  1. looks good
  2. No reason to purchase an i7 or a Xeon for a gaming rig. No reason to purchase a closed liquid loop either when a strong air fan will give you the same overclocking results. Also pay more for a better case - don't go cheap in this area. Here's what I would suggest for that budget:
