whats it for?

if gaming you only need a 3570k

and only need 8gb ram

and a gtx670 is near enough as fast as a gtx680 but a fair bit cheaper

do you use blu ray? if not just get a dvd burner

do you need thunderbolt?

could also save money on the motherboard if you dont

not in the usa but sure you can save quite a few hundred dollars

no doubt a usa member can give you a parts list

edit--

would guess you could save about $400 or so and still have a really good gaming pc

I doubt i do but it was referred to by a friend. If i was to go without the thunderbolt would you recommend (GIGABYTE GA-Z77-DS3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard)? $109.99

With a $2000 limit, you can SLI the 670's. But I would save the money.
