I was wondering what I should get for my new build. My overall budget is 1800$ but that includes the monitors, speakers, keyboard, etc. Here's what I got so far:

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k or AMD FX8350

Memory: 16GB DDR3 G-SKILL Trident-X 1866MHz Memory

Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth Z77 or Asus Sabertooth 990FX motherboard

Graphics Card: AMD Radeon 7870 or AMD Radeon 7950 (I was thinking the HIS Ice-Q or the Gigabyte windforce cards)

PSU: Seasonic 760w 80+ Platinum PSU

Case: I have no idea. I want something with good cable management, airflow, and look nice too. I was thinking the Level 10GT, Corsair 650D, or a Bitfenix case.

HDD/SDD: 2x Samsung 840 120GB + Hitatchi 3TB 7200RPM HDD

Keyboard: No idea. The razer blackwidow looks nice.

Mouse: The razer deathadder or some corsair mouse.

Monitor: BenQ XL2420T 120Hz monitor

Please recommend graphic cards, cases, keyboards, etc.

This system will be used for games like BF3, Skyrim, and WoW.
