats crazy overkill, even with some extreme overclocking a 750W would be way more than needed, a 650W would be more than plenty.
  2. Yeah, save some money on that PSU and try for a GTX670
  3. They are OK but for that kind of a budget you can do even better.
    Ill make you a build myself that will be an improvement over this one in just about every area.

    As i said here's that build.

    Total: $1417.10
    (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

    And ill also make you a second build.It will be pretty much the best gaming machine you can build under 2000$.

    And the third build i made you is EXTREMELY future proof.It has a very good Core i7 and it's based on the LGA 2011 Platform which means that if you need more CPU power, you can just put in a eight core Ivy Bridge-E without having to buy a new motherboard.

  4. That case is really unnecessary unless you have a E-ATX and a full water cooling loop, and you don't need a blue ray drive unless you have a huge collection of blue ray movies. Here is a much better build:

    That particular psu is manufactured by Sirtec, that OCZ 3 SSD is junk, the board over priced, and plan on spending another $25+ on a back plate for that Gigabyte card seeing how it's longer than your typical graphics card and it tends to twist when the fans get reved up.
