How much are you looking to spend for your pc? Also if I was you I would go for an i5 instead of a i7 as you dont really need
hyper-threading. And how high are you aiming to overclock the CPU? Also if your pc is just for gaming I would go for 8gb of RAM instead of 16gb because 8 gb is enough for gaming.

If your playing on 1 monitor at 1920 x 1080p then will not need a $2.5k pc, if you want to play games at the max settings (next few years) as well as surf the web and watch movies I advise you go for something ALOT cheaper. I would go for something like this.... http://pcpartpicker.com/p/wkRQ

I highly recommend switching out that PSU for another one. Cooler Master PSUs are unreliable. Go with a XFX, Corsiar, or Seasonic PSU or any other brand that is more reliable. Something like the Corsair HX 650 would be great.

As others have said don't waste $2500 to have them build you a PC that you could build for about half that price.

Piggy's build is very nice - just change the PSU to a quality unit.
