Hello, I am currently in the process of building a gaming computer an could use some help selecting parts with a budget of around $2000 remaining, currently the only things purchased are:

Case:Corsair 500R

PSU:Corsair hx1050

Motherboard:

CPU:

Memory:

Video card:

Primary drive:2x 120gb Samsung 840 for RAID 0

Storage drive:

As you can see there are still a lot of blanks to fill. I kind of want to base it off of an x79 board but by no means is that required and am also planning on going with SLI 670s or one 680 with another added later. As a last little note I am not really experienced with overclocking and don't want to fry a computer that I just built :p  Any help would be greatly appreciated

don't go X79. sandy Bridge E is a waste of money for gaming.

Stick with an i5 3570K and a Z77 board
