CPU Go for i5. No dif in gaming at all

MOBO if you like massive ultra overclocking go for asus rog series like maximus V formula/extreme simple clocking you will do on almost any bord so you can save some dollars and go fo asus P8Z77

GPU like AMD? go for 7970 (better performance/price then radeon)

RAM pick some 8 - 16 GB with same freq as your mobo max gets

CASE any you like ;p

PSU aboout 700W shoud do fine. Get 800 if you plan crosfire/sli. get one from good manufacture like ocz or corsair

some ssd and storage and you will be good to go xD
