  1. What's the budget? Your priorities for hardware choices are not, shall we say kosher. Way too much money in some areas where it's not important (RAM, motherboard, CPU, cooler) and not enough where it counts: the GPU. If you spend $100 less on the motherboard, $50 less on the RAM, and $50 less on the cooler you can upgrade to a Radeon 7970. Also spending $100 less on the CPU will allow you to get a good 128GB SSD.
